It looks like Wal-mart made a mistake in sending out emails claiming the gold Mario Amiibo had been delayed.
News of this comes from Amiibo News, who received a statement from Wal-mart stating that the figure was still on track for a March 20th release.
“There’s no trouble in the Mushroom Kingdom. Mario Amiibo fans will still see Gold on March 20, 2015. Walmart.com pre-order customers may have seen an incorrect availability date in their account, and we’re in the process of correcting that order information to assure fans that there are no delays.”
The gold Mario Amiibo is a Wal-mart exclusive and will launch alongside Mario Party 10 and the other Super Mario Amiibo figures. The gold figure was leaked alongside a silver one, but there’s no word on when a silver Mario Amiibo will launch.
