  • 30th Anniversary Mario Classic Color

  • Olimar
  • Bowser Jr.
  • Dr. Mario
On Sept. 25, a Retro 3 Pack will launch, which includes R.O.B., Duck Hunt and Mr. Game & Watch amiibo from the Super Smash Bros. series in a single package.

Further details about availability and pre-order schedules for these figures will be announced directly from various retailers in the near future. Three figures based on Mii Fighters, which were previously announced for release in September, will now launch as a 3 pack in November. More information about launch plans for the 30thAnniversary Mario Modern Color amiibo in North America will be shared in the future.
