Noticeably absent from Nintendo’s press release today was mentions of a Super Mario Maker/Mario amiibo bundle (as available in Europe). Who knows what’s going to happen, but this was NoA’s holiday plan, and the lack of mention of either is not a good omen. We’ll keep watching across the rest of the year for announcements of either release.
