Nintendo is truly trying everything they can to make Amiibo a true part of the Nintendo lineup. From the original Smash Bros. Amiibos (that are still coming out), to the Super Mario Amiibos (which are selling well), and the newest addition, the Splatoon Amiibos (which will launch alongside the game), Nintendo is making this something special and not just a one off deal. So leave it to Nintendo to up the ante, as now they’re releasing a very special Amiibo that has been on many a gamers watch lists for a while: a special Silver Mario Amiibo.
That’s right, it’s Mario, and it is silver. According to Nintendo via a press release, the Mario – Silver Edition Amiibo figure will be available May 29 at major retailers nationwide and their respective online destinations at a suggested retail price of $12.99. At the very least, it’s not more expensive, however, given how well most of the Amiibos are doing, it’s a safe bet that they’ll sell out really quickly.
Oh, and this isn’t just a showpiece Amiibo. It’s a full on gaming device that you can use to assist Mario in his games, or use in Smash Bros. to train your own fighter. All that functionality is there, so will you be getting the Silver Mario Amiibo? Let us know!
