HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND MERRY NEW YEAR!!!
Hey everyone! I hope you had a good holiday! A week ago, I received Nintendo's supposed answer to Skylanders, the Amiibo (for the record, I got Fox and Link). They came out on the same day as the newest Super Smash Bros. on Wii U. They are little figurines of Nintendo characters like Mario, Link, and even Little Mac! The Amiibo figures give you cool stuff in the games they are compatible with, like Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, and others.
1. Pros of Amiibo
I like how it saves data on a figurine. I just find that fascinating. Also, the amiibo get smarter as they fight in Super Smash Bros. After a while, they could actually beat me.(Never happening again) That is really cool. You can also customize the amiibo(called Figure Players in Smash Bros.) to your liking. If you like that kind of stuff, then buy one if you have a Wii U.
2. Cons of Amiibo
The Amiibo can only save the data for one game at a time, which means you have to delete the data if you want to use Amiibo for other games. Also, they don't do too much in other games. Smash Bros. is the only place where you get the full experience.
I actually think the Amiibo figures are a good idea, even if they do practically nothing in games other than Smash Bros. They are fun to use and they look nice on my shelf. I highly recommend it if you are a collector, or just likes Nintendo stuff. Stamp of Approval. Score: 18.3/20.
