No real surprise here, but Nintendo has confirmed that all of the new Smash Bros. Ultimate characters will be getting amiibo. That includes Simon Belmont, Richter Belmont, King K. Rool, Chrom and Dark Samus. No word yet on when the figures will be released.


A few hours ago, Nintendo announced that the Octoling amiibo will be available on November 9 in Europe and Japan. Unfortunately, North America will need to wait a bit longer. The three figures are scheduled for December 7 stateside.

December 7 will be quite busy for amiibo. Aside from the Octoling figures, Nintendo will also release new Smash Bros. Ultimate amiibo for Ridley, Inkling, and Wolf.


Earlier today, we heard that the trio of new Octoling amiibo are launching November 9 in Japan. Nintendo has also confirmed the same date for Europe as well.

No word yet on North America at this time. A November 9 release is likely happening stateside as well, however.


Last month, Nintendo revealed three new amiibo from Splatoon 2 – the Octolings. Today, a concrete release date for them has been revealed for Japan: November 9. No Western release date yet, but amiibo usually launch on the same day worldwide, so you can likely expect them on store shelves around the world on that day.


Nintendo’s official Japanese store has posted the packaging for the new Inkling Smash Bros. amiibo. We have it attached above.


Thanks to Amazon, we now have the packaging for the Ridley and Wolf amiibo. Both images can be found above.

Nintendo has provided a first look at the brand new Wolf amiibo that will be sold for Smash Bros. Ultimate. Wolf, in addition to Ridley and Inkling, will launch on December 7. Pricing is set at $15.99.

Nintendo has also announced that “many” of the original Smash Bros. amiibo will be re-released later this year. They’ll be sold for $12.99 each.


On Friday, the brand new Pearl and Marina amiibo for Splatoon 2 will be launching. View an unboxing video below that also has a closer look at the two figures.

Update: The amiibo will also allow you to take photos atop the stage where Off the Hook perform, plus a new visual theme and sound effects to the Squid Beatz rhythm game (thanks KobobKC).

Original: The Pearl & Marina amiibo for Splatoon 2 were revealed a while ago and they’re finally being released next week, on July 13. We’ve known about their functionality for a while, such as the fact that they will unlock special gear for your character. However, we didn’t actually know what that gear will look like – until today. The official Splatoon Twitter gave us a look at the gear today, and it turns out that it’s inspired by Pearl & Marina’s outfits from the Octo Expansion.


With a new Smash Bros. game comes new amiibo. Ridley, Inkling, and Daisy were previously confirmed to be getting figures. They won’t be the only ones, however.

Nintendo has confirmed that amiibo are planned for other returning fighters. Ice Climbers and Pichu have been specifically named. We should eventually be seeing the likes of Young Link, Wolf, and hopefully Snake among others.
