New Batch Of Amiibo Figures Revealed By Nintendo


Still haven’t satiated your hunger to collect all things Nintendo? These new Amiibo figures are sure to fill the hole when they become available on March 18 next year. Shown off as part of the Big N’s final Smash Bros.-focused Nintendo Direct conference earlier in the week, you probably missed the three-strong reveal amid all of the new character announcements and details surrounding Cloud Strife, Bayonetta and Corrin.

Street Fighter‘s Ryu, Fire Emblem‘s Roy and Nintendo mascot R.O.B. are the three new miniature figures going on sale in 2016 for the first time in North America, but releases in other territories are yet to be announced. Most notably, R.O.B. has been available to buy in Japan for quite some time without a Western release.

But that’s not even the end of the line for collectors. Nintendo reiterated during the Direct show that ALL Smash Bros. characters will eventually be released in Amiibo form, confirming that Corrin, Cloud and Bayonetta will all receive their own figures too.

Before all of those hit the shelves though, the next batch – due in January – will see Lucas, Mr. Resetti, Blathers, Kicks, Celeste and Shovel Knight (which is already available in Europe) join the cast of existing Amiibos.
