Why Yooka-Laylee amiibo is a realistic possibility...

Postby Luma Party » Sun May 31, 2015 6:44 pm

I'm just going to write this for the fun of it.
[hr]
If you look at the some of the series of amiibo, they can be really small.
Mario Party 10 got 8 amiibo, 3 of which are different versions of Mario.
Splatoon got 3 amiibo, all different Inklings.
Yoshi's Woolly World is getting 3 Yoshis made of yarn.
The new Chibi-Robo game announced today, is getting an amiibo.
So, by the time Yooka-Laykee rolls around, I'm sure Nintendo would be open to third-party partnerships with amiibo.
Especially a game that will be successful like Yooka-Laylee.
It could even be as small as just one amiibo, for Yooka & Laylee.
The one big issue, is the fact it won't have a retail release.
It's good that Playtonic is focusing on the development, but if someone approaches them about a retail release on the Wii U, PS4 and Xbox One, they should go for it.

The only thing being in the way is the fact that it is not a Nintendo exclusive. I think that seriously hurts the chance of it happening.

However, the small series like Splatoon and Chibi Robot are a good point. (didn't even know about Chibi Robot)
Possibility, yes. But I think it is still unlikely. The chances would probably be better with a physical release...

Anyway, I am fine with just some figurines. They don't need NFC capabilities...

As much as I would love a Y-L amiibo or two, it hurts me just thinking about how impossible they would be to obtain. :cry:
The amiibo subreddit would have to invent a rarity label more rare than "unicorn." :lol:
No, not all Xbox owners are dudebros who love grey-and-brown PvP FPSes. Please feel free to quit stereotyping now.

Won't non Wii U users be mad? Like when Wii U fans never got anything extra in Shovel Knight.

Wii U gets an exclusive amiibo and unlock special things
Xboxone gets an banjo kazooie cameo (if microsoft allows)
Steam version gets nothing sepcial
Playstation 4 gets something i guess...

I'm not sure amiibos could really work. That means they'd either have to purposely make the other versions worse by keeping content out of them or make content that's standard in the other versions unlockable with amiibos just to make it as good as them. That means that the other versions will be worse. I'm not a fan of when game developers intentionally make one port of a game better than the other(s) when there's no real reason why the other(s) couldn't be just as good. They should all be the same level of quality. Unless they where to do what Soul Caliber 2 did and make each version have it's own exclusive content that's copyrighted by other companies.

I reckon they approached Nintendo about it before the kick starter began, either Nintendo laughed at Playtonic and told them go @$%&"@&%! Or Nintendo agreed to announce them on the Nintendo Direct , right after the Kickstartee ended.
