New Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Amiibo Figures Revealed
Today’s new Nintendo Direct presentation has yielded a myriad of exciting reveals, arguably the chief among them being a modern remake of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. While news was admittedly lighter on the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate side of things, we did get ourselves a peek at the next batch of themed Amiibo figures that ready to make their debut later on this year.
Announced during the Direct presentation, Nintendo showed off a lineup of five Amiibo that will have their chance to sit atop admiring gamers’ shelves sometime in 2019. Included in the mix are Nintendo mainstays Pokemon Trainer, Squirtle and Ivysaur, but also a pair of third-party characters in Metal Gear Solid‘s Snake and Simon Belmont from Castlevania.

Attentive fans may not be surprised by a few of these figures as a number of potential Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Amiibo were leaked only a few weeks ago. These unconfirmed figurines revealed all of the above names ahead of time, but also teased the future releases of Dark Samus, Chrom, and Simon’s fellow Belmont, Richter. Though these few weren’t included in Nintendo’s announcement, it’s possible we may see the rest revealed as the year goes on.
What do you think? Are you glad to see a new set of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Amiibo, or are you now peeved that Dark Samus might’ve been snubbed from the lineup?
