It is expected that Skyward Sword Link, Twilight Princess Link and Majora's Mask Link will all be available on June 30. In addition, Nintendo also scheduled Corrin, Bayonetta and Cloud Amiibo to hit the shelves on July 21.

Hackers Discover New Gear In Code

Nintendo announced that the latest iteration of "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" would be featured in figures believed to unlock a few in-game armor sets tailored to their installments. Note that the Fierce Deity gear was previously unearthed by hackers after digging through the game's code, Mic reported. In addition, the Twilight Princess Link amiibo is set to complete the Twilight set.

The other amiibos are set to be released for "Super Smash Bros." on the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. Bayonetta, Coriin and Cloud will each be available in two costumes. Corrin will be featured in both male and female version, Bayonetta will get both costumes from the original game and the sequel while Cloud will wear his standard outfit and the "FFVII: Advent Children" outfit. Note that the three characters are the last to join the roster of "Super Smash Bros."

Nintendo Discontinues Japanese Version of Famous Console

In other news, latest reports reveal that Nintendo has decided to discontinue the miniature NES Classic console. It has been confirmed that the Japanese version of the Famicom Classic, also known as the Nintendo Classic Mini Family Computer will no longer be produced. Similar to the NES Classic, the console offered a lineup of 30 retro games.

Nintendo, however, did not discount the possibility that the Famicom Mini would make a comeback. For now, the product has ended production. Fans who opt to pick up this version of the console may have to deal with marked-up gray market sellers, The Verge reported.
