Nintendo has announced that Persona 5's Joker and Dragon Quest 11's Hero Super Smash Bros. Ultimate amiibo will both be available on October 2, 2020. Nintendo shared a quick video of the new amiibo, giving fans of these two DLC fighters a good look at the figures they can purchase later this year.
The Joker and Hero amiibo were both announced during the reveal presentation for Min Min from ARMS last month. Min Min is available now and, in our review of the latest fighter, we said "Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's Latest DLC character Min Min is one part Dhalsim, one part Pokemon Trainer, and one of the more exciting (if tricky to wield) concepts for a Smash character yet." In our review of Joker as a fighter, we said "As a fighter, Joker’s moves translate extremely well into the realm of Smash Bros., between the sharp red accents flying alongside his knife’s slash and his cinematic final smash that might be one of the most entertaining finishers yet – and winning the match with the All-Out Attack is just icing on the cake."
