Among the various exciting announcements during the latest Nintendo Direct, a historic revelation was made regarding Super Smash Bros. Specifically, the amiibos dedicated to the characters of the latest game since its release were announced. Nintendo has finally confirmed that Sora, the final fighter added to Smash Ultimate, will be getting his own amiibo figure. The exact release date for Sora's Smash amiibo was not mentioned, only a vague release window in 2024.
Despite all the other characters having Smash amiibos, there were concerns among collectors that Sora might not receive one. As the protagonist of Kingdom Hearts is technically a Disney character, there was a real chance that Nintendo and Disney would clash if Sora were to have a toy released under the Nintendo banner. It's already a small miracle that Sora made it into Smash at all, so consider this amiibo as an extension of that miracle.
Sora's figure was not the only amiibo news we received during today's Direct. The amiibos of Ganondorf and Zelda from Tears of the Kingdom were showcased again and now have release dates. The Ganondorf amiibo, inspired by the image of the villain that people were eager for before the launch of the latest Zelda game - which I assume is more than just a happy coincidence - and the Zelda amiibo will be released on November 3rd.
Sora's amiibo is real and will be released in 2024. He is the final character from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate to receive his own figure, which is not something that was guaranteed due to the connection between Kingdom Hearts and Disney.
However, the amiibo news didn't stop there. In addition to the Zora and Tears of the Kingdom additions, Nintendo also revealed a release date for the upcoming Xenoblade Chronicles 3 amiibos. The figures of Noah and Mio will be available starting January 19, 2024. The two will join Pyra and Mythra, whose amiibos will also be available as a double pack next year.
Tears Of The Kingdom Ganondorf Amiibo
Ganondorf's look from Tears of the Kingdom, which many fans enjoyed upon the game's release, now has its own amiibo. In addition, a new Zelda figure was announced and will be available from November 2023.
All the announced amiibos will be joined by three brand-new Splatoon 3 figures, set to be released before the end of 2023. Frye, Shiver, and Big Man were all previously confirmed earlier this year to be getting their very first amiibos. Big Man's figure was predictably popular and quickly sold out but has recently been restocked, so it might still be available if you act quickly.
