After a strangely long wait, the last DLC characters are finally getting (more than) their due.
Today’s Nintendo Direct meant lots of assorted Nintendo news being revealed, and among it appeared the long-lost amiibo figures for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U’s final three DLC fighters: Cloud, Corrin, and Bayonetta. The bonus surprise: each character will actually get two different versions; meaning we get both the original and Advent Children versions of Cloud Strife, Bayonetta’s outfits from both of her titles, and male & female Corrin variants.
These amiibo will roll out July 21, 2017–and while package/pricing info has not yet been specified, Nintendo Direct does indicate that some will be limited to “select retailers.”

This seems to shut down the old rumor that these amiibo would appear with the announcement of a Super Smash Bros. title on Nintendo Switch, unless Nintendo isn’t telling us something yet.
The announcement appears in the Nintendo Direct video below, at 9:28.
