As if your amiibo addiction isn’t out of control enough as it is, Nintendo has officially confirmed that a gold Mario amiibo is coming next month. Available exclusively at 3,000 Wal-Mart stores beginning on March 30th, the shiny new figure releases on the same day as Mario Party 10.
With the addition of the long-rumored gold Mario, Nintendo’s famous plumber will now have three amiibo figures all his own. Along with original Mario ready to throw a fireball, there is also what Nintendo is calling a “Wave Mario” coming on March 20th. The new waving Mario features one of the character’s more iconic stances. It will be available exclusively in a special bundle along with Mario Party 10 for a limited time, but it does not appear to be locked in to any store.
Nintendo recently dropped the price of a few amiibo – Donkey Kong, Peach and Yoshi – to $9.99, down from their regular $12.99 price. This new gold-colored Mario will come with the standard $12.99 price tag. Not surprisingly, the best-selling amiibo figures are Link, Mario, Pikachu, and Kirby in the US.
