14Amiibo Look Great, But Are Pointless
I loved Disney Infinity, so when Nintendo announced their Amiibo line I was over the moon. Imagining a game like that but with Nintendo’s roster of colorful characters sounded amazing to me. However, it's been three years now and I'm still waiting to be wowed. Nintendo is an innovator and
rarely jumps on the bandwagon, but it seems like they jumped the gun on this genre without a plan. Since launch, most Wii U and 3DS games supported Amiibo in some way, but their uses are very basic. Tap this character in your game to get some gold, or a new hat. It’s basically DLC, but you get a figure with your purchase. I guess that’s cool, but Amiibo could be so much more.
