Just recently we shared a video of Shigeru Miyamoto impersonating an amiibo, sort of, which certainly demonstrated his awesomeness rather nicely. It evidently wasn't a one-off, as Nintendo of Europe has released another neat video with a different development star.
This time around it's the public face of Splatoon's development team, Tsubasa Sakaguchi - his pose is somewhat trickier to figure out and execute as he has the task of balancing on one foot.
It's a neat mini-series of videos from Nintendo of Europe, in any case, reminding us of the lighter side of senior figures within the company.
Pretty sure he is Sheik but his leg is too far out. It is cute that Nintendo is doing this. I love seeing the people behind the corporate machine.
The man is drunk! 😉 Lol good stuff Nintendo
i can't see the pose among my amiibo here. drats. i swear, there has to be some happy juice served at nintendo hq for them to do this. someone ring up platinum. the designer for bayonetta was smokin hot and looked like a model. she ought to do her pose.
...So who wants to volunteer to do Smash!Luigi? Just cut the film right before the person hits the ground.
@Ryu_Niiyama Luigi would be really fun to see!
I love this playful marketing stunt that Nintendo is doing.
I love Nintendo
@KingofSaiyans I'm imagining a Thwomp-like "URGH" to be the sound heard once they hit the ground...
@whodatninja this video series has the potential for hidden comedy given some of the amiibo poses and possible lack of flexibility of people that work sedentary jobs. Wii Fit Trainer?
It looks the most like the Smash Bros Sheik Amiibo. Which is a really nice looking one in my opinion.
The upper body screams Sheik, but the lower body screams Cut The Taping Now!
My guess is Shiek
Maybe Captain Falcon? He has his leg out in his Smash artwork and amiibo pose.
Love these videos, I wonder whos going to do the Zero suit Samus, Star Fox or even the Luigi or Wii Fit Trainer ones?
It's gotta be Captain Falcon though his arms aren't quite right.
@Ryu_Niiyama Hmm, they would need someone quite limber to do her pose. So definitely not Reggie
I look forward to the inevitable Gren Ninja, Donkey Kong and Sonic poses!
@BluStreak Hand placement is wrong for Falcon. one arm should be back and the other in a fist near his head. I think he may have been looking at both and forgot which one he wanted to do...so you have this weird hybrid.
@whodatninja I called it! The next amiibo video is wii fit trainer!
@Ryu_Niiyama Hah, I thought of you! Got a psychic over here
