Nintendo has confirmed the release date for three new amiibo that will be compatible with the forthcoming Switch exclusive, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

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.

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.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. 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! 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.
