A press release from Nintendo has confirmed that a new, gold-colored Super Mario amiibo will be available exclusively at Wal-Mart. Arriving March 20, the same day as Mario Party 10 for the Wii U, this new addition to the amiibo lineup will be sold at 3,000 Wal-Mart stores for $12.96.
It gets even better; also confirmed in the press release is a new ‘wave’ Mario that will be bundled for a limited time with Mario Party 10.

Mario has always been golden in the minds of his fans. On March 20, Nintendo will launch the Super Mario amiibo—Gold Edition, a shiny gold-colored Mario figure that arrives on the same day as the Mario Party 10 game for the Wii U console. The Super Mario amiibo—Gold Edition will be sold exclusively at 3,000 Walmart stores in the U.S. at launch at a retail price of $12.96.

Nintendo’s amiibo are interactive toys that come to life in compatible games in different ways. This new golden figure represents the third Mario amiibo. The other two Mario amiibo are:

– The original ‘fireball’ Mario from the Super Smash Bros. series.
– A new ‘wave’ Mario from the Super Mario series available on March 20, for a limited time bundled only with Mario Party 10.

Odds are that this gold Super Mario amiibo will be tough to find. While you might not be chased by a giant boulder or have to escape on a seaplane in the process of finding one, the Staff of Ra might be the only tool to help you locate a store that has one in stock.
