Update #2 [Sun 9th Oct, 2022 17:55 BST]: It seems Nintendo uploaded a new amiibo certificate on 5th October - titled "amiibo".

The date of manufacture is August 2022 and September 2022. As noted by Nintendo Wire, the time between certificate uploads and the production date is around two to three months on average. If this is linked to the upcoming Smash amiibo, it means we could potentially see at least one of them by December.

Original [Tue 4th Oct, 2022 03:15 BST]: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate might be done with development, but Nintendo is still releasing amiibo for it on a regular basis.

Now that the Minecraft amiibo Steve & Alex have been released, the focused has switched to the Final Fantasy VII antagonist Sephiroth. Masahiro Sakurai and Nintendo haven't actually publically shown off the amiibo yet.

With this in mind, we've now got a photo (via @zaypiie on Twitter) - potentially giving us a first look. One reply suggests it's from the Zürich Pop Con & Game Show, which took place on the weekend. There seems to be a crowd of people in the cabinet's reflection, as well as amiibo below Sephiroth.

Update: It looks like the Tekken Kazuya amiibo was there as well:

Keep in mind, this is just a photo plucked from social media - and we haven't been given an official look at the Sepiroth amiibo just yet. Masahiro Sakurai's only announced it. Following Sephiroth will be Pyra, Mythra, Kazuya, and presumably Sora from Kingdom Hearts.
