This week marks Gamescom 2018 in Germany and Nintendo’s brought a few new toys for attendees to see up close — specifically the first wave of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate amiibo, featuring Inkling, Ridley, and returning fighter Wolf; and the upcoming Octoling triple pack. Have a look at some shots of all of them together, courtesy of @NintenDaan.

We also have some up close video footage of Wolf and the Octolings courtesy of Gaming Boulevard on YouTube:


The fine details on Wolf are incredible, turning a character I was pleased to see come back into an amiibo I might just be tracking down. The Octolings also continue the great, stylish standard of the earlier Splatoon 2 amiibo, capturing the art for the game well and featuring a high amount of shine.

All of these amiibo will be releasing on December 7th alongside Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
