As you probably already know, yesterday marked the release of three brand new amiibo for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Perhaps the highlight was Rare's bear and bird duo from the legendary Banjo-Kazooie series.

A lot of superfans out there are now posting pictures of this particular figurine on social media, and well, some individuals seem to be more interested in its base. For whatever reason, they're impressed by the Microsoft copyright - noting how "interesting" it is to see the name of the American tech giant on a Nintendo product.

It's now got Smash players wondering what the base of Steve might look like. As explained by the Twitter user TheKrazyStew, Mojang is featured in the character credits of the game, whereas Banjo's was just labelled with Microsoft. So brace yourself for similar social media reactions whenever the Minecraft amiibo drops.

In case you're wondering, the other recently released amiibo, Terry Bogard - from the Fatal Fury and King of FIghters series - has SNK Corporation on its base.

Can you believe a Microsoft-owned character is now an amiibo? Were you at all surprised by the underside of the Banjo & Kazooie amiibo? Have you even unboxed yours? Leave a comment down below.
