Originally, Amiibo strictly featured first-party Nintendo characters. Now, however, third-party characters commonly appear; that’s a trend that will continue with many of the upcoming 2021 Amiibo releases.

It’s a big day for Amiibo on Friday, March 26, 2021. Three more characters launch in the Super Smash Bros. series, including the long-awaited Banjo & Kazooie Amiibo. Many collectors never thought they’d see the day, what with Xbox manufacturer Microsoft owning the property and all.

March 26 is also the Monster Hunter Rise release date. The game — a Nintendo Switch console exclusive — is launching alongside three tie-in Amiibo. These depict Magnamalo, the game’s premier monster, plus the Palamute and Palico companions.

At the time of writing, Nintendo hasn’t announced its Amiibo plans beyond the first quarter of 2021. More announcements are almost certain to follow, however, especially with several new Pokemon games due out this year.

New Pokemon Snap, Pokemon Briliant Diamond, and Shining Pearl (the latter two being Gen IV remakes) could each get their own dedicated Amiibo. No official word just yet, though, so stay tuned for updates.
