The ever popular Animal Crossing x Sanrio amiibo cards that were released back in 2016 in Japan and Europe will finally be re-released and made available in the US this Friday. To finally add these six cards to your amiibo collection and access their in-game bonus content for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you’ll be heading to one specific retailer – Target.

Initially mentioned during the announcement of the cards’ re-release, the “Animal Crossing Sanrio Collaboration Pack” will only be available from Target, specifically Target.com. The retailer went on to add a caveat for this amiibo release in its Weekly Ad, specifically that it’ll be “[a]vailable via Order Pickup or Drive Up only. Quantities limited; no rain checks.” Target then added more details on its site’s main video game page: “Only at Target. Only available 8am CT on Friday, 3/26 with Order Pickup or Drive Up. Limit 2 per guest.”

 

 

So, in an effort to not have a large gathering of amiibo hunters swarm the Electronics department, you’ll want to set an alarm and order the cards via Target’s site or app at 6 a.m. PT | 8 a.m. CT. Currently, Target has not yet published the card pack’s page listing, but we’ll be watching for its arrival this Friday and will be tweeting out the direct link on our Twitter accounts, @NinWire and @AmiiboNews.

    It turns out that the advertisement was wrong about it being online only. I was able to go to my Target in Florida and directly purchase it without buying online first (it was sold out online two minutes into it opening). The guy in electronics who sold it to me was aware that people would be asking about it, and knew that the limit was two without checking the computer (he asked me if I wanted one or two). So they were told in advance to expect people to come in to buy it.

    Target dropped the ball on this one and my local ones decided to sell it IN STORE only and left nothing for the online purchasing. I asked each one of them and that was their reply. They had lines at the door at 8am and sold it out in seconds in store. This was bogus for Target to do that when it specifically said ONLINE only and I was up at 5am refreshing constantly and it was showing sold out even at that time! Target is full of crap and they should be ashamed of themselves.
