Golden Mario Amiibo Officially Announced, U.S./Walmart Exclusive
Following up from the last Golden Mario Amiibo article I wrote for you guys, Nintendo has officially announced the release of the “Golden Edition of the Mario Amiibo Toy” on Wednesday to be released this March 10th alongside Mario Party 10 rather than being bundled together as speculated from past post. It’ll be available ONLY in the U.S. and will be sold exclusively at Walmart Retail Stores for $13. Not bad on the price, Nintendo, not bad at all.
This will be the 3rd Mario Amiibo to appear in the circuit as the other two sport the Fireball Stance from the Amiibo Smash Line and the new Wave Stance from the forth-coming Super Mario Amiibo series that will launch on the 20th of March with Mario Party 10 as well.
If you do plan on purchasing the Mario Party 10 game along with the new Golden Mario Amiibo, you’ll be glad to know that you’ll be able to use it in an exclusive Amiibo game on Mario Party 10 called “Amiibo Party Mode”. There are currently only a select few of Amiibos that are compatible with this mode of play. Check this link here for the list of which Amiibos are compatible at the moment. Though not all of the Amiibos are compatible at the moment, hopefully through time and future updates, they’ll be able to add all Amiibos to the list so that no one’s favorite Amiibo is left out of the party.
So now that it’s official, are you guys excited for the new Walmart Exclusive Golden Mario Amiibo? Do you plan to purchase just the Amiibo or will you purchase the game along with it to try and take advantage of the Amiibo Party Mode?
