Two amiibo pre-orders are now up on Best Buy. You can reserve Ryu here and Famicom R.O.B. here. Roy isn’t up, so he might be a GameStop exclusive as rumored a few months ago.

Update 3 (1/18): Bumped to the top yet again. Finally available for in-store pickup!

Update 2 (1/15): Bumped to the top. This is now officially live on Best Buy for shipping. Still no in-store pickup.

Update: Best Buy’s page may not have fully updated yet. It’s currently in-store pickup only, and users are unable to select a local Best Buy. Post will be updated again when it’s up properly.

Yesterday, GameStop started taking pre-orders for the New 3DS Pokemon 20th Anniversary Edition. Reservations are now up on Best Buy as well. To pre-order a system, head on over here.

During E3, Best Buy ran a special Nintendo pre-order offer. By reserving two select games, consumers could receive a Super Mario Maker button set. A lot of folks have been wondering about what was happening with the promo, and today there’s finally been some movement.

Best Buy has started sending out emails to eligible customers about the promotion. You should be receiving a unique code that can be used to obtain the 7-button set for free. It can be used through the end of January 2016.


If you missed out on the promotion, you can try your luck on Best Buy’s site here. You won’t get the button set for free, however, as there’s a $75 asking price otherwise.
