It turns out that Super Smash Bros. Wii U will be hitting store shelves before the holidays after all. Nintendo has set aside November 21 as the day when all Wii U owners fall victim to "Smash" sickness.
The first wave of Amiibo figures, consisting of Mario, Peach, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Link, Fox, Samus, Wii Fit Trainer, Villager, Pikachu, Kirby, and Marth, will arrive on the same day. There will be a second wave of figures releasing later in the month that will include Zelda, Diddy Kong, Luigi, Pit, Captain Falcon, and Little Mac.
Nintendo has also announced that a Wii U compatible GameCube controller ($29.99) will launch alongside Super Smash Bros. Wii U. There will also be a bundle that include Super Smash Bros. Wii U, the GameCube controller, and an adapter that allows players to use their original GameCube controllers ($99.99). The adapter will be sold separately for $19.99.
