“Amiibos still seem off. I think it is because they are doing the wrong job. Nintendo is using them mostly for DLC. Is this what they should be used for? Wouldn’t they be more exciting if they were used for PERFORMANCE in the game? For example, imagine a Magic Mushroom Amiibo. Any game you use it in, your character would get bigger, stronger, and have more hit points. Using the Magic Mushroom Amiibo in Metroid Wii U could have Samus get larger with more hit points. You couldn’t use it often. It is a CHEAT.”It seems that Nintendo is doing this with the Kirby, MetaKnight, & King Dedede amiibos for Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. The Kirby amiibo figure allows Kirby to activate the “Star Dash” ability at any time; the Meta Knight amiibo figure gives Kirby greater attack power during his touch-activated spinning attack; and the King Dedede Amiibo figure gives Kirby extra hitpoints.Basically, the amiibo figures act as powerups and the Kirby amiibo almost breaks the game, just as you were sugesting.
But it is a Kirby game. Why would anyone need to cheat in the first place!!!????
A Dark Souls hard Metroid… yes. But Kirby? No. Putting in cheats for Kirby is like bringing sand to the beach!
