E3 2015: Roy and Ryu amiibo Confirmed for Release

During today’s special Smash Bros. presentation, Smash director Masahiro Sakurai officially confirmed that Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS newcomers Roy and Ryu will indeed receive their own amiibo figures in the future. While Nintendo says “the release timing hasn’t been finalized yet”, it’s likely we’ll see them released alongside the amiibo of other DLC characters like Mewtwo and Lucas.

Considering Nintendo’s supply struggles since the launch of amiibo last November, both figures will likely be in short supply when they eventually launch. Stay tuned for more specific release and pre-order information.
