Nintendo may not have expected its amiibo program to go over so well. With popular amiibos flying off the shelves at rates that supply couldn’t keep up with, Nintendo fans felt more than a little slighted by Nintendo’s handling of the situation.
But since it was so wildly successful, and with a slew of new amiibos promised this year, maybe there are some others that should get the mini-figure treatment – and possibly a character spot in Super Smash Bros WiiU? Nintendo may have to exercise some creative licensing agreement magic, but their fans wouldn’t be able to get enough of these classic characters.
How badass would it be to have a little amiibo of Final Fantasy‘s number one slugger? Forget Cloud and all the other characters, this lady deserves the amiibo treatment. Plus, she would be a great addition to Super Smash Bros. They’ve obviously shown no shame in needlessly cloning characters like Pit and Mario, so a Little Mac clone with some materia specials would fit right in.
The rest of the Final Fantasy VII cast wouldn’t do poorly as amiibos, either, but there’s a certain…*ahem*…appeal to Tifa that would make her a perfect amiibo.
