Nintendo Shows Off New Amiibo

The ever popular toys-to-life series that Nintendo has given us is about to get bigger. Finally, we have new details regarding the last few Super Smash Bros amiibo as well as some new figures joining the lineup.

We’ve known for a long time that a Bayonetta, Cloud and Corrin amiibo were coming at some point and we finally have an answer. These three amiibo will launch on July 21. But the exciting part is all three amiibo will be receiving two versions and some are said to be retail exclusives.  No details were given on which retailers will get the exclusives on these but those details will be out soon, I’m sure.

It’s been rumored for a while that we would be getting new Zelda amiibo, and today Nintendo confirmed that we’re, in fact, getting three new figures for the Zelda 30th Anniversary line. These amiibo will launch on June 23 and will include Link as he appeared in Majora’s Mask, Twilight Princess, and Skyward Sword. I anticipate these amiibo will work as the rest of the line does in Breath of the Wild, though no details were given.

In a small surprise, a new amiibo is coming out for Pikmin fans. The game, Hey Pikmin! is launching on 3DS on July 28 and it’s getting its own amiibo featuring the cute little Pikmin.

The last amiibo announcement comes on the heels of the Splatoon 2 news during the Direct. We’re getting three new Splatoon amiibo launching alongside the new game on July 21. The new amiibo consist of new looks for the Inkling Boy, Inkling Girl, and Squid.

After these announcements, I can hear my wallet crying in the corner. Looks like I need more shelf space…
