Nintendo has revealed a breakdown of sales of their near-field communication-enabled Amiibo figurines after boasting great sales as part of their fiscal results in January 2015.
At the end of 2014, 5.7 million Amiibos had been sold, and now a Nintendo investor briefing translated by DualShockers has revealed that consumers in US and Canada have snapped up 63% of Amiibos sold worldwide.
Another chart reveals the most popular and rarest Amiibo figures in each territory. In North America, Europe and Japan, Link is the most popular, but in Australia its Mario. In Japan Captain Falcon is the hardest Amiibo to find, while in North America it's Marth, in Europe it's Little Mac, and in Australia it's Ike.
Ike? Whatever floats your boat Australia.
Amiibos have been subject to supply shortages worldwide, which Nintendo president Satoru Iwata says is down to the figurines being produced and released in a short period of time and certain constraints such as retail space.
Iwata added that if there was sufficient demand from retailers and consumers, Nintendo would consider making more of the rarer Amiibo figures.
Amiibos were released last November to coincide with the release of Super Smash Bros for Wii U and also work with the 3DS version.
The next major title to include large scale support will be Mario Party 10, for which Nintendo is releasing a range of new figurines for classic Super Mario characters Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, Toad and Bowser.
