Cloud and Bayonetta amiibo are about to battle for your shelf space

Wave 7

Originally set for North American release in September 2015, these amiibo were late to the party, eventually making a quiet entrance in November. Personally, I blame Falco. But hey, better late than never!

Compatibility:

Varies, see below.

Release date: November 2015 (US)

Falco

If Fox McCloud is the lead singer of the Star Fox squad, Falco is the moody bassist, the backbone of the group who's always upset he has to play second-fiddle to the hero. That's OK, though, because no matter how snarky he gets, he'll always help you out in a jam - even if he has to constantly remind you of it, of course. Falco was exclusive to Best Buy at launch in the US, but is now available at other retailers.

Mewtwo

The homicidal result of Pokemon-obsessed scientists trying to play God, Mewtwo is one of the most powerful Pokemon in existence, and remains so after seven-hundred more showed up, thank-you-very-much. The first Smash Bros DLC character to get his own amiibo, we can only imagine he exerted his own special brand of charisma to ensure he was added to the collection. He's persuasive like that.

Mii Fighters

Yep, even the player-created Mii Fighters are getting their own amiibo, though their figures aren't customizable like their digital counterparts. Each version of the Mii Fighter will get their own amiibo, including the Mii Brawler, Mii Gunner, and the Mii Swordfighter. And like the in-game Mii Fighters, the AI -controlled combatant unlocked by these amiibo can be fully customized with costumes, masks, and abilities. The Mii Fighters are available exclusively in the Mii-Fighter three-pack in the US.
