Ken, Daisy and Young Link come out April 12.
The next wave of Smash amiibo are almost here, and we’ve got the full scoop on where they’re available for preorder. If you’ve been out of the amiibo game for a while, you should know that the quality of amiibo now versus when they were first introduced is night and day. The newer ones are more detailed, with better sculpts, paint, and poses.
If you were hoping to add a Piranha Plant amiibo to your collection, you’re out of luck. For the time being, the plucky plant is sold out at all the major online retailers. That doesn’t mean you should plunk down a sum of money to get one on the grey market just yet. There’s a good chance Nintendo will release more. Trust me. I paid… more than asking… for a Japanese ROB last time around.
Here are the upcoming amiibo you can preorder, and where to get them:
Preorder Young Link Amiibo
This is the younger version of Link from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I’m also pretty sure there are more Link amiibo variations than any other Nintendo character. I’m going to research this to be sure.
Preorder Ken Amiibo
He’s just a Ryu echo fighter in Super Smash Bros., but as a world warrior, he just ekes out Ryu in the rankings. Or at least, he did when Street Fighter 2 came to Super NES in 1992.
Preorder Daisy Amiibo
Well well well, look who we have here: one of the top-tier Super Smash Bros. characters, but in amiibo form. She’s a Princess Peach echo fighter, and if you’ve been following Smash you know Peach was B-tier last game.
Preorder King K Rool Amiibo
He’s the heavy hitter everyone wants to main, and his golden crown, bracelets, and rotund belly really help King K Roll dazzle on the battlefield. King K Rool comes out February 15. That’s tomorrow!
Preorder Ice Climbers Amiibo
Absolutely one of the most adorable amiibo in the entire line-up. The original Ice Climbers game doesn’t hold up, at all, but they’re beloved Smash characters now, so we can all put the past behind us.
Preorder Shovel Knight Treasure Trove 3-pack Amiibo
Obviously this isn’t a Smash Bros. series, but Shovel Knight was the first third-party amiibo, ever, and this is a fantastic 3-pack based on the Treasure Trove edition. If you haven’t played Shovel Knight, I’m almost envious of you, because you get to experience the raw joy of it for the first time. The Shovel Knight Treasure Trove 3-Pack comes out April 9.
