Nintendo Confirms Silver Mario Amiibo For North America, Launches May 29th

Following weeks of rumors, retail listings, and even a prototype hitting eBay, Nintendo has at last confirmed the existence of the Silver Mario amiibo. Following on the heels of the Gold Mario back in March, this variant will arrive in North America on May 29th for $12.99. Nintendo says it will be sold at a variety of retailers, which could include GameStop, Toys R Us, Best Buy and Target based on previous leaks.

The Silver Mario amiibo is, of course, compatible with any game that uses Mario amiibo functionality. The previous Gold Mario had a special unlock in Mario Party 10, so the silver version may do the same.

If you’re in the neighborhood for the Silver Mario figure, know that it launches alongside Wave 4 of the Smash Bros. line, the game Splatoon and its own accompanying amiibo set. May 29th looks to be a very expensive day for hardcore Nintendo fans. Let us know if you’ll be picking up the Silver Mario amiibo in the comments.
