Ever since its release in Nov. 2014, there has been shortage of Amiibos which angered fans. Last Apr. 2, the situation got worse when the fourth wave of preorder figures resulted to more shortages.
The Cheat Sheet reported, “Things started off badly when GameStop.com went down under the strain of people trying to preorder Amiibos. The company put up an “under maintenance” notice along with a statement sending customers to its physical stores to lock in their Amiibo preorders. That plan failed, too, as GameStop’s point-of-service sales system collapsed under the weight of all the orders coming in at once.”
The website also criticizes that Nintendo did not manufacture nearly enough Amiibos to meet the rising demand. Moreover, Nintendo does not seem concerned in correcting this shortage issue and the current demand of Amiibos had so far caused worst problems .
