In Nintendo’s latest financials report, the company revealed that its amiibo line of figurines performed rather poorly in its first fiscal quarter. 1.7 million amiibo were sold last quarter, compared to 4.2 million amiibo sold in the same quarter last year. That’s a drop of 60% year over year.
Going back to amiibo.
Sales are down 60% YoY for the figure type. From 4.2m in Q1 FY15 to 1.7m in Q1 FY16.
Not great news.

Overall, however, amiibo have been a huge success. Nintendo announced that 36.9 million amiibo have been sold worldwide, in addition to 30.2 million amiibo cards.
