Indeed! Will you be buy thing figurines???

mii-gamer1663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

Yep, I'll buy all the 40-50 figurines, one for each character. They will no doubt be used to store the data for the newly introduced custom moves and your smash power points.

Which will essentially allow players to bring their figurines to friends house and play as the custom characters without any hassle and compare rankings.

Brilliant move by nintendo. Really brilliant!

acharlez1663d ago

SO brilliant. This will be HUGE.

Could Wii U be making a comeback??

mii-gamer1663d ago

I can't say for certain, it will no doubt help. So many factors to consider, however, if Nintendo can market the perks behind the feature, and in conjunction with the brand strength of smash bros - it could easily draw the market that the skylanders series has paved.

This will be too expensive. Once again Nintendo is sidetracked into finding uneccessary gimmicks.

@mikeslemonade Unnecessary gimmicks that worked almost perfectly for both Skylanders and Disney Infinity...?

Which figurine are you looking forward to most?

@Mikeslemonade: When has video games as a hobby ever been considered cheep? Also you don't NEED to buy every figure. You could buy one or two that you like and call it a day. Nintendo is not holding a gun to your head saying you MUST buy every single character that we put out. You still have freedom of choice.

You could TRY to be a little excited with the idea of how these could be used and to what effect they will have with Nintendo's franchises.

Dude, don't even try to reason with him. This is his routine: "anything the other company does is bad, and if it's hard to find the negative aspect, let's find a little fault and exaggerate it".

This kind of people don't deserve a reply. Just bubble him down, and let's pray he's gone for a few weeks.

OT: I really could dig this. I'm not a fan of having a lot figurines, but if they also have an utility, they get into my radar instantly. Looking forward for a Marth figurine.

My bank account is not ready, though my body may be.

acharlez1663d ago

Ditto. Bring on the toys!!

knifefight1663d ago

NFC? Will it also have the AFC? And will their champions play each other in the last game of the year?

acharlez1663d ago

AFC, UFC, WWE, NFP... you name it!

Awesome news, though my wallet might not think so.

Jeez Nintendo. What you doin to me? My wife has just given birth to my firstborn son and now im gonna need to clothe him from charity shops because you are doing this!? Wont somebody please.think of the children.

mydyingparadiselost1663d ago (Edited 1663d ago )

Some advice as a poor father- think outside the box. Why pay for the toys AND clothes when you can just cloth him with the NFC characters. This also gives you an excuse to buy even more characters when winter comes because bundling up is important :)

weekev151663d ago

Bubs up helpful, that is amazing advice.

deafdani1663d ago

I'm going to be a first-time father soon, as well, but I got it all figured out.

I will just wait until all the figurines are out, then trade my son for them.
