*im new to the whole forums thing in general so hi & im on a wiiu
sing me up for a retail physical copy! still have my NES,SNES,N64,NGC & WII (as well as my segas,playstations & xboxs & i still own almost all the games!)
physical retail is important to a company as it further bonds the consumers nostalgia years later & can highten cultural significance witch i feel is becoming less & less in the digital age especially with bad DLC practices & other shady industry practices. & its good to still have the option of physically feeling & owning the game most kickstarters are digital only & its sad to see such awesome games limited to just one distribution option.
as for amiibo?
it would be cool to have amiibo of Playtonic characters, i'd personaly want amiibo support for little extras using nintendos character based amiibo! EXAMPLE: scan a luigi amiibo everytime you boot up the game & it activates hidden 8-bit luigis in every level to look for. things like this would make for great nintendo exclusive content & utilizing the hardware to its potential!
one disappointment of amiibo (other then the lack of production & scalping ) is for Example: mario kart 8 only supports few amiibo when theres going to be an entire around 50ish smash characters based amiibo! why on earth are they all not used!? is baffling! especially since all they do is unlock a simple mii character themed outfit! i think every amiibo should be used especially in a major nintendo game.
If Playtonic use amiibo for P.U. i'd love for them to at least use every smash themed amiibo to do somthing fun & simple (like the luigi example above) although im not shure how realistic it is because of copyright licensing issues but dag it nintendo amiibo is a major platform of your hardware so it be stupid of them not to see the value of well giveing people more of a reson to buy amiibo & increase there functionality witch will benefit both nintendo & playtonic.
just my thoughts
