Update: The article incorrectly said Black Friday. It’s actually this Friday!
Nintendo recently revealed a number of deals that stores in the United States will be promoting during Black Friday. The official Nintendo Happy Holiday site has also revealed that Toys R Us will be running a buy one get one 40 percent off on all Wii U, Wii and Nintendo 3DS software. So if there’s a particular game that you’ve had your eye on then now’s the time to get it and grab an additional one while you were at it. This applies to all Nintendo software.

Thanks to MasterPikachu6 for the tip.
The latest edition of the Toys R Us catalogue apparently says that the highly sought after Villager amiibo will be back in stock at the retailer on November 8th. This is great news for collectors as the Villager amiibo is currently going for inflated prices on Amazon. The news is announced on page eighty eight of the recent Toys R Us catalogue.
After the recent news of the Mii Fighter amiibo being exclusive to Toys R Us in North America, the retailer has taken to Twitter to tease on another potential exclusive of theirs – the Mega Yarn Yoshi amiibo. Also in the picture included in the Tweet is the silhouette of the Villager amiibo, which hints towards a potential restock of this amiibo exclusively in their stores. At the moment, this is all the information the retailer has divulged, but we will keep you posted with any updates.

This is only a rumour at present but it would seem as though the Mii Fighter amiibo collection of figurines could well be exclusive to Toys R Us. Toys for Games recently tweeted an image showing the figures with a Toys R Us exclusive logo over them. As I said before it’s only a rumour at present, but it doesn’t sound too far fetched going by other amiibo. Guess we shall have to wait and see!
It’s fitting that Bowser Jr. will be an exclusive to the store with the slogan “where a kid can be a kid.” The amiibo of the koopa kid and his flying clown car will be exclusively available at Toys R Us on Sept. 11 to US customers, the company announced Wednesday on Twitter. Bowser Jr. will be only available for purchase in-store only and while supplies last.
Now this is a good incentive to pre-order Splatoon in the United States. If you decide to pre-order the super colourful shooter at Toys R Us then you can grab an amiibo of your choice for only $5. Who knows what amiibo will be in stock at your local store? But if you’re after a certain one then you had better get down there rather quickly.
Thanks, paidenthusiast and MasterPikachu6
Due to the popular demand of Greninja amiibo pre-orders online at Toys R Us, they organised an in-store pre-order event ahead of the amiibo release on May 29th. However, it looks like some stores– like Fort Myers, Florida– are taking advantage of the popularity, and allowing early entry to those willing to apply for a credit card. Tsk, tsk. This means that those under age or who already have a credit card are going to miss out on the chance to pre-order amiibo, because they have to wait until the actual event opening time.
It seems the story is different across different stores, some stores handed out pre-order tickets so you still had as much chance of getting your pre-order, you just had to wait longer. But some stores seem to have abandoned the tickets, resulting in an unfair system. Maybe they weren’t quite expecting the avid fans and giant queues, and are still trying to learn what works. But after already messing up the online pre-order by allowing some people to order from midnight and not others, looks like amiibo hunters aren’t very happy with Toys R Us.
