Nintendo Changes The Game With Super Mario Odyssey Amiibo Unlockables
Nintendo has found great success in the toys-to-life sector of the gaming industry, with their Amiibo figures which have sold more than 10 million individual figures. The figures have given fans a cool line of merchandise that can augment their game experience as an added bonus. However, many have criticized some games for locking specific pieces of content behind the purchase of certain Amiibo, which in some cases have pertained to difficulty in finding Amiibo figures. Many were cautious that the same case might happen with the upcoming Super Mario Odyssey Amiibo unlockables, but now Nintendo has commented on the matter to calm these fears.
Nintendo has updated the official website for Super Mario Odyssey with information about the Amiibo support for the game. Mostly, this information talks about the new Amiibo being specifically released for the game, such as the in-game bonuses that can be accessed with the new wedding-themed Mario, Bowser and Peach Amiibo. These access the wedding outfit for their figurine’s respective character, as well as some status bonuses. In addition, Nintendo has confirmed that while any Amiibo are compatible with the game, all content is accessible in Super Mario Odyssey without Amiibo.
This will come as a pleasant surprise to those who bought Amiibo to unlock exclusive content, such as the hard mode in Metroid: Samus Returns. It is nice to see Nintendo making the entirety of Super Mario Odyssey available to all players. What do you guys think about the Super Mario Odyssey Amiibo unlockables being accessible for non-Amiibo owners? Let us know in the comments below!
