When Nintendo finally unveiled Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Switch during its special E3 2018 Direct, it didn't hold back. The entire cast in the history of series was confirmed for the line-up, with both classics and fan-favourites alike returning. 

Now that the dust has settled, Nintendo's Japanese website has unsurprisingly revealed Ridley, Daisy, and Inkling Girl won't be the only characters receiving the amiibo makeover, with the veteran characters Ice Climbers and Pichu also locked in for the same treatment.

With confirmation all existing Smash amiibo will be compatible with Ultimate, it seems as if the additional classic fighters will be added to the amiibo line over time. So, if you're hoping for the likes of Snake from Metal Gear Solid or Wolf from Star Fox, this is a positive development.
