Nintendo doubled down with the introduction of “Metroid Dread” amiibo that offer players a full extra energy tank and missile reserve tank, giving players who bought the toys an instant advantage and seemingly undermining the survival aspects of the series. Also, this amiibo is the only figure compatible with “Skyward Sword HD.” You can’t even use the Skyward Sword Link amiibo with the title, which is all sorts of confusing and shortsighted. Virtually nobody likes Nintendo’s decision, and numerous YouTubers have torn into the company because of the new piece of “Zelda”-themed plastic.
One can only hope that these quality-of-life-hogging amiibo aren’t the new normal. If not, we might see more downright necessary features locked behind future figures … that are scalp-sniped as soon as they are announced.
