While we are no closer to knowing if the Monster Hunter Amiibo will be coming to America, the first pictures of the Amiibo in packaging have surfaced. Reddit user, Rikipy, recently shared an image of the upcoming Japanese Amiibo release and it is a bit different than what we’re used to. The plastic is certainly taller than with previous Amiibo to accommodate the larger figure but the cardboard backing is also interesting because it is in a different style than previous Amiibo. While I have seen some call it busy (and there is certainly a lot going on), I don’t think it looks too bad and the blue definitely pops. That is always a good thing when placing any new Amiibo on crowded store shelves. It is hard to know if this figure will come to the US since Nintendo of America has never acknowledged it despite it being a poorly kept secret, but my gut feeling is that it won’t. Regardless, the Monster Hunter Stores Amiibo should still be available online, especially through Japanese retailers for Monster Hunter fans who want these figures.
Will you be ordering this Amiibo even if it is Japan-only? What do you think of the new packaging? Do you like it well enough to keep these Amiibos unopened? Let us know in the comments below!
