During its most recent Nintendo Direct broadcast Nintendo confirmed more Super Smash Bros. amiibo toys that are due in the coming months. It also confirmed a 29th May release date for wave 4, which will have grabbed the interest of keen collectors. Of course, getting hold of one of these at the right price from a retailer is a challenge, so ahead of pre-orders launching we've compiled the following information from press releases, with a notable hat-tip to amiibo Inquirer for extra information.
In case you'd forgotten, wave 4 consists of Charizard, Pac-Man, Wario, Jigglypuff, Greninja, Robin, Lucina and Ness - all are due on 29th May in North America. There are key things to know, however.
Three retailers have confirmed amiibo toys exclusive to their stores and websites, these are:
- GameStop - Ness
- Toys 'R' Us - Greninja
- Target - Jigglypuff
Pre-order Opening Times
These retailers are all in different positions in terms of when they're opening pre-orders. Details below:
GameStop - Opening pre-orders at noon Pacific / 3pm Eastern today (2nd April)
Toys 'R' Us - Opening pre-orders on 3rd April; we suggest checking at 9pm Pacific (2nd April) / midnight Eastern. Also running a buy one get 40% off another on all amiibo that aren't part of the new wave.
Target - Unfortunately, this one's typically messy. The link we've given here shows a pre-order button, but attempts to pre-order fail with one of two error messages.
