Nintendo fans should be very excited about this upcoming season. This Friday, November 21, Wii U owners around the world will finally get their hands on Super Smash Bros.. The Super Smash Bros. fighting game franchise is undoubtedly one of Nintendo's biggest console selling games, and diehard Smash Bros. fans will be waiting in line at midnight with their pre-order tickets in hand. Along with the new game comes the arrival of the first round of Amiibo figures.
These figures, when purchase, can be linked up to the Nintendo Wii and allow Super Smash Bros. owners to input their own Nintendo character with customizable stats into their game. The Amiibo can be trained, made to adapt to a certain fighting style, and even be leveled up following each match. You can choose to face your Amiibo in combat, or team up with your Amiibo to take on new challengers online.
The list of available Amiibo figures to purchase for Super Smash Bros. Wii U once the game launches are: Mario, Peach, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Link, Fox, Samus, Wii Fit Trainer, Villager, Pikachu, Kirby and Marth. More Amiibo figures will be released later in December, and additional figures will follow throughout 2015.
Along with the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros., currently available for purchase is Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. This portable version of the game offers new modes, exclusive content, and if you purchase both versions you'll have the ability to unlock the widely popular Smash Bros. character Mewtwo.
With only a couple days left until launch, there's still time to pre-order the game or in the Nintendo eShop which can be found on the Wii U for the suggested retail price of $64.99. Download codes are also available at participating retailers. For the old school fans eager to play with the classic GameCube controller, a GameCube Controller and Controller Adapter will come bundled with the game for $99.99. The Amiibo figures will be available for $13.99 each.
