Raru, a retailer in South Africa, has listed the Mewtwo amiibo for release on October 23. Nintendo has naturally not confirmed such a date.

We tend to be cautious when it comes to retailer listings, but Raru’s listing is interesting. You may recall that they leaked the Splatoon amiibo and game’s launch date before the information was announced. This doesn’t necessarily confirm that the Mewtwo date is accurate, but it may be worth paying attention to.

Consumers can begin placing orders for Palutena at 5 PM ET / 2 PM PT this Friday. There will be a limit of 1-per customer. Additionally, 1-Click Ordering will be disabled.

Head past the break to read up on Amazon’s full email that was just sent out to customers. We’ll have another reminder on Friday, but you’ll want to keep track of this page.

Originally, the Dark Pit amiibo was thought to be a Best Buy exclusive in Canada. There’s been talk since then that this wouldn’t be the case, but it wasn’t until today that we received concrete information.

Walmart is now listing the Dark Pit amiibo on its Canadian website. While the listing isn’t live yet, this means that Best Buy won’t be the only retailer in the country to be selling the figure. That’s good news for amiibo fans in Canada!
