Dark Pit amiibo to Release on July 31; Coming Exclusively to Best Buy Retail Stores

on July 2, 2015 11:25 AM

Since their launch late last year, Nintendo’s line of amiibo figurines have been quite popular, to say the least: with retailer-exclusive figurines and some proving incredibly difficult to find, retailer has scored another exclusive amiibo figurine coming later this month.

Best Buy announced through its corporate website that the Dark Pit amiibo figurine will be coming exclusively to Best Buy retail stores on July 31st, 2015. The figurine is based on the Dark Pit character originally introduced in 2012’s Kid Icarus: Uprising, and who also appeared in last year’s Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/Wii U.

While other outlets like Amazon have offered more manageable means for collectors and amiibo hunters to grab figurines, Best Buy announced that no pre-orders will be available for the Dark Pit figurine ahead of its release on July 31st. Dark Pit amiibo figurines will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis with one figurine available to purchase per customer.
