Long ago, Nintendo committed to make an amiibo out of nearly every major character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and that process is still ongoing, despite the game itself being finished with updates. Tonight, Nintendo has announced a final release date of April 29, 2022 for the Min Min amiibo, a character from the second wave of Smash Ultimate DLC. At the same time, it explained that the Minecraft Steve and Alex amiibo have hit a “logistics and production delay,” so they will now arrive later in 2022. They were originally supposed to arrive this spring.
Min Min hails from the 2017 Nintendo Switch game Arms, which was decently well received at launch but didn’t garner much attention or major support afterward. The game was supposed to at least receive a comic book at one point, but even that was canceled. This Min Min amiibo and its April release date will double as a reminder that Arms exists.

After the Min Min, Steve, and Alex amiibo all launch, there will still be a few Super Smash Bros. Ultimate amiibo left to release. These include amiibo for Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII, Pyra and Mythra from Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and Kazuya Mishima from Tekken. Sora from Kingdom Hearts may not receive one for various (likely legal) reasons.
