Shulk, Greninja, And Lucario Appear On Best Buy System

It looks as though a few amiibo which were previously retailer exclusive in the United States have now appeared on Best Buy’s computer systems. Shulk, Greninja and Lucario were previously exclusive to Toys ‘R Us and GameStop. A recent post on Reddit suggests that these specific amiibo will no longer be retailer exclusive and will be available through other stores. Guess we shall have to wait and see!

Rumor: Dark Pit Amiibo Is Not So Rare After All In The US

Today has been a bevy of amiibo news — however a reliable source to amiibo news (via Nintendo Inquirer) claims that each Best Buy in North America will have over a hundred Dark Pits. We know what you are thinking: “big claims require big evidence.” Lo and behold, the smoking gun:



The picture, which appears to be taken from a Best Buy terminal, shows 9000 amiibo are on hand within California. Meanwhile, there are only 85 (maximum) Best Buy locations within California. Doing the math, that means each Best Buy would be holding 105.88 Dark Pits (see, math is useful in the real world). There are still questions left unanswered — if this applies to California, can we expect the same amount of support across the market? That remains to be seen. However, remember you can grab the Dark Pit amiibo in the United States on July 31, only in stores.
