Super Smash Bros


 

It’s a good time to be an amiibo collector. With Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on the horizon, Nintendo has just announced three brand new amiibo figurines and a massive reprinting of many of the original, now hard-to-find amiibo.

The three new amiibo consist of Ridley from the Metroid series, Wolf from Star Fox, and the Inkling Girl from the first Splatoon. While this is the first time Ridley and Wolf have appeared in amiibo form, it’s Inkling Girl’s second appearance (not counting recolors). While she wears the same outfit and sports the same colors, she’s in a different pose and has a slightly updated model.

Each of these new figurines will cost $15.99 and will release on December 7th, the same day as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

In addition to the new amiibo, Nintendo will rerelease a huge backlog of other amiibo with characters that appear in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. In Japan, every single figure will be reprinted, though it isn’t clear if North America will get the same deal. Nintendo said that “many” will arrive, which could mean all of them, or could mean that a few will be left out.

These older figures will sell for $12.99, their original price. While, again, we don’t know much about the North American printing, in Japan these amiibo will release in two waves. The first wave will be out on December 7th, the same as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, while the second wave is set to release in mid-January 2019. This is likely due to the sheer volume of amiibo that are compatible with the game.

We’ll keep an eye out for any new amiibo Nintendo decides to release, as well as more updates on the huge wave of reprints heading our way.
