GameStop is now taking pre-orders for the new Splatoon amiibo. You can reserve the various figures here. The lineup includes the Squid Sisters, 3-pack of Inkling Girl (green), Inkling Boy (purple), and Squid (orange), as well as individual amiibo for the latter two.

GameStop has expanded its retro offerings with a trio of Nintendo systems. The retailer now has games and systems available for the Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, and GameCube. You can get a look at what’s available here.

GameStop has discounted the Xenoblade Chronicles X Special Edition. It started out at $90, but it’s down to $59 on the retailer’s website. Place an order here if interested.

Yesterday, GameStop held its quarterly financial conference call. Executive VP of business strategy Mike Hogan actually weighed in a bit on NX, and spoke about the potential sales the console could see in its first couple of years in comparison to Wii U and Wii.

Here’s what was mentioned:

Nintendo has confirmed that they will be introducing a new console in early 2017. So let’s take a look at the potential for just that one new console. Once again, we’re not projecting. We are simply looking at the potential for the new console in comparison to prior consoles.

Should the new NX perform only slightly better than the Wii U, it would generate 2.7 billion dollars in incremental sales over the first two years. Should it perform at even half of the level of the Wii, it would generate 7.5 billion units of incremental sales over that time frame. You can of course apply GameStop’s market share to estimate the impact on GameStop’s sales.

While it’s too early to offer definitive projections, we are monitoring the situation closely in terms of product availability and features, consumer awareness and purchase intent. We plan to provide updates this quarter.

Amazon and currently has the Mega Man Legacy Collection Collector’s Edition on sale. As opposed to $50, it can now be yours for only $40. That amounts to $10 (20 percent) in savings.

If you’re planning on picking up Monster Hunter Generations in July, you may want to reserve it at GameStop. The retailer will be giving out a 3DS theme to those who pre-order. This offer is valid both in-store and online.

Aside from the game itself, Nintendo and Capcom are also planning a special New 3DS XL. That can be pre-ordered at Best Buy here or GameStop here.

Update (5/17): For those in Europe, the Monster Hunter Generations New 3DS XL can now be pre-ordered on Amazon France

Original (5/12): Retailers are starting to take pre-orders for the just-announced Monster Hunter Generations New 3DS XL. GameStop is first out of the gate. You can reserve a unit from the retailer here. We’ll let you know if/when other retailers begin taking pre-orders.

GameStop’s exclusive Zelda: Skyward Sword Scervo Statue has been discounted. It can now be had for just $30. As something that started out as $125, that’s not too shabby!

Update (5/13): Now available for pre-order on Amazon Canada.

Update (5/10): Now available for pre-order on Amazon, comes with a 20 percent discount for Prime members.

Original (5/7): Minecraft: Wii U Edition launched on the Wii U eShop at the end of last year. However, a physical version is coming soon. Best Buy and GameStop have now opened pre-orders.

Based on GameStop’s listing – as well as one from GameFly – Nintendo will be publishing Minecraft: Wii U Edition at retail. In one way that makes sense, as Sony and Microsoft published the game on their respective platforms. It’ll cost $29.99 – just like the eShop version.

Thanks to Jake for the tip.

Update (5/10): This offer is now valid on GameStop’s website here. The listing says that some packs have the special Jet Mode transformation card. They do not interact with the game.


Original (4/26): We’ve been hearing rumblings of a Kirby: Planet Robobot pre-order bonus at GameStop, but a photo has now surfaced confirming the free gift. Those who reserve the game will receive a pack of 6 collectible trading cards – see the packaging above. The offer should be valid in-store, but we haven’t seen it reflected online just yet.

It’s unclear what Nintendo has planned for Kirby: Planet Robobot trading cards. Will more packs be available? Or is this just a simple pre-order bonus?
