Best Buy

On one of its Twitter accounts, Best Buy announced a new amiibo exclusive for Canada. The Animal Crossing figure Lottie will only be sold at this retailer in the country. Pre-orders are live here.

Will Lottie be exclusive to Best Buy in the United States as well? Only time will tell!


Update 3: Bumped to the top again. You can now have Falco shipped to your home.

Update 2: Bumped to the top. Pre-orders are now officially open, though note that you can only order one from your local store.

Update: This is now confirmed. You will be able to pre-order Falco here (should be live soon).

Best Buy appears to have snagged yet another exclusive amiibo. By searching for Falco on the store’s website, you’ll notice that an image shows saying that this figure is only available from the retailer.

We haven’t received an official confirmation about this, so it’s possible that the listing was made an error. That being said, it does currently look like you’ll only be able to purchase the Falco amiibo from Best Buy if you’re in the United States.


Another Wii U game is on sale over at Amazon and Best Buy. Both retailers have Mario Party 10 for $34.99, which is $15 lower than the original asking price. Like with Splatoon, this price should be valid through Saturday.

Splatoon has received a discount over on Amazon and Best Buy. Both retailers currently have the game available for $45 rather than $60. This should be valid for the next week, or until product runs out.

The Xenoblade Chronicles X Special Edition can now be ordered on Best Buy. Get yours here. Best Buy seems to be charging for shipping, but I imagine that’ll be corrected before release.

Update: These are all now price matched on Amazon (Smash Bros. Wii U is actually a bit less). However, some are for Prime members only. Also, some items are temporarily out of stock, but can still be ordered.

Best Buy is one of the last remaining retailers to have put up its product link for the Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer New 3DS bundle. You can order it here.

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer New 3DS was recently removed from GameStop’s website, likely due to low stock. However, it’s still available through Amazon.
