A selection of new amiibo are debuting parallel to Super Smash Bros Ultimate, to complete the huge roster of characters available. There will be new figures for each fighter, with some debuting at launch and others staggered to follow.

At the game’s launch on Dec. 7, Ridley from Metroid, Inkling from Splatoon and Wolf from Star Fox will be available for purchase.

A few months later, on Feb. 15, King K. Rool from Donkey Kong and the Ice Climbers will join the available amiibo. Other amiibo coming to shelves later in 2019 are Isabelle from Animal Crossing, Ken from Street Fighter, Young Link of the Zelda games, Pikachu’s pre-evolution, Pichu and Princess Daisy.

The special pre-order bonus character Piranha Plant will also be getting an amiibo, with a “nice curved form.”

If you’ve already got your own collection of figures, don’t worry: Super Smash Bros Ultimate will support all pre-existing amiibo and their data can be transferred to the new game. Read up on all the included characters and everything else Smash-related here.
