Smash Bros Wii U Coming To The US On November 21st With Amiibo

To keep the momentum going, Nintendo has unveiled the launch date of the Wii U version of the fighting game. The Super Smash Bros. for Wii U game will launch in North America on Nov. 21, just in time for the heart of the holiday shopping season, at a suggested retail price of $59.99. The first wave of Nintendo’s interactive amiibo figures will launch the same day at a suggested retail price of $12.99 each. Twelve iconic Nintendo characters will be included in the first wave, with a second wave of six more figures set to launch in December.

As previously announced, the first wave of amiibo includes Mario, Peach, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Link, Fox, Samus, Wii Fit Trainer, Villager, Pikachu, Kirby and Marth. The second wave that launches in December includes Zelda, Diddy Kong, Luigi, Little Mac, Pit and Captain Falcon.

The amiibo figures can interact wirelessly with compatible games in unique new ways, providing fresh game-play experiences and a great value for consumers. Players simply need to tap them to the Wii U GamePad controller to activate them, and some figures offer compatibility across multiple games – no additional equipment is required. Fans can buy and collect amiibo, to bring them closer to the games and characters they love. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will support amiibo when it launches on Nov. 21, and upcoming amiibo compatible games include Mario Party 10 and Yoshi’s Woolly World, with more to come. Mario Kart 8, available now in stores and the Nintendo eShop, will also support amiibo in the future. A software update may be necessary to use amiibo functionality for these and other amiibo compatible games in the future.

For those who want to play Super Smash Bros. for Wii U with their favorite Nintendo GameCube controller, Nintendo is introducing an adapter that lets up to four original Nintendo GameCube or WaveBird controllers work with the game. The adapter will be available at a suggested retail price of $19.99. Nintendo is also launching a standalone Nintendo GameCube controller emblazoned with the iconic Super Smash Bros.insignia at a suggested retail price of $29.99. Additionally, Nintendo is offering a special bundle that includes Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, one Nintendo GameCube controller and one adapter at a suggested retail price of $99.99. All of these items launch Nov. 21.

    1. They tried time and time again to deny this as the release date. But waddaya know, It’s the actual release date. Who’d have guessed?

  1. IT’S COMING TO NA FIRST?! YEAH! FUCK ALL OF YOU BIG YOUTUBERS WHO BOUGHT A JAPANESE WII U FOR FUCKING VIEWS YOU FAGGOTS!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA YES!!!!!!!!

        1. Most people love Nintendo games and wanted to try games that only releases in japan, and yet you have dumbasses or trolls like this retard caps jizzing in the comments e_e this little faggot needs to understand why most people go the extra mile to fucking try these games, he’s probably too damn poor to get anything over seas

    1. LOL Nintendo made bank cuz the impatient tubers didn’t want to wait so they bought a JP 3DS and SSB3D! XD

    1. The 3DS version is actually pretty fun, and It has quite a following already!

      Right now, I’m maining Lil mac, Bowser (of course) and tinkering with Zero Suit Samus / Samus.

  2. In other news japan and UK, have to wait a few more weeks…SUCK IT JAPAN, WE GET SOMETHING U MADE BEFORE U…

      1. meh, couldn’t really care about pokemon to be honest. They have been milking it with yearly releases for since pokemon black came out. They really need to slow down and work on something else for a while.

      2. Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire won’t suffer as much since they’ll sell millions of those in Japan alone.

      1. I don’t hate them and totally understand why they get stuff first, but I won’t turn down the opportunity to get Smash before the rest of the world lol

  3. Damn that means I need a 100 dollars a month earlier, alright! Save up time. So there isn’t a bundle with the amiibo right?

  4. I fucking new that it would eventually have that November 20’s release soon. Time for me to get that Duck Hunt and Wii Fit Trainer Amiibo.

  5. Yes!!! We’re Nintendo. We love to compete with ourselves.
    We love to not only have games release week after week but also the same day as another Nintendo game. Please Understand

    1. Almost every company does that you fucking moron, ubisoft, ea, 2k, activsion, sega, ect. Wtf is your dumbass going on about?

      1. Actually he has a point. We go months with a dry streak and now this -_- its pretty damn stupid. Also, learn the difference between your and you’re. It’ll do wonders in the future.

        1. Who exactly are you agreeing with? e.e btw neither of us missed used the “you’re” and “your” you need glasses smartass

        2. Exactly that’s why I told him that specific comment. I don’t argue with someone who can’t spell correctly.

  6. Bayonetta 2 is releasing on October 24th, Smash Bros is releasing on November 21st & Captain Toad Treasure Tracker is releasing on December 5th at a suggested retail price of only $39.99???….. PARDON ME WHILE I KISS THE SKY

    1. My money is going down hill in that week alone.
      Watch Dogs Nov 18, Dragon age inquistion Nov 18, Smash Bros. Nov 21……..
      Basically $200 dollars right there.

  7. Of course us Europeans have to wait longer, what a surprise. ((((:
    Why not just give people a global release ? They did that with the 3DS version after all, so why not again ? Having to wait nearly 2 weeks longer kinda is a big deal, tbh.
    Sigh, can’t be helped I guess. Either way, lucky Americans ! Happy for them. d:

  8. I’m really wondering if Nintendo actually wants this to fail miserably or if they are just stupid.
    The game being a pathetic “HD” port with very low polygons and a rooster crippled by Sakurai’s stupid demand that the roster should be the same as the 3DS’ is already bad enough; launching it two months after the 3DS version kills any hype, the 3DS version sold 2 millions, 2 millions that could have helped move Wii U units, now nobody is gonna get a Wii U for $300 and a game for “60 when they probably already have a 3DS and can get the exact same experience on it for $40.
    Apart from that, launching exactly in between Watch_Dogs and Pokemon ORAS? Yeah, good fucking luck.

  9. I’m going to just sit back and enjoy Smash Bros for 3DS and Mario Kart 8 for Wii U until next year. Then I’ll start buying other games around maybe spring 2015. I honestly don’t understand why some people waste their money getting a game on launch that they may or may not like. Waiting for reviews is a smart thing to do. Glad I didn’t pick up Hyrule Warriors when it launched otherwise, I would be broke right now. It’ll go into my gaming plans for next year along with a lot of other games.

  10. Nobody cares about this piece of shit version. This is going to meet the same fate Brawl did as of late 2013 in that its competitive scene was slowly dying. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Shit U version’s competitive scene went to do the same thing Brawl did.
    Melee will still be the king. 3DS will be there because it’s handheld Smash and will sell a lot more than this crap.

  11. Nobody cares about this piece of shit version. “More competitive” lol. I wouldn’t be surprised if the Shit U version’s competitive scene was slowly dying like Brawl did in late 2013.
    Melee will still be the king, 3DS will still exist because it’s handheld Smash and will sell a lot more than this crap. You all have to realize that the Wii U won’t sell. Mario Kart 8 helped and the Wii U’s sales were still not good.
    I’ll come back and say “I called it!” when the 3DS version sells a lot more in Black Friday + Pokémon OR/AS hype which means the 3DS will go skyrocket in sales, while the Wii U has nothing but Smash. lmao

      1. Hey, not my fault the Wii U is shit-tier in sales. Not my fault Smash 3DS will sell a lot more. Not my fault Melee is a better competitive game.
        Not my fault Smash Wii U’s competitive scene will fade like Brawl’s.

        1. You’re totally wrong. 3DS is for casual play. It’s great for what it is, THAT’S it. You know how many times I die on classic at 9.0 intensity ONLY cause my finger slides of the shitty circle pad? Or can’t perform as well cause the system is so cramped? It’s the tide me over version. I’m trying to 100% asap cause once the U launches the 3ds version will be taking a seat for a long time.

            1. I’m used to it and I’ve beaten everyone online I’ve fought, but anyone who says it’s as good as the U version is lying to themselves. There’s nothing about getting used to your finger slipping off the slider cause it’s a little sweaty. “lmao”

  12. A part of me that hates what Nintendo is doing with Smash Bros actually wants the Wii U version to sale miserably just to teach them a lesson about what happens when you try to make both versions equal in characters & alternate outfits with barely anything else exclusive. Better graphics don’t really matter to me in the end, & I don’t need a better control option since I can easily adapt to the 3DS’s controls with time & practice.

    But the loyal Nintendo part of me wants the Wii U version to make a killing so it can help the Wii U itself sell a couple million Wii U consoles, if not more. If the Wii U version ends up with more or equal amounts of owners as the 3DS version, I will definitely double dip. But if it doesn’t, fuck it because I’ll just stick with the 3DS version just out of spite.
