We're giving away an amiibo every week of summer! We're making up for a missed week, so welcome to Week 6 and 7: Ryu and Inkling Boy! Update: Congratulations to the winners!

Nintendo keeps releasing amiibo, but you don't have to break open your wallet to get your hands on them. Why not win a free amiibo figure from Nintendo World Report? We'll be giving them away all summer long!

Every week we'll run a different contest for a different Amiibo prize. It might be a caption contest. You might need to answer trivia. Or you might need to tune into a podcast for the secret keyword for that week's random drawing! Make sure you check back each week to enter into that week's particular contest, and to get a sneak preview at the Amiibo prizes to come!

Winners of previous weeks of the NWR's Summer of Amiibo event are not eligible for subsequent prizes, with the exception of the August 25th prize which is open to everyone again, including previous winners!

We missed last week, so this week there are TWO prizes: Ryu and Inkling Boy (EU version) This week's contest: a Quiz!

Can I specify which amiibo I'm entering for? I'm interested in the Inkling Boy amiibo but not the Ryu amiibo.
