According to the Nintendo VS Twitter account, Ridley, Inkling, and Wolf amiibo will release alongside Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on December 7th for $15.99 USD per figure. The price has increased by three dollars, but on the other hand, so has the detail on each figure. Reprints of the original Super Smash Bros. amiibo will be made available that day as well. Pre-orders have been popping up on retailers such as Best Buy, so keep an eye out, and get ready for amiibo training to make a comeback!
It’s been a busy E3 for Nintendo: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was officially announced for Nintendo Switch, and it’s shaping up to be the largest, most polished entry yet. And we’re thanking our lucky stars that amiibo training is back and better than ever. Ultimate’s new mechanics and moveset updates will have several effects on the metagame: including two particular characters who we believe will be quickbanned. Let’s get started.
During Nintendo’s Treehouse broadcast, three new Super Smash Bros. series amiibo were confirmed: Inkling and Ridley, which were shown directly, and Daisy, who was verbally confirmed. This means that Inkling, Ridley, and Daisy will all enter the amiibo metagame as new contenders. And you can be sure that Amiibo Dojo will have training guides on each of them!
