An image surfaced online today showing what appears to be new amiibo for the Super Smash Bros. line. We’re able to get first looks at the likes of Pokemon Trainer and Snake. Additionally, Ivysaur, Squirtle, Dark Samus, Chrom, Simon, and Richter are listed.

Apparently, the image stems from a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate guide that was made available in Japan this week. That being said, take this with a grain of salt as its origins have not been officially confirmed.



A trio of amiibo will soon be returning to store shelves at Best Buy. The retailer is bringing back Cloud (Player 2), Roy, and Charizard.

All three can be pre-ordered here. They’ll be available starting February 15.

Yacht Club Games produced a Shovel Knight amiibo a few years ago. Now the same figure appears to be getting a gold variant.

Play-Asia is where news about the possible gold Shovel Knight has emerged from. The retailer doesn’t show any pictures, however. There’s also no word yet on a release date.

We’ll keep you updated if we hear anything else about the situation.


Since the announcement of Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, fans have requested ports of the original No More Heroes games on Switch. Creator Suda51 has expressed interest in the idea in the past, and again has indicated that he’d like to make it happen.

When asked by ntower about porting games like No More Heroes or Killer7 to Switch, Suda51 said:

Just like Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate makes use of amiibo. However, there’s one figure this time around that has special functionality.

Do you happen to have one of those Timmy & Tommy amiibo lying around from the Animal Crossing series? If so, you can put it to good use in the new Switch game.

Fans have made all sorts of their own amiibo since Nintendo launched the figure line a few years ago. But how about one based on Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai?

Sean Hicks originally created 2D artwork for Sakurai’s pose, which was turned into 3D by artist George Crudo. Crudo then had it 3D-printed and painted.

The first wave of new Smash Bros. amiibo are out in the world. Check out an unboxing video for Ridley, Inkling Girl, and Wolf below.

Amazon Japan has revealed a special set containing 63 different Smash Bros. amiibo. The package features a ton of different figures, but will be missing some of the ones due out in February and beyond. It’ll all be wrapped in a unique box and comes with a poster.

Fans can’t actually place an order for the set just yet. Amazon Japan will open pre-orders on December 7, and will likely ship in February given that the Piranha Plant amiibo is included. Another important tidbit: only 50 units will be produced.



Nintendo has been updating a slew of child’s safety certificates for amiibo over the past few weeks. In other words, the company is gearing up for massive restocks.

Donkey Kong, Yoshi, Little Mac, Bowser, Rosalina and Luma, Shulk, Meta Knight, Wario, Roy, and Cloud (Player 2) have all received a new month of manufacturing. Nintendo posted these updated certificates within the past week. As always, there isn’t a set date for their return, but they’ll likely be showing up again at retailers in the near future.
