Will Amiibo work with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate?

Nintendo has confirmed that Amiibo will have full functionality within Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. In Smash Bros. WiiU players could train up CPU fighters by linking their Amiibo to the game. For Smash Bros. Ultimate you will be able to transfer the FP date from these fighters across to keep using them in the new game.

Even better, Nintendo has announced that all current variations of character Amiibo will work in Smash Ultimate, even if they're not from the same game. That means your Mario Odyssey wedding suit Mario Amiibo will still work as a Mario Amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Nintendo will be releasing more Amiibo over time to fill out any characters that aren't yet covered.

Is there a Ridley Amiibo?

Yes! Though it wasn't in the Direct itself, Nintendo has revealed a Ridley Amiibo which will be released for the game. he looks pretty fearsome and will come alongside an Inkling Amiibo to match the other new characters. Take a look at the images below:
