Super Smash Bros Ultimate NintendoSource: Nintendo

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has many playable characters from throughout Nintendo's history with their own look and fun moves. Having a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate amiibo can give you access to your favorite, even if you haven't unlocked it through the game or a DLC.

When scanned, these Super Smash Bros. Ultimate amiibo will come into your game as FP (Figure Player) fighters, allowing you to train and level them to become stronger the more you play with them. These FP fighters appear and function just like their standard counterparts otherwise. All their stats are saved in the amiibo, and you can take your fighters into others' games so you can have them no matter where you're playing.

Don't forget that fighters are tied to all versions of their amiibo figurines, so Yarn Yoshi will scan into your game just as a regular Yoshi would. This is great news for those who like some of the more flavorful amiibo variations available.
