With Zelda wiiU coming out I'm curious to see the game dynamics and how the amiibos work in an RPG.
(I haven't played twighlight princess so I don't know how it works currently)

In addition, I have an idea for future games:

Use the main character(s) of an RPG as amiibos. Personalize their stats, abilities, and inventory - save it to your amiibos. Swipe the amiibo and adventure in the world!

Does this sound fun to you? Is this in the works, if not, why?
any input is appreciated

So basically how the Shovel Knight amiibo works in single player?

Save it for...what?

I haven't played Shovel Knight but it's great to know that the game has this feature!

Yes, the idea is to save it and play on multiple files and systems.

Also, amiibos could come with increased stats or unique abilities as incentive.

Depending on the game there could be additional functions or incentives. Any ideas on this?

The incentive would be the figure itself tbh. I don't think they need to excessively make locked content.

Zelda games aren't RPGs though.

They'll likely work similarly to other action-adventure games where they're compatible.

@newto12: Sounds pretty much like what a Nintendo version of Skylanders/Infinity/Dimensions would seem like.

OK! Let's talk about additional battle functions possibilities:

1. Current party vs. amiibo party - local just like ssb4

2. ONLINE battles - i'm not sure whether this is counter to the ideas of amiibos in the first place, as one great aspect of amiibos is to share in person.

3. STORY mode function - add amiibo to current party in single player.
