As one of the most anticipated Switch titles for the year, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is bringing players a complete package of almost everything that the series has offered yet over the past twenty years, and alongside some exciting new character reveals, we’ll also be getting some new amiibo figurines to go along with them.
Following today’s Nintendo Direct dedicated to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Nintendo announced that a new line of amiibo figurines will be coming for the five new characters that were announced for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: Castlevania‘s Simon Belmont and his Echo Fighter Richter, Donkey Kong Country‘s King K. Rool, and the game’s two new Echo Fighters, Metroid‘s Dark Samus and Fire Emblem‘s Chrom.
No specific details or images were released just yet of what the new figurines will look like, other than Nintendo stating that they will release “in the future,” so while we don’t have an exact timeframe yet for when they’ll be in stores, fans of these long-awaited characters will at least get their chance to have them in physical, miniature form.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will release for Nintendo Switch on December 7th, 2018. If you have yet to pick up a copy of the game, you can head over to Amazon and pre-order the game right now before its release this holiday season.
