It’s been some time since we last saw the Zelda amiibo from the Super Smash Bros. line. The figure is back once again, though strangely, it’s a Walmart exclusive. If you’re interested, you can order it here.


Walmart has opened pre-orders for the Zelda: Breath of the Wild Champions amiibo. You can reserve the full set here.

We also have links to the individual amiibo:


Walmart currently has the Switch in stock. Only the gray version is available at this time. Order yours while you can here.


Update: And she’s gone – lasted much longer than Walmart’s last round of pre-orders at least!

Walmart took pre-orders for the Super NES Classic Edition for an extremely brief period this week. Now, however, it’s available once again. You can pre-order it here.

What we will say is that Walmart seems to have more pre-orders this time. The last round lasted under a minute, so this is a somewhat good sign.

Following today’s announcement, Walmart has started taking pre-orders for the Splatoon 2 Switch bundle. You can reserve the hardware here. This is the only retailer where the bundle will be sold.

A new Splatoon 2 Switch bundle is on the way to North America, Nintendo has just announced.

Walmart will be the exclusive retailer of the new package. It includes a Switch unit, download code for Splatoon 2, carrying case, and Neon Pink / Neon Green Joy-Con controllers.

The Splatoon 2 bundle launches on September 8. Pricing is set at $379.99.

Read today’s full announcement regarding the Splatoon 2 Switch bundle below.

Walmart currently has both kinds of Switch units in stock. You can place an order for the gray version here, or the neon version here. Neither may last very long, but it’s definitely worth giving a shot. 


We finally have an official understanding as to what happened with the Super NES Classic Edition pre-orders on Walmart’s site last Friday. Unfortunately, the retailer is just now sending out emails stating that reservations were open “due to a technical glitch”. It seems that all orders are being cancelled.

Here’s an excerpt from a Walmart order email we received:
