Minecraft Amiibo figures are in demand


Emma Clark

Microsoft has said that Minecraft Amiibo figures are in demand after it recently announced Minecraft: Wii U Edition, which will be out on December 17th.

Microsoft recently announced Minecraft for Wii U and fans seemingly are crying out to get Amiibo figures related to the game.

Microsoft community manager Helen Zbihlyj responded to fan queries on the Microsoft Studios blog and said, "We do know that there’s a lot of demand for a Minecraft Amiibo." Unfortunately, she didn't have any more news to share on that. "No idea if we’ll get one," Zbihlyj wrote.

The ball appears to be in Nintendo's court as to whether or not fans will be able to purchase Minecraft Amiibo.

Fans also asked if Minecraft's Alex or Steve might crop up in other Nintendo games like Smash Bros. or Mario Kart 8. But, again, it's up to the studios that develop the games to reach out to Microsoft.

Minecraft: Wii U Edition will be released on December 17th.
