Super Mario amiibo Gold Edition a Walmart Exlcusive

We let you know earlier about some seemingly leaked and unconfirmed information regarding a Gold Mario amiibo at Walmart… the advertising folks were seeing around suggested it would be an exclusive to the retailer, but you never know until you hear it for sure from the company.

Nintendo of America has now gone ahead and issued a press release confirming that the toy will be exclusive to the store, and the version bundled with copies of Mario Party 10 will only available for a limited time.

“Mario has always been golden in the minds of his fans. On March 20, Nintendo will launch the Super Mario amiibo—Gold Edition, a shiny gold-colored Mario figure that arrives on the same day as the Mario Party 10 game for the Wii U console. The Super Mario amiibo—Gold Edition will be sold exclusively at 3,000 Walmart stores in the U.S. at launch at a retail price of $12.96.

Nintendo’s amiibo are interactive toys that come to life in compatible games in different ways. This new golden figure represents the third Mario amiibo. The other two Mario amiibo are:

– The original ‘fireball’ Mario from the Super Smash Bros. series.
– A new ‘wave’ Mario from the Super Mario series available on March 20, for a limited time bundled only with Mario Party 10.”

There will be 3000 stores with this gold amiibo, which—while it sounds like a lot of stores—really isn’t that many. We suspect this will turn into another highly rare item, and it should be interesting to see how its release plays out.
