Nintendo UK has confirmed pricing for their upcoming line of Amiibo NFC-enabled toy figurines.

Listed on the Nintendo UK website, the first set of figures will cost £10.99 each. The first Amiibo range includes Link, Kirby, Samus, Pikachu, Mario and more. All 12 figures in the first release are now available for pre-order either from Nintendo themselves, or at Amazon or GAME.

Amiibo - Smash Bros
The initial ‘Super Smash Bros. Collection’ Amiibo toy range will work with Nintendo’s upcoming fighter Super Smash Bros for Wii U.

Nintendo’s entry into the ‘interactive figure’ market comes following the success of Activision’s Skylander series and Disney’s Infinty range — both of which sell toys in a similar price range, give or take a few pounds.

The first Amiibo figures will be released in November.
