We're giving away an amiibo every week of summer! Welcome to Week 9: Mii Gunner!

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, except for the special prize which will be available starting next week!)

We're almost at the end of our summer giveaways, but soon we'll announce the final giveaway amiibo prize, where even winners of past prizes can re-enter! Keep your eyes peeled!

This week's prize: Mii Gunner! (JPN version and box art, but amiibo are region free) This week's contest: a CAPTION CONTEST!

Come up with a witty caption for one of the images below (if you enter multiple captions, only the first one will be considered for judging) and NWR staff will do a blind vote on the wittiest! PLUS there'll be a bonus prize on top of that for a contestant chosen at random!

  2. Click the "Add to the discussion!" link at the bottom of this article to start a post
  3. Write down the image you're captioning (for example "Image 3")

But then also have you see me in the dress,
And be like “OMG you look so cute in my skin!”
