Fans of Nintendo’s new collectible Amiibo’s have been worried of late about particular models scarcity but, Nintendo could have plans to re-release sold out models – but not as you’d expect.
Nintendo producer Shigeru Miyamoto has hinted that discontinued models could return to market not as statues, but cards. We’re not making promises for certain figures, but the way ‘amiibo’ is designed is that certain games can have ‘amiibo’ specifically for that game,” he told the Associated Press. “Other games can take advantage of past ‘amiibo’ that developers want to make their game compatible with. In the future, we have the option, if certain ‘amiibo’ figures are no longer available in stores, to release an ‘amiibo’ in card form with the same functionality.”
What do you think? Is this a good work around, or are you not interested in the amiibo’s functionality, but rather the aesthetic.
