UPDATE: We’ve received information that Palutena is, indeed, a retail exclusive for Amazon. A placeholder page on Amazon is available here. It is not currently available for purchase, but check back at a later date to buy the amiibo. We’ll keep you posted with the latest information about ordering.

We apologize for the information provided earlier!


REPORT: According to a reliable source within the community, a Nintendo representative has confirmed that the Palutena amiibo will not be a retailer exclusive, as many amiibo collectors have speculated and feared. Unlike Dark Pit, which is exclusive to Best Buy stores, Palutena will be available at all major retailers. The release date of Dark Pit was already confirmed for July 31st, and it appears as though Palutena will be released that very same day as well.

There were some interesting words when describing the release of Palutena as well, as a comparison to Silver Mario was made. The context of the comparison wasn’t clear, as it could either mean the amiibo will be sold everywhere despite long-running rumors of a retailer exclusive, or possibly that the amiibo could more common on release day than collectors believe. Either way, now is the time to start formulating your hunting plans for the last day of July.
