Amiibo were first introduced in 2014 by Nintendo to serve as the company's toys-to-life line of figures that would unlock and affect compatible Wii U and 3DS games the first of which being Super Smash Bros. for Wii U with every character eventually receiving their own miniature statue.

These small figures proved to be much more popular than many anticipated leading to shortages and inflated online prices for Amiibo — in the United States at least, and many players were scrambling to find their favorites only to be met with large amount of Mario figures on store shelves.

Nintendo announced via Twitter that the Super Smash Bros. line of Amiibo will be continuing for Smash Ultimate and with that will come new figures for the characters Wolf, Ridley and Inkling — Ice Climbers and Pichu were also confirmed but are yet to be shown — along with the announcement that many of the original line up of Smash 4 Amiibo would also be returning.

The Wolf, Ridley and Inkling Amiibo are set to launch alongside the new Switch game on December 7th later this year and will be retailing for $15.99 USD. Original Super Smash Bros. Amiibo will be re-released later in the year at their standard price of $12.99.

Nintendo did not mention the Ice Climbers, Pichu or previously announced Daisy Amiibo, and there is still no word as to whether or not Metal Gear Solid's Snake will be receiving his own figure though every previous third party character in the game has before him — including Bayonetta, Ryu and Cloud.

The publisher/ developer has also previously stated that any version of a character's Amiibo will work in Smash Ultimate, so you can dig up your giant Wooly Yoshi or first run Inkling Girl and drop them into the game. You can take a look at the three new Amiibo in the gallery below, and let us know what your favorite Amiibo figure is in the comments.
