What Will New amiibo Look Like? Wave 4, Wave 5

by Prima Games Staff

This holiday season brought an unexpected surprise we refer to as amiibogeddon.  Going into the busiest shopping time of the year, we knew Lego Minecraft and Frozen would be huge, but Nintendo threw us a curve with its amiibo figures, designed to work with Super Smash Bros., Hyrule Warriors and Mario Kart 8. Once word got out that certain amiibo were hard to find, namely Marth, Villager and Wii Fit Trainer, people started obsessing over store inventories. Now it seems retailers can barely keep amiibo in stock for Christmas.

What’s left for Nintendo to do? Simple, reveal even more amiibo.

We already know about Wave 3, which launches this February and features four store exclusive figures, Shulk and Rosalina among them. Now it’s only a matter of time before the company officially announces Wave 4, Wave 5 and perhaps Wave 6.

Granted, we don’t know which Super Smash Bros. characters will appear in these waves, but we know exactly what they’ll look like because Nintendo bases amiibo off their poses in the Smash Bros. video game.

Here’s Peach artwork from Super Smash Bros. on the Wii U.

Now compare it to her amiibo.

Check out this Luigi art from Smash.

This is the figure you’ll find in stores.

One last time, here’s Captain Falcon.

And here is his corresponding amiibo.

Nintendo already mentioned that every character in Smash will receive figures, so you can expect to see Dr. Mario, Ness, Mr. Game & Watch, Bowser Jr., Palutena, Pac-Man, R.O.B. and Duck Hunt amiibo in the following poses.
