Ridley, Inkling, and Wolf are confirmed for December release. Reissues of original Super Smash Bros amiibo also planned.
Nintendo has confirmed the release date for three new amiibo that will be compatible with the forthcoming Switch exclusive, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Fan-favourite Ridley will be released alongside a Splatoon Inkling and Wolf from Star Fox. They’ll drop day-and-date with the game on December 7, and will be priced at $15.99.
According to the tweet from the NintendoVS account, many of the amiibos released alongside Super Smash Bros, for Wii U and 3DS will also be reissued later this year, priced at $12.99.
Ridley, Inkling and Wolf are coming to the Super Smash Bros. series of #amiibo! These amiibo will arrive 12/7 and will retail for $15.99.

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.

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
