Nintendo confirmed that you’ll eventually be able to get an amiibo for your Super Smash Bros. fighter of choice.
So Nintendo kind of accidentally discovered that fans will beg, borrow and steal its collectible amiibos to such a crazy extent, that Amazon had to do a kind of bizarre timed-sale strategy for the latest wave of the things to prevent people from buying out its entire stock. Today it confirmed what most people had already guessed: the amiibo train will keep running all the way to the end of the station, in that, eventually all 51 Super Smash Bros. 4 characters will get an amiibo.
“In fact, all 51 playable Smash Bros. characters will eventually have #amiibo figures,” Tweeted Nintendo of America. It confirmed that newly released DLC characters Mewtwo and Lucas would be getting amiibo, but the number does exclude the recently revealed Roy and Ryu.
Nintendo also told us who we could expect to next get the plastic figurization treatment, stating that “New Smash Bros. amiibo based on the Mii Brawler, Mii Swordfighter and Mii Gunner characters are coming soon,” and adding “R.O.B., Duck Hunt and Mr. Game & Watch amiibo for Smash Bros. will join the Mii Fighters in September, with Falco coming this holiday.”
I’m personally interested to see how the Game & Watch amiibo will work. If it’s not completely flat and 2D… no sale!
So, if you were worried that your obscure Super Smash Bros. main wouldn’t be getting an amiibo, fret not! Now all you have to do is somehow get your hands on it before it runs out of stock…
