Smash Bros. Joker And Hero Amiibo Are Releasing This Fall
The first two DLC characters for the Switch fighting game are getting their own Amiibo figures later this year.
Min Min from Arms is the next DLC fighter joining the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster. Game director Masahiro Sakurai gave us an in-depth look at the new character in June 22's reveal presentation, but that wasn't all that he discussed during the broadcast; Sakurai also confirmed that more Smash Amiibo figures are on the way.
Specifically, Amiibo figures of Smash Bros. Ultimate's first two DLC fighters, Joker from Persona 5 and Hero from Dragon Quest, are coming this fall. No pricing details were announced during the presentation, but other Smash Amiibo retail for $16 USD apiece, so they'll presumably be the same price.
As for further figures, Sakurai said Nintendo plans to develop Amiibo based on other Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC fighters. However, he noted that "we don't know how many of them will actually be produced," so fans will need to stay tuned for future announcements.
As for Min Min, she's the first character to arrive as part of Smash Bros. Ultimate's second season of DLC. Her fighter pack will release on Monday, June 29. Like other DLC characters, she'll come alongside a brand-new stage: Spring Stadium. Nintendo is also adding 18 music tracks from Arms to the game.
Min Min is available as part of the Fighters Pass Vol. 2, which costs $30 USD and grants holders access to all six upcoming DLC fighters as they're released. You also have the option to purchase her fighter pack individually for $6 USD.
Releasing alongside Min Min on June 29 is a handful of new Mii Fighter costumes. There will be five new costumes in total: Ninjara (Arms), Heihachi (Tekken), Callie and Marie (Splatoon), and Vault Boy (Fallout). The Mii Fighter costumes retail for 75 cents apiece.
