These Were the Top Selling Amiibo Around the World in 2015

By | 9 months ago 

Nintendo releases statistics detailing the best-selling amiibo throughout the world, allowing people to see which of the figures are the most popular.

The introduction of amiibo by Nintendo in 2014 was a huge financial success for the company. Whilst the Wii U can’t seem to compete in sales when it comes to current-generation consoles, the Big N announced lately that the sale of Amiibo figures alone has generated 204.1 billion yen (about $1.7 billion in USD) between April 1st and September 30th.

As many fans strive to collect them all, amiibo are selling incredibly well and now Nintendo have released statistics detailing the most successful figures in the US, Europe, and Japan regions. Here are 2015’s best-sellers:

Japan amiibo


1. Inkling Girl (Splatoon)

2. Ika (Splatoon)

3. Inkling Boy (Splatoon)

4. Mario (Super Mario)

5. Mario (Classic Color)

6. Mario (Modern Color)

7. Isabelle (Winter Clothing) (Animal Crossing)

8. Kirby (Smash Bros.)

9. Mega Yarn Yoshi – Green (Yoshi’s Wooly World)

10. Digby (Animal Crossing)

8. Inkling Boy (Splatoon)

9. Toad (Super Mario)

10. Inkling Girl (Splatoon)

While the company didn’t provide any figures to go along with the statistics, it still provides an interesting breakdown as to what each region is most invested in. In the United States, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is the dominant seller for amiibos, with classic Mario being he only non-Smash Bros. figure making it into the top 10. Japan on the other hand, appears to favor the few released Splatoon amiibo to any other variety. Sales in Europe are more of a mixed bag, with a variety of the collectables making the cut.

In contrast to games like Skylanders and Disney Infinity, amiibos rarely add much content to the games they are used in, yet Nintendo’s figures are still incredibly popular. Surely it’s only a matter of time before the Big N release their own amiibo title and utilize the collectables to their full potential. In order for that to be possible however, the company will have to find its way past the regular amiibo shortages that hit all too often. To their credit, Nintendo have acknowledged the shortages and have promised to do better in the future.
