Sakurai reveals six new amiibo during final Smash Ultimate stream

Surprisingly, Sora was not among them.

Today, Mr. Sakurai did his final character reveal stream for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but that's not all he showed off. In addition to the announcement of Sora from Kingdom Hearts as the game's final DLC fighter, Sakurai revealed that the Kingdom Hearts game collections are coming to the Nintendo Switch sometime in the near future, and showed off the next six Super Smash Bros. Ultimate characters that are getting amiibos, all of whom are from the final Fighters Pack DLC.

First up are Steve and Alex from Minecraft, which will release sometime in spring of 2022. Sakurai noted in the stream that while he didn't have physical versions of the amiibos in the studio with him, no matter how you look at them, they're very Steve and Alex. Both are blocky and pixelated in peak Minecraft fashion, and there's definitely no mistaking either of them.

Additionally, four other Smash fighters will be joining Nintendo's amiibo ranks. Final Fantasy VII's Sephiroth, Xenoblade Chronicles' Pyra and Mythra, and Tekken's Kazuya are the latest selections for Nintendo's iconic figurine line. Notably, Min Min from Arms is also part of the final Fighters Pack DLC and had an amiibo shown off by the Nintendo UK Twitter account, but the figure did not appear in the stream itself as it was previously announced. Sora surprisingly didn't get an amiibo to coincide with his Smash debut. There aren't official release dates for the rest of these figures yet, but sometime in spring of 2022 as well seems likely. 

These amiibos, along with Sora's reveal as the final DLC fighter mark a historic and bittersweet moment for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Sora capped off this add-on pack, which was also the last DLC pack for Smash Ultimate, effectively marking the end of this title, at least from a development perspective. We don't know when or if another Smash game is coming, so fans will obviously keep this one alive in the meantime, but for now, the anticipation of the game's next fighter is finally over.
