June 12, 2018: New details about amiibo and Smash Bros. emerge from E3!

We got a lot of Smash Bros. information to chew on during the Nintendo presentation at E3 this year. They also managed to sneak in a quick bit about amiibo functionality!

We received confirmation that all Smash Bros. series amiibo will work with Super Smash Bros. Unlimited. However, there was another even more interesting tidbit. We found that all characters amiibo figures are supported, even if they are from a different series! That means that ANY Mario amiibo will function just the same as the Smash Bros. series amiibo. Now that is a some pretty epic compatibility!

If you want to check it out yourself, just jump to 22:15 in the following video.

If you have recovered from the internet shattering announcement of Super Smash Bros. coming to Nintendo Switch, you could be moving into the preparation phase. Perhaps you are content to work on your thumb exercises. However, I am sure there are some of you that are considering getting an army of Super Smash Bros. amiibo ready to go. There is already a vast number of amiibo available for Super Smash Bros. but according to the trailer, we can be sure of at least two new additions to the roster.

Inkling Girl and Boy

Taking into account that the first half of the trailer features a girl and boy Inkling in combat I think it's pretty safe to assume that we will be seeing them arrive as playable characters. Fortunately there is already amiibo available for both of them. They can be had at Amazon for $10 and $13 respectively.

The Classics

If you're looking to pick up all the existing amiibo in the Super Smash Bros. series, here is a complete list. Due to the fact that have been out for some time now, there are some that are pretty scarce and are therefore can go for some pretty high prices.

Of course, all of the existing amiibo were created for Wii U and 3DS. It is entirely possible that Nintendo will come out with an all new series explicitly for the Switch. That being said, Nintendo is usually pretty good to its customers so we can hope that the original series will be compatible with the new release of Super Smash Bros. on the Switch.
