Nintendo of America President, Reggie Fils-Aime stated that Amiibos are completely different from the popular Skylanders and Disney Infinity figurines when he spoke to IGN. This article goes into all of the details.
Not to sound negative, but this is starting to sound like pay-to-play/win.
Reggie is full of stupid comments wait not stupid its just a lie.
Why do people not realize they are getting scammed with these figures? Its micro transactions but much worse.
Amiibo's are their own exclusive functionality. They don't affect the core aspect of Smash Bros. whatsoever, and they are confirmed to not be allowed in public online games, only local and online with friends.
Completely different is just Reggie pushing it too far. The only difference is it's crossplay compatible. It's like saying Xperia and Galaxy phones are completely different. Yeah, right!
It different because it will work across multiple games not just one
Basically your own CPU. I'll buy no more than 3.... maybe 4.
Let me get this straight,does that mean i can take LINK and put him in another game and use him as playable character?..If so then that's AWESOME!
Just a cash grab nothing more. These will be forgotten in two years.
With POKEMON? I think not..
This is micro transactions taken to the extreme.
You are guys are really grasping for straws at this point. You got to find something to downplay Nintendo's achievements no matter what they are.
The question is for a game like Smash Brothers. Can the other characters be used without being forced 2 buy these things ? Or will the game only ship with the option 2 use your Mii unless you buy these things
These are not required to play as the characters.
Yes they can be played without. You can play the entire game with the entire roster without buying a single Amiibo. As for those wondering how they will affect online, and if the game becomes pay to win, amiibos will not be available for online play.
