The Gold and Silver Mario Amiibos will be retailer exclusives in Australia
Earlier this week, the Silver Mario Amiibo was confirmed for release in the US, following a sell-out success of the Gold version. Well, the latest news now is that the Silver and Gold versions will be released in Australia, with retailer exclusivity, of course.
The Silver Mario Amiibo is an EB Games exclusive due to be released on May 30, and has, unsurprisingly, sold out within less than twelve hours of the announcement. The Gold Mario Amiibo will be exclusive to Target stores, and by all reports will be for in-store purchase only, so no pre-ordering or hoping to snipe online. If you want one, you’ll have to camp out at your local Target store and hope for the best.
I’m not personally a big Mario fan, but I do like limited edition swag, and so I managed to pick up a Silver Mario Amiibo an hour or so after the announcement. However, I’m not sure if I’m keen enough to emerge from my bedchambers and trek into town for the Gold one. We’ll see.
