Nintendo has confirmed that returning series veteran fighters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will receive their own amiibo figures. That extends to characters who’ve never seen an amiibo for Super Smash Bros. For Wii U, including Ice Climbers, Wolf, Pichu, Snake, Young Link, and Pokemon Trainer. These will join the announced amiibo for newcomer fighters, like Inkling Girl, Ridley, and Daisy.

In related news, Nintendo is reprinting the entire Super Smash Bros. amiibo series to coincide with the super-sized sequel’s release in December. The line will be re-released in two waves, one on December 7th and the other in early 2019. There’s no telling on whether a similar offer will be extended to western regions, where the Super Smash Bros. amiibo line proved immensely popular back in late-2014 and into 2015.

Here are the precise figures to be reissued in their respective waves:

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate works with amiibo in much the same way as the previous entries on Wii U and 3DS did. Players can train a Figure Player in ways of combat up to level 50 and have FPs collect various pieces of loot, like character moves and gear. All the data from existing amiibo with Smash Bros. data can be carried over into Ultimate.
