So, it would seem that Nintendo might not be inherently evil after all. In a world of microtransictions and DLC, as a consumer it might feel that getting through paywalls to access all of a game’s content is somewhat unfair. Nintendo is releasing 3 wedding themed Amiibo alongside of Super Mario Odyssey this month.
In an incredibly surprising move, Nintendo has announced via their website that you won’t need these Amiibo to unlock the outfits. I can only hope this is a trend more games follow in the future. I like this old school method of unlocking things. Being able to purchase these outfits feels like a soft cheat in a way.
Of course…this doesn’t mean that there are other outfits that will come along that will require Amiibo….
