As Nintendo has previously stated, every new fighter added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate receives the amiibo treatment. This extends to each DLC fighter that is eventually revealed. If you were already having nightmares about completing your Smash-themed amiibo collection - well now you'll have even more after the latest fighter announcements.
In the final Smash Direct, there were a bunch of dates locked in for the amiibo versions of previously announced fighters as well as the newly revealed ones. The current amiibo release schedule is as follows - Inkling, Ridley and Wolf will arrive this year alongside the game's release on 7th December and are available to pre-order from Nintendo's online shop right now.
Then, on 15th February 2019 - King K. Rool, Ice Climbers and Piranha Plant will be released. Other fighters arriving at some point during 2019 include Isabelle, Pichu, Ken, Young Link and Daisy. You can see all of the recently announced fighters in the gallery below:
Which of the new Smash amiibo will you be picking up? Tell us below.
Where's Snake and Simon Belmont? Those are the 2 I'm looking forward to the most.
I don't think I've bought an amiibo since 2015. Finally an incentive to get back into collecting!
I need a money tree.
I need at least Young Link for my The legend of Zelda collection.
I don't play Smash Bros.....
But i want that Pichu Amiibo as my collection.
Wait, Isabelle Amiibo again with DIFFERENT Pose ?!
The pirhanna plant looks great
I definitely have to get a Piranha Plant. One of my favorite generic enemies and a cute Amiibo. Young Link looks very nice but I already have too many LOZ Amiibo.
So missing Snake, Simon, Richter....just the Konami ones...huh
I need the Piranha Plant and Young Link.
Still waiting on the re-release of Cloud Player 2 amiibo
Between the DLC pass and these, I’m going to be more broke than I already am. 😂
The boxes look out of place compared to the usual ones though...it may be time to open my collection. :/
Great, but they really have to restock the old ones.
Give me Pokemon Trainer (both genders), then we're good.
No Snake, Simon, or Richter... Do I smell a Konami 3-pack coming?
kirby saved smash
Oof... I'm still trying to get all of the old ones, without breaking the bank. Really hoping for a reprint in the west. But some of these are gonna have to take priority though. I want that leafy boi in my collection, yesterday.
I need a bigger house
@KayFiOS Wouldn't be surprised if they do that later in 2019.
@Knuckles-Fajita Incineroar is also missing. Plus Pokemon Trainer or Ivysaur & Squirtle individually.
I’m so glad they’re spacing out the releases. I can’t handle large waves again.
@Knuckles-Fajita Looks like you were right about the reprints. Still blows my mind. Toys R Us is gone and Target doesn't even have a section for NFC toys anymore, Starlink was buried with the games. Guess Gamestop and Walmart will be overflowing.
Piranaha Plant could potentially be the best ever selling amiibo. If they make enough, which we know they never do.
King K. Rool looks big and expensive, but it works for him.
Did we really need another freakin Link? That's 12 I think. 12 different poses of Link, not counting Wolf Link b/c thats' Midna on a wolf. Kind of defeats the whole "buy 1 toy to play anywhere" amiibo logic. Twelve. That's more than Mario, and he got gold, silver and married.
Here's the really important question of the day - anybody know the answer - will Switch Smash overwrite Wii U Smash save data? Also, will our Wii U Smash amiibo data be read, a level 50 amiibo in Smash 4 is a level 50 amiibo in SSBU, or do they all start from zero?
Hopefully it's a MUCH better progression system. Every amiibo we have the kids leveled up to 50 in 4 hours. Should be at least be 20 or 30 hours for 50 levels, it was so fast it was nearly pointless.
Maybe I could get a good price for my AC:aF Isabelle on eBay from some impatient player. Hardly used.
@Ogbert Incineroar looks like it should be a big fluffy stuffed animal like Yoshi. Though I never saw him before today so maybe he isn't as furry as a tiger as he looks. My kids will want him regardless.
Man, I just started building our amiibo shelve unit, gonna have to start over me thinks.
All of them. Every single one of them.
Also, I can't help but giggle like a schoolgirl at the Piranha Plant amiibo. This is wacky.
Konami license needed for both. Maybe that's the issue ?
Welp, another Link to add to the collection.
they aren't doing Snake and the Belmonts? Odd that they weren't even given the general "2019" date the others were
Well as I have every Amiibo figure to date then I'll be getting all of them.
Man, all of these look cool. K. Rool is the priority though.
Still waiting to get a Bowser Jr. for my dad.
I'm getting most of these, except Isabelle and Daisy, as their own series Amiibo is good enough for me if not better. They'll join their partners in my 80+ Amiibo collection
Did they forget Dark Samus as well?
Who cares if they are different it's collection time. And Scalpers will be waiting for your money so don't blame others. Already got my first three preorders in with nmy GCU.
@Moroboshi876 only for SSB others unless there's inventory - they'll be only on eBay.
@rjejr who cares link will add more stuff to BoTW and be a plus in SSB so stop complaining and don't buy so the rest can buy it then.
There's no way I'm going to get all of them.
There are 76 fighters including echoes.
That's 76*$12.99/$15.99. There isn't enough money in the world for that.
@SwitchForce No problem. The ones I want and have never seen in stores at their official price are Sonic and Megaman. But they haven't restocked them south of the Pyrenées yet.
Maybe ice climbers...
Definitely Piranha Plant
Young Link is great, but I have too many Links.
Piranha Plant and the adventure part have convinced me to, once again, buy Smash — that is, not cancel my preorder.
It helps that my kids do get a kick out of it from time to time and that the college where I work is starting eSports and I have students that are on the Smash team.
Right now, I'm completely in the camp of only buying an Amiibo if I want it on a desk as a decoration somewhere. The potential for gaming has been wearing thin, though dumping objects around Link is fun sometimes and I do like that Wolf Link. Only Amiibo has kept shelf space in an armoire by the entertainment area...
Disney Infinity toys are mostly in a box, with our favorites spread out across our workspace desks. I've got Stitch, Mr. Incredible, and Sam Flynn and Quorra from Tron Legacy in my area right now.
I hope they make this Link compatible with BOTW. The prior Majora's Mask amiibo is impossible to find for a good price anymore.
I dont collect them but gotta say they are pretty nice
Probably won't get any of them but they all look great! You can see the difference in quality between now and when Amiibo were first introduced.
Finally! Pre-ordered the Ridley one straight away.
Pokémon Trainer (or Ivysaur/Squirtle)
and obviously the 5 future DLC characters.
That's 23/24 new amiibo ... my wallet aches. I also think I should grab Mii Fighters now (if they reprint them) since they are official characters now (in Sm4sh they were mostly just custom characters). So 27/28 new amiibo to go with my existing 55... I'll have to by a new shelf too...
Edit: At least it's nice of them to spread them out. Much easier to justify when I am spending "only" $30-40 at a time as opposed to thinking about the $400 this is going to cost me...
@Moroboshi876 that's the problem if they don't release then your options become limited where you can find them.
@Shadowkiller97 Just wait they are coming. I already got some of them preordered. But sounds like if your not in NA your only option is GameStop for the Loot Goblin.
@Leuke it most likely will make it work on BoTW.
@DenDen to each their own. I collect them for their value and gaming purpose and they just look Awesome.
@Leuke Not sure where you are located but in the US, Best Buy had a huge amount just gathering dust earlier this year. Not sure if it's still the case though as I haven't been by the amiibo section in awhile. Still missing the Skyward Sword and Twilight Princess Links from the Zelda set.
@Shadowkiller97 "Still missing the Skyward Sword and Twilight Princess Links from the Zelda set."
Good luck....your choices are eBay.
@Shadowkiller97 I have given up amiibo figures.
I had to quit as I have no more room for any more, but I am glad to have a complete doubled-up original print collection.
I would get the next set of figures, but the logos clash with my set above as I have all of them with the original Nintendo logo.
@rjejr, I've had to preorder the last five just to get them at Gamestop even the Walmart's where I live don't ever get them anymore, hopefully Target or Walmart will start stocking them again since the holidays are upon us .
I got a laugh outta you saying you have to redo the shelf your building , we just recently took ours down for a redo due to spacing issues. My family has turned into amiibo addicts it's like the Pokemon slogan " Gotta catch'em all.. " though I don't think we will ever get one of the very very limited edition new gold Mega Mans from the 10 that was released in Japan.
I wish they'd do more with Amiibo in other games as well. I've said for a while that a successor to the Mii Plaza in 3DS could be an Amiibo Plaza on Switch. With Amiibo serving the role that Streetpass used to.
I wish Pokemon would make use of Amiibo as well. Amiibo Pokemon cards would be awesome! Imagine if every pack of Pokemon cards had a chance to have an Amiibo Card in the "rare" slot?
The fact that the Konami characters don't have confirmed amiibo means that either Konami won't allow it or they're holding them back for a 3-pack.
@Shadowkiller97 Gah! I look when I'm there but I never find any! Bestbuy.com had them for awhile but sold out before I pulled the trigger.
That fabric texture on Ken tho. Woah.
@nukatha I know, right? The detail on these things are top-notch
@aaronsullivan No joke, I was thinking about canceling my pre-order while watching that "Spirits" section live, I still have no idea what was going on, seemed liked WAY too much for a pick up and play for fun fighting game to me. And a lot of it looked like what the amiibo were for the last game. Of course I can't b/c it's my son's Christmas present, but seriously the thought crossed my mind.
Pirana plant looks like "Chomper" from the original Plants vs Zombies. If you ever want to teach your kids how to count by 25 get the original PvZ game. It's still the best tower defense game I've ever played. Sequel not so much.
I'm really looking forward to World of Light, just hope beyond hope they don't screw it up like SSB4 on Wii U where the very first time I ever turned it out everything was done b/c despite us all having our own Wii U accounts that game shared save information across them. Hopefully they have that sorted.
amiibo = Funko Pop I ever show you the shelves I put up in my room? Has your water pistol gift on it. Still working on building my full amiibo shelves, keep getting sidetracked w/ home ownership stuff. 18 people coming for Thanksgiving, already has me worried.
Definitely want that piranha plant!
@Not_Soos @DockEllisD Yeah haven't collected since I stopped at Donkey Kong (I liked the definition in its fur) But That King K Rool cape and piranha sold it for me.
@rjejr Glass Case if you're worried someone damages the amiibo btw.
I'm getting K. Rool, the Ice Climbers, and the inevitable Simon Belmont for sure. I already have an Isabelle Amiibo, so I don't need another one.
They are. K. Rool's bloodshot eye cracks me up.
Ohhh so do I.
@Reigestugatensho But then I would be more worried about someone breaking the glass.
I've built shelves for our 100 Skylanders and 3 dozen DI characters, still need a Lego Dimensions shelf after I'm finished with amiibo. We're so not getting Starlink physical.
@Tempestryke isabelle figure posture isn't the same Amiibo but only in name.
King K Rool, PP and Ice Climbers are up on Amazon.com for preorder.
@RushDawg @Mando44646 might be something to do with negotiations with Konami. Maybe a treble pack?
