New Super Smash Bros. series amiibo of Inkling Girl and Ridley were revealed during the Nintendo Treehouse Live for E3 2018. In addition, series director Masahiro Sakurai promised that Daisy, a new playable variant of Peach, will see her own Smash amiibo in the future as well.

While similar to her 2015 amiibo, Sakurai says the new Inkling Girl amiibo differs ever so slightly, with the ink tank having different placement of it’s triangle.

Those those who have already acquired massive amiibo collections since the line’s launch in 2014, every “current” Super Smash Bros. amiibo will work with Ultimate. Every fighter’s variant amiibo (such as Mario) will also work with the game. The figures function in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as they did in the Wii U and 3DS games as AI fighters that can farm loot. Your figure fighter’s progress from the previous titles will also carry over.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launches December 7th, 2018. It notably includes every.single.character from Smash Bros. history, new fighters like Inkling Girl, and a host of mechanical updates.
