Today’s Super Smash Bros. presentation. Director Masahiro Sakurai revealed that Sora is the game’s final DLC-fighter. While the presentation was primarily focused on the reveal, Sakurai took some time to show new amiibo figures that will be released next year. They were based on the game. Spring 2022 will see the release of amiibo based upon Steve and Alex from Minecraft. A few days later, Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII and Pyra and Mythra of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will be available. Kazuya from Tekken is also expected to release.

A Sora amiibo wasn’t announced today. However, this doesn’t usually happen when a fighter first appears. So fans shouldn’t worry that there won’t be one. But, it’s possible that Sora will get one at some point. Today’s announcements have resulted in every other fighter receiving an amiibo representation. Some even received multiples. Sora will likely get a figure. We expect an official announcement to be made next year.
The Nintendo amiibo line was launched in 2014, along with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. The line was launched during the height of the Nintendo amiibo boom. toysThe amiibo craze is a return to life phenomenon that was popularized in games like Skylanders and LEGO Dimensions. However, amiibo has outlasted these other games. You can scan the Super Smash Bros. line into the game to fight against them or with them. They level up as more people interact with them. This is a nice feature, but most collectors don’t care about it. They just want to have a physical representation. It can be difficult to find popular figures, so it is a good idea to order these new models as soon as you can!
Do you have plans to purchase any of these amiibos Which ones are you most interested in? We’d love to hear from you in the comments, or on Twitter at @Marcdachamp for all things gaming!
