Once this news got out, rumors surfaced that Wave 3 of Nintendo’s amiibo distribution would be delayed past February. While that news is still rumor, an official Toys R Us representative contacted us here at Wii U Daily to confirm that the issue experienced earlier today was not a stock issue on Nintendo’s end, but a technical issue experienced by Toys R Us themselves.
Today many Nintendo fans woke up to unhappy emails from Toys R Us confirming the cancellation of pre-ordered amiibos, including their exclusive Lucario amiibo. Many people were understandably upset and took to customer support, asking when they would be able to re-pre-order their amiibos. The customer support response that initially circled the web was that an between Toys R Us and Nintendo had occurred, resulting in a delay for stock.
