The Nintendo Direct today gave us so much more to look forward to when Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releases later this year! From the newly added Castlevania characters, to the more than 800 songs to relive those nostalgic glory days — there's plenty to be excited about.
But with the Echo Fighters, Donkey Kong's King K. Rool and our favourite Vampire hunters all coming to the game, it just wouldn't be the same without corresponding amiibo. Luckily, those too are on the way.
Super #SmashBros Collection #amiibo of the five newly announced Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fighters – Simon Belmont, Richter Belmont, King K. Rool, Chrom and Dark Samus – will be released in the future!— Nintendo of Europe (@NintendoEurope) August 8, 2018
Nintendo of Europe took to their Twitter to dish the good news about the fighters and their real-life counterparts. The amiibo for the game offer special attacks and advantages no matter the stage. They're just really cool to look at, to boot. With so many new characters confirmed, that impressive amiibo collection is about to get even bigger.
Unfortunately, fans are still feeling the burn from Waluigi's absence and because of that, there are quite a few hilarious reactions to the news.
And then there were those that were just plain excited:

Though Chrom already has an amiibo, it's going to be amazing to see such a notorious Castlevania character in miniature form. We don't have any images or a release date at this time, but we know that they're coming "in the future." We can't wait to see some of our favourite characters amiibo-fied!
