Smash amiibos for Daisy, Pichu, and the Ice Climbers have already been confirmed, but fans are still waiting on news of figurines for Pokémon Trainer and Solid Snake.
Another huge question also remains. Will the reissue of Wii Fit Trainer feature the original face, or the new face unveiled by Masahiro Sakurai during Nintendo’s interminable E3 2018 direct? Woe is us.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be released worldwide for Nintendo Switch on December 7, 2018.
