Dark Samus and Richter Amiibo Set to Arrive in January
Meanwhile, the Simon Belmont, Chrom, and Incineroar Amiibo will drop on November 15.
Following this morning’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate stream which showed off the game’s latest DLC fighter, Terry Bogard, in greater detail, Nintendo also revealed when some of the upcoming Smash series of Amiibo figures will be releasing.
Over on Twitter, Nintendo of America divulged that both the Dark Samus and Richter Belmont Amiibo are now slated to launch in January 2020. Previously, both figures were only slated to release broadly in 2020, so this new reveal continues to narrow the window just a bit. We’ll likely hear a more specified date as we get closer to the start of the year.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director also revealed that the release date for the latest set of Amiibo figures during today’s stream and they’ll be coming a bit earlier. Chrom, Simon Belmont, and Incineroar are all set to release next week on November 15. If you’re looking to pick them up, you should find each beginning to appear on store shelves on that date.
Personally, I think the Dark Samus Amiibo looks wonderful based on the images Nintendo has shared. The quality of Amiibo models have continued to get better and better over the years and I think that Dark Samus might be one of the most well-detailed figures we’ve seen so far. I haven’t picked up a new Amiibo in a few months now, but I might have to snag that one next year.
