Pic of the day. The legendary hero Riki appears as an Assist Trophy and in Shulk’s Final Smash!! As an Assist Trophy, he uses many arts like Happy Happy, Freezinate, and Yoink! He sounds a bit like Tingle…but don’t worry, Tingle will make an appearance too. By the way, a cursor will appear above Assist Trophies and Pokémon to indicate which fighter is its ally. Now you can tell right off the bat who it belongs to!!

Reggie Talks Amiibo Launch Lineup + How They Differ From Activision & Disney

Amiibo 990 1024x559 Reggie Talks Amiibo Launch Lineup + How They Differ From Activision & Disney

The following is coming from Reggie Fils-Aime in an interview with USNews:

“We wanted to make sure that the breadth of characters we had for the initial ‘amiibo’ line-up supported the fan favorites, as well as showcase the variety of people Nintendo speaks to — from kids to adults. For example, you’ve got a character like Marth from the ‘Fire Emblem’ series. We thought exposing Marth to a wider collection of consumers through ‘amiibo’ made a ton of sense, but, of course, we had to have Mario, Princess Peach and Donkey Kong in that initial line-up, as well.

Our vision is to have these ‘amiibo’ figures be your playable friends that allow you to enhance the overall experience. It’s a different approach from Activision and Disney, which is more to unlock something in the game. You’re going to want to have your ‘amiibo’ figure because it’s going to allow you to enhance your skills, upgrade your character and take the experience over to a friend’s house.
