R.O.B is getting his second amiibo, making him the first character outside the Mushroom Kingdom cast to get two amiibo, and no, Turbo Charge Donkey Kong doesn’t count.
This new one features everyone’s favourite robot in his red and grey colours, the way he appeared when he was bundled with the Famicom all those years ago.
Street Fighter’s Ryu is coming as well, and he’s sure to be incredibly popular. It’s not only Smash fans and amiibo collectors wanting this one- it’s the Street Fighter fans too, and there’s a hell of a lot of them of all ages.
It’ll be interested to see how the supply is managed with Ryu. I think he’s going to be one of the biggest sellers ever.
Rounding out the three R’s is Fire Emblem’s Roy. Roy’s a Smash Bros. veteran now, so it’s good to see him finally getting an amiibo, he is far more deserving than Lucina or Robin.
I’ll post any bargains for these three new amiibo as I see them.
