Nintendo has announced the release dates for its next Super Smash Bros amiibo figures.
Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII and Kazuya Mishima from Tekken will both be available on January 13, 2023, the company tweeted.
These will be followed later in the year by Pyra and Mythra from Xenoblade Chronicles 2.
Once these amiibo are released, only one Smash Bros character will remain.
Nintendo has yet to confirm when the final character, Sora from Kingdom Hearts, will be released in amiibo form. However, it has stated on numerous occasions that every Smash Bros fighter would be released as an amiibo over time.
In Japan, the Pyra and Mythra amiibo will only be available as a two-pack. It’s not yet clear if this will be the case in the west.
The last major update made to Super Smash Bros Ultimate was the Version 13.0.1 patch in December 2021, which made the final balancing adjustments to the game.
Version 13.0.1 made some tweaks to a number of characters’ moves to better balance the combat, but Nintendo stated that this would be the last time that would happen.
Following that update, the game’s combat mechanics were considered fully complete.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai said last year that he was undecided if he’ll make another series entry now that the Switch instalment’s generous DLC schedule is complete.
Ultimate’s final DLC character, Sora from the Kingdom Hearts series, was released in October 2021. It marked the completion of nearly three years of DLC, which saw 11 new characters added to the game.
