super-mario-mario-amiibo-pack-shotThe one figure in the new Super Mario line of amiibo figures that is not available for individual purchase right now is the Mario figure. He is only currently available in the bundle for Mario Party 10. That will change in less than two weeks when, according to Nintendo of Canada the figure will go on sale beginning April 3rd.

This news appears to be confirmed by Nintendo of America. So, good news for anyone wanting to get that figure without having to buy a copy of the game.
