We already know Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is going to have a massive cast of unlockable characters – everyone besides the base members of the Nintendo 64 game needs to be unlocked, through methods unknown right now. That said, an alternative method may have just presented itself via Best Buy Canada’s description for the Wolf amiibo.

“Access a whole new level of fun and smash the competition with this Super Smash Bros amiibo. A former fighter in Andross’ army, the Wolf now leads his own mercenary team, and he’s not one you want to cross. Simply tap the amiibo accessory to the NFC touchpoint on your game system to unlock this Space Pirate.”

This suggests we’ll be able to scan all of our amiibo to get a sizeable portion of the roster immediately, with only characters without amiibo (like Snake) being left out. This definitely sound great for those who want to play as their Smash 4 main from the get-go!

Whether it’s an exciting new entry in a series long established or a weird experiment meant only for the dedicated, Tom is eager to report on it. Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
