For the longest time we though the Wave 5a amiibo were both going to be retailer exclusives, with Dark Pit confirmed a couple weeks ago as being in-store only. Palutena was sounding more and more like a non-retailer exclusive in recent weeks though, but that is definitely not the case as it was revealed today she will be exclusive to Amazon.
This announcement was the one teased by AmazonJosh for the last few days on Reddit and now the official AmazonGames Twitter account has revealed the big news.
Palutena is not up for pre-order yet, but the following is listed on Amazon that reveals her release date.
Palutena is calling Amazon her home! Sign up above to be emailed with more information about how to order as we get closer to the July 24th release. Emails will go out to customers on July 22nd.
The wording of this is odd, with it saying emails will go out to customers on July 22. You can request to know more details on her release, but does that mean she won’t actually go up for order until July 24 and that email will only tell us how they will run everything that day?
With Palutena being exclusive to Amazon and the amiibo supply issue seemingly improving, hopefully she will be more readily available on that day so that people won’t get screwed out of this one, especially with it being online only through Amazon. Make sure to stay tuned to AOTF for more details as soon as Amazon gives them.
