Music is an integral part of the gaming experience. As with dialogue and the setting, music can help set the tone of a game. From fast-paced action to slow, deliberate contemplation, music can easily guide our feelings to make us feel what the developers want us to feel.

Last week, Nintendo officially announced the Super Mario Gold Edition Amiibo; soon after the announcement, the figure was sold out online at Walmart.

Amiibo shortages have plagued consumers since their launch. There have been countless reports of certain Amiibo being discontinued or scalped online for outrageous prices.

Nintendo hasn't really addressed the subject, aside from saying that they hadn't predicted the situation to be as bad as it is. However, in a statement released earlier today, Nintendo of Japan finally explained the reason why it's hard to get Amiibo restocked in retailers. Hit the jump to see their explanation!
