Hands-on with Nintendo's final Amiibo designs - Eurogamer

Eurogamer:
"This month Nintendo is set to dive head first down the warp pipe from its regular world of virtual characters into a new era of physical toys.

The new Amiibo range arrives in the UK on 28th November, but Nintendo has a long-term plan for the NFC figures that stretches far beyond launch (when they will only interact with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U). "

Just got done listening to a favorite podcast of mine, and I'm honestly disappointed that hearing a lot of people upset and complaing about the way the final build looks...I mean to nitpick that much about a toy figure that u place on ur gamepad when needed is a bit pompuose....I want to get every single one of them regardless of what they look like, Nintendo's not going to make them look herendus for crying out loud lol I think they look just fine IMO, its the mere fact to have them all and pay tribute to Nintendo while doing so :)

I feel bad for Smash fans. Those guys have been trying to maintain the scene active for 20+ years and get nothing but hate from Nintendo.

RoseSapphire430d ago

Sakurai explains how he and Nintendo still don't understand how the internet works.

FTFY

Exactly, online play would be wonderful on Smash if Nintendo gave a crap about their online services. To be fair though, Nintendo's online offerings would be great if it were 15-20 years ago lol.

I've always said that Nintendo is either innovative and ahead of the curve
or 20 years behind, no in between

CrimsonWing69430d ago

I’m sorry, but if a game is MP then there’s no f*cking argument that can justify no online MP. What he says about competition being different from just playing with friends shows me how out of touch these people are.

It’s not until a new generation that understands things steps in to clean-house that we’ll see some evolution here.

Vanfernal430d ago

His argument is nonsensical. "You'd be limited to just playing people from your region". As opposed to being limited to playing people FROM YOUR COUCH!

CrimsonWing69429d ago

What I don’t get is how do you not have competition and experience the same issue if you have a friend that’s way better than you?

GoodGuy09430d ago

It's a big fighting game so online multiplayer is a must. Competitive smash is the only thing I see fun in these games anymore asides from the big character reveals, singleplayer is laughable and you ain't gunna have people over for couch gaming much.

If Nintendo makes a new smash, it needs a huge evolution for singleplayer/couch play to be enjoyable for me any more. But we all know they'll just do a deluxe edition for their next console lol. They really need to up their servers as well.

NotoriousWhiz430d ago (Edited 430d ago )

I can't imagine Nintendo producing a better smash game than ultimate. Roll it forward with a deluxe edition maybe with an extra character or two and call it a day.

Some other developers can try pushing platform fighters to the next level, because I don't think Nintendo is up to the task.

DarthZoolu429d ago

They already created a better smash brothers game than ultimate when they created melee

masterfox430d ago

he sounds more like is trying to justify Nintendo ineptitude to create a proper network infrastructure in order to Smash Brothers work properly online.
