Ridley Guide - Moves, Final Smash, amiibo
One of the coolest announcements to come out of Nintendo's E3 2018 Treehouse event was that Metroid villain Ridley would be coming to Super Smash Bros Ultimate. He's quite the beast, standing larger than almost every other character. Ridley is sure to be the new favorite fighter for a ton of players, so we've gathered together everything we know about the character so far. This includes moveset, Final Smash, as well as the details on the amiibo figure.
Ridley Final Smash in Super Smash Bros Ultimate
With every new character comes a new Final Smash special move, and Ridley's is a real powerhouse. He hits his enemy into space, where they are then ploughed down by Samus' space-craft. After being reduced to a mere fly on a windshield, the enemy is then blown apart by one of Ridley's energy beams. It's an awesome sight to behold, and is clearly going to be one of the most spectacular attacks in the game.
Ridley amiibo Super Smash Bros Ultimate
Somehow managing to make the Ridley reveal even cooler is the news that the dragon character will be getting its own amiibo. You can see it pictured below, in all its glory. The Super Smash Bros Ultimate Ridley amiibo will launch December 7, 2018, alongside the game.
