Damn missed both at target and BB today. Hopefully I can get in at amazon, Walmart, or GameStop.

Just got the Gamestop order. Better than nothing but will obviously continue to look at other places. That $5 shipping fee is dumb

Agreed, I got free shipping ordering it with the special edition, still don't trust GameStop for something potentially limited like this though.

Did amazon go live? I see the page for it but says it's out of stock.

I was refreshing Amazon for like over an hour and the status of both the SE and the amiibo would constantly swap between "currently unavailable" and "temporarily out of stock." It looks like either it hasn't gone live yet, or the army of bots got to the backdoor and snatched all the copies before it could go live, hence the constant status change.

Yeah that's what I'm afraid happened.

It is, but you'll need to pay in full + shipping (unless you preorder the standard game.. or two packs...)

I pre-ordered one amiibo in store and didn’t bother to add anything else to the online cart and got charged shipping. D’oh!

Wonder if the single pack Samus/E.M.M.I. amiibos will be released in the US as well? (only see a double pack so far)

 

Any listings for those yet?

If I had to wager, I'm doubtful the single pack amiibos will come West.  For the Metroid: Samus Returns 3DS release, the US only ever got the Samus/Metroid dual pack amiibo, while Japan got the single pack options, as well.  I can't imagine that NOA would be managing things much differently only a few years later.

I was able to get a web in store order for the metroid special edition game. Now if only I could get the amiibo. One store denied me completely yesterday, today another said to come in and they have them but when I got there they couldn't do it. The button said they could order but showed 0 available :( why does nintendo make it so hard?

One thing that seems to be different is that the Samus/Metroid dual pack amiibo was in stock long enough for me to pre-order it...

Did you place the Web In Store order today or earlier in the week?

I did the web in store order for the special edition this morning right after they opened.

Thanks so much for the info!  I was able to preorder on my way home from work.  It took calls to three stores before I found an employee that either knew how to do it or cared enough.  Glad to have a pre-order in.

I need to check my local store for a dread amiibo order... or else I'll probably try to just sell the rest I have since my collection will be incomplete. And I'll never pay scalper price.

Maybe check local game chains? I really want this edition and Amiibos (I love Metroid) but foolish me I was getting kids food and taking them to swim lessons when they disappeared the first day. The dudes at my GameStop usually secure in-store Nintendo stuff for themselves so I didn’t bother. I was in a local store today (8 stores in Iowa) and just on a whim asked if they were taking reserves on the items. He said they were allocated some and got me a preorder. Super happy not to have to screw around when this launches…
