During today’s Smash Bros. presentation, director Masahiro Sakurai officially announced that Amiibo for the two most recent DLC characters, Ryu and Roy, as well as a Famicom version of the R.O.B. Amiibo, are currently in development. According to Sakurai, all three figures are scheduled to be released on March 18th in North America; there is currently no word on whether or not any of these figures will be included in any bundles or sold as retailer exclusives, but we’ll likely learn more as we approach the March release date.

Our Verdict


Elijah Holt
Greetings Gamnesiacs! I'm Elijah Holt, a Associate Editor coming at you live from beautiful Alabama. My love for gaming started at an early age and has ingrained a love for two different gaming companies in my mind. On one side, my love of the Nintendo 64 and my countless hours spent perfecting the first few levels of Super Mario 64 (I was never good enough to get past those...maybe if they release it for the Wii U eShop someday...) resulted in my love for everything Nintendo; meanwhile, I also owned an original PlayStation, which has resulted in me currently owning a PS3 and PS4 for a few Sony exclusives and third-party titles. I'm a recent graduate of Auburn University, where I majored in Software Engineering. I currently work in DevOps as an Automation Engineer. I look forward to continuing to provide the finest content on the internet to loyal Gamnesia readers like you. Want to contact me? You can always shoot me an email at [email protected]
