The curious case of Amiibo exclusivity continues! But first, an update on a story we did yesterday.
It was originally reported that the Jigglypuff Amiibo would be exclusive to Target, but only through their online store. Meaning the physical copies wouldn’t be arriving in the store itself. This announcement (thanks to the power of the internet) made the Amiibo sell out on Target.com within a few hours.
Well, now a Target spokesperson has come forward to clear up a bit of confusion. Though Jigglypuff will remain a Target exclusive, it will be available in the store on May 29th along with (most likely) the rest of the Wave 4 Amiibo’s. It will also continue to sell online.
But Jigglypuff isn’t the only exclusive Amiibo in Wave 4. No,no, no. The Greninja Amiibo is also getting a singular resting place. Starting today, you’ll be able to pre-order the Greninja Amiibo at Toys ‘R Us, alongside all the other Wave 4 Amiibos that aren’t exclusive to other stores.
In case you forgot, Wave 4 will consist of Lucina, Robin, Wario, Ness (who is actually exclusive to Gamestop), Pac-Man and the aforementioned Jigglypuff and Greninja.
No doubt many of these will sell out online as the days draw closer to their release. The only question will be if Nintendo will be able to keep stock up on this wave better than they have with others.
