The R.O.B., Duck Hunt, and Game & Watch amiibo could be seeing their first pre-orders as early as next week. Speculation has surfaced about an event GameStop will be hosting on August 8, and an exclusive three pack containing the three figures will supposedly be offered.

Here’s the lowdown:

– Special GameStop amiibo event
– Stores are being allocated extra hours in the early morning
– The 3-pack will be a GameStop exclusive (not the individuals)
– The 3-pack will be a Retro Pack featuring R.O.B., Duck Hunt, and Mr. Game & Watch
– Each store will have roughly 30 available for pre-order
– Pre-orders will be the traditional “head in store and put $5 down” style rather than Web In Store
– If a location allows more than their allocated pre-orders, the customer will not receive their pre-order
– As of now, the 3-pack is the only pre-order officially announced internally for the 8/8 event
– As a side effect, GameStop most likely not be receiving individuals of R.O.B., Duck Hunt, or Mr. Game & Watch
– Pro members may be allowed in to stores an hour early

All of this information is unconfirmed for the time being. If we hear anything official, we’ll be sure to bring the news to you.

New PopoloCrois game in development

Return to PopoloCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale only just launched in Japan last month. Despite this, a new game in the series is seemingly in the works.

A fan in Japan picked up the strategy guide for Return to PopoloCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale, which reveals that the franchise’s next game is already being made. It’s supposed to be like the 1998 PlayStation title Poporogue. Apparently, it’s also stated in the guide: “(The next game) has many new species”.

So that’s some interesting news. We don’t know if the new game will be on a Nintendo platform, but given how A Story of Seasons Fairytale is for 3DS, there’s a decent shot of it happening.
