I'd love to see a Disney Infinity style game that uses amiibo, as I really enjoyed Disney Infinity and I'm still excited to collect amiibo, but don't think that it'd be as surefire a hit as people think. Infinity died a painful death and Skylanders' last iteration performed a lot worse than the one from the year before it. Lego Dimensions is still alive but I can only wonder how much longer it will survive.

Nintendo would do well to just address the stock issues of the amiibo. I need to get back to completing my collection :toot:

I have limited experience of the toys-to-life games (mainly just watched my nephews play!) but they do seem to have dropped out of fashion. My nephews were really into Skylanders (not so much Infinity or Dimensions) but they never mention it now. It seemed like Dimensions was becoming the new leader but I get the impression that it is older players buying the kit now rather than kids.

amiibo just doesn't seem to have had a "big" game built to support the series; usage and functionality feels a bit weak and tacked-on. Personally, my main use of them has been to acquire a few outfits in Kart. I do like the idea of getting additional clothes from them - it works well in the new Miitopia game and I am currently donning a Tom Nook outfit in that :lol: .

Just give me Snake and a chance to buy a Bayonetta and I'll be happy.
