Black Friday is fast approaching and we’ve covered a number of the deals that will be available to US consumers. We have now learnt that Walmart is apparently selling The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D and Super Smash Bros on the Nintendo 3DS for $25 each. So if you’ve yet to pick up these fantastic games then be sure to pay Walmart a visit on Black Friday or visit the website.

There’s plenty of deals to be had on Black Friday and it looks as though Walmart currently has some of the best offers on so far. You can pick up a Nintendo 3DS XL with Super Mario 3D Land for $129.99, the Wii U Splatoon and Super Smash Bros pack for $249 and the Modern Colour Mario amiibo for $12.96. These specific Nintendo themed offers will go live at 6pm on Thursday November 26th.
Those of you who shop at Walmart will be pleased to know that you can once again pre-order the Animal Crossing themed amiibo three pack from the US retailer. The amiibo three pack contains K.K. Slider, Reese & Cyrus and is available for $35 including free shipping and launches on November 13th.

Popular North American retailer Walmart has apparently rebranded their dedicated Wii U section under the umbrella, Nintendo. This move has probably been done to free up store shelf space and will now include both Nintendo 3DS and Wii U titles along with the immensely popular amiibo figures. Whether this is store specific remains to be seen, but it seems possible that this will be a nationwide roll-out.
Good news for those of you who live near a Walmart as Nintendo has today confirmed that they will be holding a Super Mario Maker demo event. The event will take place on Saturday, September 12th at select Walmart stores from 1pm – 4pm (local time). It is the perfect opportunity to test out the game as you will be able to play and create levels and I would assume there would be a Nintendo representative at hand to show you the ropes. You can check to see if your store is participating, right here.
US retailer Walmart now has various Splatoon Amiibo packs available for pre-order. Due to arrive on May 29 alongside Nintendo’s upcoming colourful shooter for Wii U, Inkling Girl, Inkling Boy and a special triple pack featuring an Inkling Squid can now be pre-ordered on Walmart’s official website. But given how quickly amiibo sell, make sure you place your order as soon as possible for guaranteed delivery by ordering at the links above. Both inklings can be purchased for $12.99, while the triple pack comes in at $34.99.
As has been the case since their release, grabbing select amiibo can be particularly difficult. Yesterday, four figures from Wave 5 were available for a short period of time on the Nintendo UK store including Dark Pit, Ganondorf, Zero Suit Samus and Palutena. Let us know if you’re considering purchasing the various Splatoon amiibo in the comments below.
You may have seen that earlier today we mentioned that the Gold Mario amiibo has been delayed. The news was sent out via email to Walmart customers who had pre-ordered the figure which went from a March 20th release date to April 8th and the 16th. Thankfully it turns out that the email sent out was incorrect and the item will be shipping on time. Good news for those of you who pre-ordered.
There’s no trouble in the Mushroom Kingdom. Mario Amiibo fans will still see Gold on March 20, 2015. Walmart.com pre-order customers may have seen an incorrect availability date in their account, and we’re in the process of correcting that order information to assure fans that there are no delays.
