Dark Pit amiibo
You know he’s Dark Pit because he looks mad.

Get ready amiibo collectors, because one half of the two figures out in July is a retailer exclusive! Best Buy announced recently that the Dark Pit amiibo would be releasing exclusively in their stores in North America. The figure is set to release on July 31, and this time, Best Buy is not setting up any pre-orders for these highly sought-after collectibles, nor are they having any online quantities. The PR statement issued by Best Buy suggests that those wanting the figures should get to their local stores early on the morning of July 31, since there will apparently be limited quantities of the figure and they will be distributed out on a first come, first served basis. Fortunately, the chain is limiting the figures to one per customer, yet there is no word on just how “limited” the amount will be per store.

The Dark Pit amiibo is compatible with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U as well as Super Smash Bros. for 3DS for those who own New Nintendo 3DS XLs. There is no word yet on when the Paluntena amiibo will be released in July. It seems very possible that it, too, will be a retailer exclusive, though we will be sure to let you know the details about that release when it arrives. In the meantime, better set the alarms bright and early on July 31 so you can be sure to get a Dark Pit amiibo while they last.
