Banjo, Byleth and Terry are the latest three Amiibo to join the collection.
For some people, the confirmation of new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Amiibo is almost as exciting as the reveal of new fighters. Over the weekend, we received a deep dive from the game’s director, Masahiro Sakurai, into the latest new character, Minecraft Steve. Alongside the look at Steve, we were treated to what many fans were hoping for, the announcement of three brand new Amiibo.
The announcement was highly anticipated but somewhat expected. During the last character’s reveal (Min Min from ARMS), we got the confirmation of the two most recently released Amiibo, Joker from Persona 5 and Hero from the Dragon Quest series. Following that trend, over the weekend, Sakurai confirmed that the final three characters from the first Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass would each be receiving their own Amiibo. These characters are Banjo and Kazooie from Banjo Kazooie, Terry Bogard from Fatal Fury and a male Byleth from Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
The confirmation of the Banjo Amiibo has eased many collectors worries. With the Banjo Kazooie IP owned by Rare, who are in turn owned by Microsoft Game Studios, licensing for the physical Amiibo could have proved tricky.
These three aren’t the only new Amiibo that have been confirmed recently either. Last month, as part of the Super Mario 35th Anniversary Direct, we got the announcement that Super Mario 3D World + Bowsers Fury is heading to the Switch. Alongside the game, Nintendo confirmed that there would be two brand new accompanying Amiibo. These two new Amiibo show both Mario and Peach wearing the Cat Suit that first appeared in 3D World.
Not only did we get the announcement of new Amiibo, but we also got the news that certain Amiibo cards will be making a return. Due to the popularity of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Nintendo has confirmed that Amiibo cards from seasons 1-4 will be returning this November, to help players find their perfect islanders.
