Beginning at 9AM (or one hour before your local store’s opening time) on Saturday, August 8, amiibo hunters will be able to reserve R.O.B., Mr. Game & Watch, and the Duck Hunt dog with a $5 down minimum. Pre-orders are first come, first served, one pack per customer, and quantities are expected to be limited.
