Nintendo promised Super Smash Bros. fans that Amiibo figurines of Cloud and Bayonetta would be launching in 2016, but as the end of the year draws closer, we've heard almost nothing.

We dove deep into answering this question with a discussion segment in last week's episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia.
