Fifth amiibo Wave Dated
"Three of them are GameStop-exclusive"
Nintendo has dated the next wave of amiibo figures for North America, so mark your calendars for next month... and this Saturday.
On September 11th, the same day as Super Mario Maker
, expect the fifth wave of Smash Bros. figures: Ganondorf, Dr. Mario, Olimar, Bowser Jr. and Zero Suit Samus. Not only are those hitting that day, but also the 30th anniversary Mario amiibo. Only the “classic” red/brown paintjob has been confirmed, but the red/blue “modern” version is nowhere to be seen. In Europe, it was bundled with Super Mario Maker
in a limited edition, so we might see that.
On September 25th however, the last half of the Smash wave releases, and it’ll only be in a “retro” three pack: Mr. Game & Watch, R.O.B. and Duck Hunt. This three pack is a GameStop exclusive, and will be reservable this Saturday. They will start preorders at 9AM, and all you need to do is drop a $5 deposit towards the $35 three-pack. You can then pick it up whenever you want on September 25th.
We’re finally winding down on the Smash amiibo figures. All that’s left is Falco, the three Mii variants that are now delayed to November and the DLC characters.
