Nintendo sent word this morning that a few expected titles for the holiday season are on their way! Starting with the news that fan-favorite "Captain Toad" will be available for WiiU on the eShop beginning December 5, 2014. As someone who has spent sometime with the title this is a great explorative puzzler with fun gameplay and hilarious style. It will run you $39.99.

Nintendo also revealed that November 21, 2014 will mark the launch of the first set of 12 Amiibos. This first wave will include "12 iconic Nintendo characters" Mario, Peach, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Link, Fox, Samus, Wii Fit Trainer, Villager, Pikachu, Kirby and Marth,. A second wave of 6 more figures will launch in December this year. The Amiibos will run $12.99 and will work with select titles. The figures will of course work with "Super Smash Bros WiiU" immediately and will work with Mario Party 8, Mario Kart 10, Captain Toad's and others after they receive a software update in 2015.

Hopefully you've hidden your piggy bank.
