Nintendo’s Next Wave of amiibos to be Sold Only Through eBay

The market for amiibos – Nintnedo’s series of character toys that offer perks when connected to selected games – has become rather lucrative for secondary sales, with the more rare figures being sold on for up to $100. In an effort to suppress this grey market Nintendo has agreed an exclusive partnership with eBay store xXxNoScopexXx to sell the next wave of amiibo figurines.

The deal is designed to stop inflated mark-ups on the resale market by making distribution cheaper and more efficient. Sources close to the deal suggest that this is part of Nintendo’s broader strategy to embrace new market trends.
