Nintendo’s long-awaited third-party amiibo figures for Persona 5‘s Joker and Dragon Quest XI‘s Hero was finally confirmed for release in early October. Now both figures are available for pre-order and ready to be part of your ever-growing collection of plastic minifigs.
Nintendo’s Amiibo collection continues to grow with the addition of third-party Smash characters, increasing the total roster of Amiibo figurine availables to over 170. With Joker and Hero being the stars of popular JRPG entries that don’t see a lot of product released in the West, this could be the perfect opportunity to get two of your favorite heroes for way less than even a minifigure. Unique nendoroid.
Seeing Joker receiving an Amiibo is particularly intriguing, as it has yet to be released in a Nintendo Switch game in North America. Persona 5 and Persona 5 Royal remain exclusive to PlayStation 4, and although Persona 5 Scramble was released in Japan on February 20, Nintendo and Atlus have both been silent on if and when this action RPG sequel would make its way to the western audience.
