With Super Smash Bros. Ultimate just around the corner, now's probably a good time to make sure you're all kitted out with every single amiibo you're hoping to secure for your collection. While getting your hands on your favourite is nowhere near as difficult as it used to be in the early days, some older figures are still pretty tricky to come by, but it would appear that Nintendo is preparing to fix that problem as we speak.
A new batch of child safety certificates has popped up over the last few months for older amiibo figures, with the latest set arriving just last week. While we wouldn't usually be particularly interested in Nintendo's day-to-day paperwork, these certificates reveal that a large number of the Super Smash Bros. collection figures have entered new manufacturing phases, signalling re-runs for each one in turn.
Interestingly, some of the figures are a little more common than others, perhaps meaning that generic restocks were needed anyway, but some - such as Cloud Player 2 - aren't as easy to find brand new from stores these days.
Going back through certificates for just the last couple of months reveals re-runs for the following (note that the months mentioned below indicate when the figures entered their latest manufacturing stages - at present, we don't know when these new batches will invade stores):
Little Mac, Bowser, Rosalina & Luma, Shulk, Meta Knight, Wario, Roy, and Cloud Player 2, Lucina, Robin, Ike, Mewtwo, Greninja, Cloud, Ganondorf,
Sonic, Sheik, Captain Falcon, Wii Fit Trainer, Marth, Jigglypuff, Charizard, Lucario, Zelda
Of course, we can also look forward to the brand new amiibo figures coming courtesy of the new fighters introduced to the series. We've gathered a handy list of links for some of these - such as Ridley, Wolf, King K. Rool, and more - in this amiibo buyers guide.
