If you are an amiibo hunter then you may want to pay your local GameStop store a visit on August 8th. Reddit amiibo moderator FlapSnapple is reporting that the popular retailer will be holding a special amiibo event and they will be stocking a special 3-Pack. The 3-Pack will be a exclusive retro themed pack which includes R.O.B., Duck Hunt, and Mr. Game & Watch. Each of the stores will have 30 of these available for pre-order. You can read the full details, below.
- GameStop’s 8/8 event will be amiibo related.
- GameStop will indeed be getting a 3-Pack!
- The 3-Pack will be a GameStop exclusive. (Not the individuals)
- The 3-Pack will be a Retro Pack featuring R.O.B., Duck Hunt, and Mr. Game & Watch.
- Each store will have approximately 30 available for preorder.
- Preorders will be the traditional “head in store and put $5 down” style and NOT utilize Web In Store.
- If a location allows more than their allocated preorders, the customer will simply not receive their pre-order. No exceptions.
- As of now, the 3-pack is the only pre-order officially announced internally for the 8/8 event.
- As a side effect, GameStop most likely not be reeciving individuals of R.O.B., Duck Hunt, or Mr. Game & Watch.
- There is a rumor that Pro members will be allowed in to stores an hour early. I am unable to confirm this at this time.
