It’s time for Amiibo hunters to give even more hard-earned money to Nintendo. Best Buy and Walmart posted pre-order links for the Famicom version of R.O.B. earlier this morning.

Identical in functionality to the American-themed R.O.B., the only notable differences between the two are within the color schemes. While the U.S. version of R.O.B. boasts a black and gray color scheme, the Japanese version will showcase red and white.

Even if the changes between the two are merely cosmetic in nature, Amiibo completionists will be ordering it regardless.

Do you plan on picking up the Famicom-inspired R.O.B. Amiibo? Let us know in the comments below.

The pre-order links can be found below:
