It has been a rumor for quite some time, but it looks like it is now official. Eagle-eyed employees have caught Dark Pit in the Best Buy system long before any other Wave 5 Amiibo, and without any other retailers showing any signs, speculation led to believe that the angst-filled angel would be an exclusive to the electronics retailer. Now that the figure has been posted to Best Buy’s website, it’s official that Dark Pit will be an exclusive. Currently with a date of July 31st, it is unknown if this is the official release date or simply a placeholder, but what is known is that the growing Amiibo fanbase will jump on the preorders as soon as they go live. It is currently unknown what other figures will end up being exclusive, though the Amiibo kiosks in various retailers suggests that Dr. Mario, Palutena, and Bowser Jr. will also be exclusive to retailers due to their absence from the “Coming Soon” section of the display.
