I'm not into amibo but I don't mind if you incorporate it into your games aslong as it doesn't affect gameplay or hides content.

I have an idea. How about have the Donkey Kong amiibo give the character a coconut gun, and the Diddy Kong amiibo give the character a pair of peanut popguns? I think a DK64 reference would be particularly fitting, since it was also a sort of spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie.



Anyway, I assume the game will involve some sort of long ranged projectile weapon (like the eggs in B-K), and the Kong weapons could be a slight retooling of that.

Hey guys, I made a thread about it, but I will put it in here. I wrote an article

My idea I had though was maybe the amiibo could store memories, so if characters had interacted with each other from previous game they would remember in future games, adding a little Easter egg of dialogue, or something.

I just bought 9 amiibos yesterday... I need help...

Besides my eminent problem with this figures, what if Playtonic partners with some toys to life company that is already positioned to do their amiibos?

Activision could be a good option, I know the tend to milk their franchises but the Skylanders really pull money from a lot of parents around the world! they aim for multi-platforms and of course they will only manage the amiibo section not the game itself.


With Nintendo selling amiibos like crazy they need a franchise that can be big enough to give Nintendo and Disney some competition.

Ukulele can be that franchise.

I personally don't see Amiibos happening for third-party developers, especially from an "indie" studio like Playtonic.

Amiibos are ONLY for Nintendo consoles. How would Playtonic ever release them for other consoles?

I personally don't want amiibos getting involved at all. If they were working with Nintendo then sure, but they are not owned by Nintendo. People seem to forget that, and are treating it as if it were a Nintendo game. It's not a Nintendo game though, it's a Playtonic game.
Since it has been confirmed on all consoles it seems extremely unlikely that there would be any amiibo related features (which I think is a good thing). I would also be skeptical about Playtonic making their own equivalent of amiibo, but this also seems unlikely as they would need a reader that worked with all consoles (like the Skylanders portal, which uses the USB port), and that just seems like a waste of resources, since it isn't a requirement for the game.

An Amiibo seems to be a tool for Nintendo to further stretch the dollars of its consumers by limiting otherwise accessible content; much like DLC that is already loaded onto a game when it launches.(that type of "DLC" only downloads access to content not "new content")

In my view, in order to justifiably implement an Amiibo feature the game would need to limit content to be "unlocked" and that would unfairly limit the other platforms with out that.

Bottom-line, I can't see this feature benefiting Playtonic or WiiU enthusiast; it wasn't built to be an extension of interaction or immersion with players but another avenue for holding off content for purchasing.

I don't care what they actually do for the game; I want a Yooka and Laylee amiibo. :3
I'm sure they could think of some good use for it.

I don't like amiibo as a form of unlocking content in-game. I don't really want to see that happen in YL.
I like them as collectible figures though. But that would work without the NFC functionality imo.

If Shovel Knight can have an amiibo, so can Yooka-Laylee.
