    Cripes.

    Oh, and apparently the retro three-pack is up again on Gamestop.

    Tom Nook should be bundled with the game, AND part of the three-pack, AND sold individually.

    You should be basically unable to avoid him.

    I don't mind the 3-packs only because I want them all anyway. I think bundles are slightly cheaper than buying them individually.

    Nook is weak in AC:NL. The master of the hard sell lost his edge and he asks if you want upgrades now.

    Now that they can track things like play time through the internet, I think that if you don't play for a week they should just charge you for a Resetti amiibo and mail it to you without telling you.

    I wonder how hard the come by the Animal Crossing cards will be on launch day. Ideally since they're easier and cheaper to produce Nintendo could flood retailers with 'em, but knowing amiibo...well, who knows what the hell could go down?

    I would get a KK amiibo if there were a version that played KK songs when you pressed it.

    So I've ignored buying a Sonic amiibo for months now, I've ran into them several times and said "yeah no thanks"

    I bought one today

    Putting him in Mario Maker is too crazy to ignore

    So a couple of questions

    1. Is the 8 bit modern Mario only in the WiiU bundle or is he separate and when are we getting him? I know classic Mario is on 9/11

    2. When you use an Amiibo in Mario Maker is the character just a skin or do they retain their original move sets? Like can you spindash as Sonic, shoot as Mega Man or Samus, or use your sword as Link, Marth, Lucina?

  • Mr. GMr. G Registered User regular
    It's a skin for Mario

  • cloudeaglecloudeagle Registered User regular
    8-Bit Modern Mario is only in the Wii U bundle for now in the U.S.

    But if you get twitchy, you can try importing him from Japan or Europe.

    Hot damn do I want that amiibo. Shovel Knight is an amazing game to boot!
    If they're doing Shovel Knight they HAVE to do Shield Knight. He can't be alone forever!

  • maximumzeromaximumzero I...wait, what? New Orleans, LARegistered User regular
    The link seems to be dead, so I assume it's the Shovel Knight amiibo that was rumored.

    Was an actual amiibo this time or was it still that mockup that's floating around?

    It was an actual Amiibo an English Game location offered for preorder. It was in special Yacht Club Games packaging, so no promises he'll be in Smash.

    Yeah, that's what I assumed what would happen all along.

    I could see Nintendo doing small print runs of some of their more successful Indie partnerships like Shovel Knight and Commander Video, but the prevailing internet assumption that "AMIIBO = SMASH CHARACTER" is a bit overblown and frankly incorrect.

    Yeah, this seems to be just an amiibo, not a smash announce. Which is totally fine, it looks awesome!

    Plus they could always still add him at some point to Smash - there are already duplicates of a bunch of Smash amiibos with the Mario series
