The most popular Nintendo Amiibo card in the United States
Posted On July 2, 2021
Sanrio amibo cards are a popular way for people to collect Nintendo characters, so it only makes sense that the company would have its own line of cards.
According to a new survey conducted by the Wall Street Journal, the company has nearly 10 million Amiibos in circulation.
Sanrio’s cards have been popular among young people since their release last year, with more than 40 percent of adults between the ages of 18 and 29 having a Sanrio Amiiba card in their possession.
However, the survey found that a majority of these people also have at least one other Sanrio card in collection, such as one in their smartphone.
The poll, conducted by research firm Pivotal Research, also found that while Amiibeas have become more popular in recent years, there are still many people who don’t own them.
For example, only 10 percent of those surveyed have at most two Amiabeas.
This is a surprising finding given that many Amiabs were only released in Japan, with the company’s original Amiabes released in North America.
It’s unclear why this percentage of people who have no other Amiibu cards is so high, as it may be due to the popularity of the cards among older, less-engaged millennials.
What’s more, Sanrio isn’t the only company offering a Sanio Amiaba card, with another popular company, Niconico, also offering a similar product, although the company does offer more affordable versions of the product.
