Update: Double rumor! There’s now speculation that Meta Knight will return sometime this summer at Best Buy. A corporate-level employee at the retailer has apparently said that the restock will be happening, but a date hasn’t been shared yet.

The Meta Knight amiibo appears to have been discontinued at Best Buy.

On Saturday, Best Buy listed the figure as “Active”. But today, that changed to “Deleted”. Because items tend to stay “Deleted” once they’ve reached that status, the assumption is that Meta Knight won’t be returning to Best Buy in the future.

We’ll let you know if we hear anything official about the Meta Knight amiibo going forward.

Nintendo held an event at Best Buy today to show off amiibo and some 3DS games. That wasn’t all though! Nintendo also provided a QR code to obtain a Mii on 3DS for Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma, and a couple of coupons were handed out – one to save $5 on any Wii U/3DS title, and another to save 10 percent on Wii U/3DS/Wii accessories.

We’re not entirely sure yet if the coupon only works at stores that participated in today’s event, or if it works at all Best Buy locations. If we receive a definitive answer, we’ll update this post. You can find a list of stores that were involved with the event here.

Update: Now confirmed. Actually, some stores have already received Little Mac shipments (see below).


Based on a few comments coming from Best Buy associates, new shipments of the Little Mac and Captain Falcon amiibo could be on the way. Both figures are listed as “In Transit” in Best Buy’s inventory system. A list of stores that are apparently confirmed to be receiving the amiibo can be found here.

Best Buy locations may be receiving stock as early as this week or next week. Keep your eyes peeled!


Update (3/2): Priced matched on Amazon.
