Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: overview trailer, (near) complete amiibo set on Amazon JP, miore

Today, Nintendo finally revealed the overview trailer for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It’s 7 minutes long, and shares details about all main aspects of the game: fighters, stages, modes, etc.. It’s only available in Japanese for now, but an English version should pop up within the next few days!

Here’s the Japanese overview trailer for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate:

Also, the game will be featured in Famitsu magazine this week with the latest countdown feature for it. This time, the focus will be on Spirits and various secrets! Here’s the preview page:

The latest issue of Famitsu magazine comes out on Thursday in Japan (effectively Wednesday morning/afternoon in North America and Europe respectively).

Finally, Amazon Japan has announced that they’re going to sell a special set including all 63 Super Smash Bros. amiibo figures (not including those that are yet to get a release date, and of course those based on the DLC characters). The set comes with a nice poster, but also a special box.

On paper, this would seem to be a great way for fans to get the complete collection without having to hunt down every single figure, which is something that has become quite difficult and pricey (only the most popular amiibo get reprints, after all). Unfortunately, there’s a big catch: only 50 units will be available for purchase, which isn’t too surprising given the expected price. Even if Amazon somehow managed to get each amiibo to cost only 10€, that would make the set cost about 630€/$…

Considering this set includes the Pirahna Plant amiibo, we can expect it to ship sometime in February (it would be highly unlikely for Amazon to get a hold of them before their official release). The set will be available for purchase from December 7th, 6PM JST.

Here’s a picture of the set:

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Switch) comes out on December 7th worldwide.
