@rjejr

My guess is that this is directed to NA players who did not bother to catch the Japanese videos.

My second guess is that Nintendo is trying to broaden the appeal of this to people not normally interested in this game. Even the time was odd for a Direct. That would also explain the language used.

And this would fuel my hunch that this may be released as one of (hopefully not THE) Holiday 2015 title. Maybe Nintendo will start to advertise all of their titles, that sounds good to me.

I actually like all ideas, but I voted for Challenges. It adds variety. I played Sonic Transformed a lot more than MK8 precisely because of the variety of missions in World Tour.

With that said, I would love a Pikmin track. They even added amiibo support for Olimar, who won't be released for months.

@JaxonH

Agreed. Bloodborne has also sold a lot, and I see that as a niche game.

I sometimes wonder if Nintendo could have this and another game for holidays. A surprise E3 title like Captain Toad for the families. Of course all hopes point to the amiibo centric game a lot of people want. By that time the cards and the 3DS reader should be released so it will be easier for them.

@rjejr

Cannot help but notice your options are numbers and then you go with a letter :p

If they are showing localized bits then I guess the localization is well underway, so maybe we are getting this sooner than November, which would be awesome. At least in NA, since this seems to be a NOA Direct.

@manu0

This is from Tom's previous article today:

"It's out today in Japan and Nintendo has released a new video that shows it off. As you can see, regardless of the amiibo figure being used it'll load a random demo, and they don't appear to be themed based on the character you scan; Mario won't just unlock Mario games, for example."

@rjejr

Yes, but I would have been regarded as an idiot, a troll or both. Except for people who know me like you :)

Now, I was looking up your avatar and I found that Mr. Red and Mr. Met are way too similar. At first I thought it was the former, but since you are from NY and the color did not match I concluded it was the latter. Sorry for going so offtopic.

@rjejr

Squid amiibo could be in the box as it makes it easier for them than adding all three, or having gender specific bundles, but admittedly that is the least attractive of the three amiibo, maybe that is the reason it cannot be purchased on its own. I hope they start offering all three individually, specially in Europe.

Nice to see a bundle, but (and all three are guilty of this) why can't the console itself be a special edition? They could have gone crazy with the design here. Or even the Gamepad, like Zelda.

Hopefully the exclusivity will help rather than hinder sales.

And I am still waiting for my Scrooge figurine. Maybe after we get the Ducktales reboot.

There isn't even a Goofy or Pluto figurine that I know of. Guess they are only trying to appeal to kids. The first batch felt like Pixar Infinity anyway.

I like it as long as they dont overdo it. MK8 taking 6 months per pack is a great timeframe IMO. And I like the tracks and characters.

For Smash more characters and stages, but because of balancing that takes longer. I agree that we should get new costumes for old characters instead of another Link with a Mii face.

And have those unlockable suits for Splatoon pls! We can use the respective amiibo.

@Damo

Mine froze randomly, and soon after it failed to boot any games. As a matter of fact I gave the console to a friend that was a PS1 technician, he could not fix it and I never bothered to ask it back so I don't even have it.

Been thinking on getting one on ebay, but since these are a bit old I am not sure if it will be worth it.

Only Sega console I had, loved it while it lasted.

It broke down on me twice in 2000, I still have the discs and the VMU. Wonder if I should try to hunt down one and if it will last me.

@rjejr

Good to hear. When you mentioned that they went and unlocked all Smash U characters without waiting for you, even after unlocking them in their own copy of Smash, that sounded a bit selfish, even if it is a small thing.

I know the code cannot be shared. Still the character is not that expensive and thankfully can be gotten on its own.

I don't even have mirror mode so I am never unlocking 200cc.

Nice to see the new costumes, guess I will open one of my Bowser amiibo after all. Looking forward to have a disc on my drive that does not say "Hyrule Warriors".

@rjejr

Hopefully your kids can work it out. From previous comments of yours, I feel they need to share more. And of course that includes sharing with you too!

I got the codes as well, so I will try them later on, when I know the code error is fixed.
