If these Amiibo things are optional and are only sold for the novelty (as in, you can get the benefits without paying roughly $20 for a Smash character), then I think they're okay. I won't be buying any, but they'd be optional. If they're mandatory to get characters, then I think they're a slap in the face to gamers, much like map packs and other "extras" that should already come with a game.

I could consider it to be a tangible form of Nintendo-quality DLC.

You will need an amiibo to advantage of the amiibo-specific features in Smash Bros., but I can confidently say that you will still get a complete Smash game without an amiibo.

As long as they pull it off well, and make the content worth the cost. If that's the case, then I'd way rather have an awesome figure for my shelf than a card with a code for my garbage can.

Don't let GameStop rip you off. Support used gaming and check out 99Gamers. Best trading service I've used.

The only games I've ever played that had "map packs" are Sanctum 2 and Fire Emblem: Awakening. I didn't get into Sanctum 2, but Fire Emblem: Awakening's map packs didn't seem like withheld content to me.

So what characters, items, etc. would YOU like to see as an amiibo figure? Here are some of my favorite characters I'd love to see as figurines:

King Dedede
Untitled
One my most favorites Nintendo characters ever, his chances of having an amiibo are incredibly high since Nintendo plans on making an amiibo for every playable character in Smash Bros.

Nabbit
Untitled
Quickly taking place as my favorite Mario character, I would love to see him have a figure. Best chances of Nabbit getting one would be if he were to be playable in Mario Party 10 (a game that'll have amiibo figures). Hopefully Nabbit will get more involved in the Mario series.

Midna
Untitled
Best chances of her getting an amiibo figure is if Hyrule Warriors were to get amiibo support in the future. It's certainly possible as Mario Kart 8 doesn't have amiibo figures NOW but has been confirmed to have amiibo support next year. So I don't see why other games can't get amiibo support later on after their release.

Jack
Untitled
I DEFINITELY see the inevitable Animal Crossing U having amiibo support, it just fits too well. And so I hope most of the special event characters have amiibo figures, and they could even release around the same time as their respective holidays for a limited time. So imagine a Jack amiibo coming out during October, or a Jingle amiibo releasing during December.

The Wonderful 101
Untitled
As I've stated several times in the past, The Wonderful 101 is my most favorite game ever. I always have my fingers crossed for a sequel, even Hideki Kamiya says he wants to do one. If so I hope the main 7 leaders (pictured) were to each get amiibo figures. I'd go insane with happiness if this were to actually happen!

So who would you like to have an amiibo of?

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Bayonetta so far.

I do agree however that the Wonderful101 characters are PERFECT for amiibo. I'm really surprised they're not already on the drawing board. Beyond that, the number one amiibo I would l like to have is Aurora, however since she's not a Nintendo-exclusive, that'll never happen.

I wonder if anything about F-Zero Amiibo figures will show up cause if that doesn't, then we can all agree that they forgot F-Zero completely.

Only the entry-level Skylanders are nine quid. The more popular ones are normally up to £15, so that seems okay to me. I expect my daughter will want Pikachu; for myself probably Donkey Kong - I like to stick with the classics!

These are about the same size as the £9 ones though the giants are larger and have movable parts (amiibo's don't seem to).

There was mention of amiibos potentially being larger, so I expect we will be seeing Giants level ones eventually.

I was thinking of the current Swap Force series when I posted that original comment, but their do seem to be non-swap/giant ones in different price ranges in the shops, so I get the sense there's some kind of tiering going on, though it might be retailer-driven rather than RRP from the manufacturer. Online purchases seem a lot more consistent in price, but the figures seem to have different levels of popularity/rarity, so again it seems £9-12 for smaller unarticulated figures from what I've seen. I don't doubt something similar will happen with amiibo.

One thing amiibo has going for it over Skylanders is that you don't need the figure to play the character and the figure could have some kind of yet-to-be-determined ancillary use in games they don't appear in. The latter makes even figures that are likely to be unpopular worthwhile.

http://www.toynews-online.biz/news/read/over-72-million-kids-...

Entertainment, media and technology market research firm Interpret has revealed that over 72 million children are interested in owning 'smart toys'.

Based off its syndicated GameByte study, Interpret has found that smart toys, ones that integrate physical toys and video games, have a high chance for success across most major kids game markets, with more than 72 million kids expressing interest in ownership.

“The US already has a robust market for smart toys such as Skylanders and Disney Infinity,” said Michael Cai, senior VP of research at Interpret.

“Strong growth opportunities also exist in emerging gaming markets such as China, Brazil, and Russia, where more than 90 per cent of gamers ages six to 12 are interested in smart toys.”

The firm also believes new entrants such as Nintendo Amiibo and LEGO Fusion will boost the market further.

“We tested interest in an extensive list of current and potential smart toy brands and even prior to the Amiibo announcement, smart toys based on Nintendo characters were among the most desired smart toys in the US, Europe and Brazil,” added Jason Coston, research manager at Interpret.

“LEGO’s mobile focus will position it particularly well in emerging markets where consoles face strong headwinds.”

Sorry to bump this thread, but I've found out that each amiibo will only retain one save file from any game. This means that if I were to use Yoshi on Super Smash Bros. and then Yoshi's Wooly World, I'd lose data for the former. If you want to have multiple saves, you have to go out and buy more of the same figurine.

That is even worse ^^ They could just store it on the console as well so that that doesn't need to happen.
