Rumors of a "Retro Three Pack" have begun to swirl.
Those who want to get R.O.B, Mr. Game and Watch or the Duck Hunt Duo from GameStop should make ready for an early start next Saturday.
According to sources posted to Reddit, GameStop stores will be holding the preorder event for the remaining Wave 5 Amiibo (Zero Suit Samus, Ganondorf, R.O.B, Mr. Game and Watch, Duck Hunt Duo, Captain Olimar, Bowser Jr, Dr Mario, Mii Gunner/Brawler/Swordfighter) on August 8, with 30 of each available. GameStop will apparently be taking preorders for a "Retro 3-Pack" featuring R.O.B, Mr Game and Watch and the Duck Hunt Duo.
Although it isn't known if any of this group of Amiibo will be exclusive, it appears the 3 pack will be a GameStop only offer in lieu of offering the Amiibo individually. Unlike Wave 4 preorders, which infamously crashed the GameStop web preordering system, the Amiibo this time will require the traditional $5 deposit and in store pickup on release day.
In addition, some stores have confirmed that Pro-level members of GameStop's Power Up Rewards program will be allowed to enter early. Not all stores would be required to participate, so consult your local retailer before proceeding.
