Nintendo is trying to make our shelves collapse.
It looks like all five of the newly announced characters from this morning’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Nintendo Direct will be receiving their own Amiibo.
Confirmed via Nintendo of Europe’s official Twitter account, both the fighters that are built from the ground-up like Simon Belmont and King K. Rool will get their figures, as well as the three echo characters announced, Richter Belmont, Chrom and Dark Samus. No images for these Amiibo have been released.
Other Smash Bros. Ultimate characters are getting their own Amiibo as well, including Ridley, Wolf and the Inklings, which are all coming on December 7, alongside the game itself. There’s no word on if the five new Amiibo are coming on the release date or not, simply that they’re coming “in the future,” but there are plenty of other Smash Bros. Ultimate Amiibo without release dates as well, like Pichu and Ice Climbers.
Other big announcements came from the Direct, like Smash Bros. Ultimate getting 103 stages, and dozens of new assist trophies and Pokemon that are coming along with them. We’ve also got you covered with our guide of everything you need to play Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, including GameCube controllers, its adaptor for the Switch, and the bundle that comes with both.
