REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– This holiday season is all about Mario. And Link. And Yoshi. And Samus. And Kirby. And…well, a lot of classic video game characters. That’s because Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and the first round of amiibo figures, Nintendo’s first foray into the toys-to-life category, are both launching on Nov. 21, right in time for the holiday shopping season. Nintendo’s favorite characters are going to be everywhere, whether on the battlefields of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, on store shelves as must-have amiibo figures or at the top of everyone’s holiday wish lists.

“Launching Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and amiibo on the same day kicks off the holiday shopping season with a bang…and a smash,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “With a wide range of amiibo figures to choose from and a new Super Smash Bros. game on Wii U with more features than ever before, shopping for the Nintendo fan on your list will be easy this year.”


Super Smash Bros. for Wii U supports a whole bunch of controllers. You can use a GameCube controller, the GamePad, the 3DS, the Wii Remote, and more.

As it turns out, the DK Bongos are also supported! You know, those controllers that were made for Donkey Konga and Donkey Kong Jungle Beat for the GameCube. Players can use the DK Bongos by plugging them in via the new GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U.
