Autumn will be the new release date for the two new amiibos planned for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. These are, of course, the last two characters introduced for the Nintendo video game: Dragon Quest XI Hero and Persona 5 Joker. As usual among Nintendo dolls, they are a real spectacle, and it remains to wait for a more specific date from the publisher in the coming weeks.
But will the end of the amiibo be the end of the entire Super Smash Bros. Ultimate line-up? Masahiro Sakurai himself, the head of Nintendo’s hit saga, seems to be opening the door to future releases of the collection: “We plan to continue producing future Amiibo for DLC fighters. However, we don’t know how many of them will be produced. Keep an eye out for future announcements.
However, it is clear that the number of dolls and their releases have decreased in recent times. The initial madness of 2015, when 60 different amiibos were released, was followed by a drop in 2016 and 2017 to 30, 11 in 2018 and 19 in 2019. In 2020 we had Dark Samus and Richter Belmont from Castlevania, which were released in the game last January. It seems clear that after Hero and Joker will come Min Min from ARMS, the last announced fighter.
