At the very end of the latest Smash broadcast, Masahiro Sakurai showed us our first look at the Banjo-Kazooie, Byleth (Fire Emblem) and Terry Board (Fatal Fury / King of Fighters) amiibo.
Unfortunately, you’ll have to hold out until 2021. Sakurai notes how he hopes everyone can be patient and also mentioned how Byleth would only be released in the character’s P1 form.
Will you be adding any of these amiibo to your collection when they arrive next year? Tell us down below.
When he’s not paying off a loan to Tom Nook, Liam likes to report on the latest Nintendo news and admire his library of video games. His favourite Nintendo character used to be a guitar-playing dog, but nowadays he prefers to hang out with Judd the cat.
Banjo-Kazooie, of course, one of my favourite games from the N64. I already have the big statue from First 4 Figures and the figure from Totaku.
Got the Joker one for my daughter. They all look good but I won’t get any of those despite being a big fan of their own individual games.
I only get the Amiibo for characters I care about, so will be adding Terry Bogard to my collection on release (^_^)
I think that the Banjo-Kazooie and Joker amiibos are the only ones released that don’t have their respective games released on Switch (cameos on Smash are not the same as the games themselves) Stop teasing us and give us Persona 5 and Banjo Kazooie already
Yup. I blame COVID. If it wasn’t for that, we’d be getting both Byleths. Oh well, I prefer the male version anyways.
One no female byleth, two OMG the banjo amiibo looks great can’t wait for steve amiibo.
I always say I’m finished with amiibo and then some cool ones come out. I got Joker and Hero but I may get the whole DLC line of figures.
@korosanbo Well the distinction here is that Banjo does originate on a Nintendo console. Joker remains the only playable character in the entire roster now that doesn’t have any of his home series’ main entries playable on any Nintendo hardware, including his game of origin. Considering how important Persona is to SIE as a “platform holder” whatever Morita-san said meant, I don’t see Persona 5 getting a port to anything but PC.
Also, I’m fine with Byleth only having a P1 amiibo. The P2s were interesting and cool, but was opening a scary can of worms for 100% collectors. P2 Corrin is still hard to come by for those still looking for her.
Banjo-Kazooie looks good.Byleth-meh, just another Fire Emblem amiibo,they all loks kinda samey to me(dudes/girls with swords,just meh).
@korosanbo better yet, give us Rare Replay! I want Banjo and Perfect Dark to come home
@TheFrenchiestFry Banjo Kazooie is only available on N64 and not on the Switch
Since a spinoff of P5 was released on Switch, I don’t think Persona is exclusive on PS anymore (Plus it originated on Nintendo consoles anyways Shin Megami if which is the first Persona was released on the Super Famicom)
@JR150 Yeah! All DLC was supposed to be out by, i think, February 2021… And we are barely getting #2.And amiibos as well.
I’ll definitely be adding the Banjo Kazooie amiibo to my collection. I just got the DQ Hero. The rest don’t really intrest me.
@korosanbo Atsushi Morita is the chairman of Sony Interactive Entertainment, and the platform holder quote was used specifically in the context of talking about Atlus’ relationship with Sony regarding the Persona series.
Also Persona spinoffs on non-Sony consoles have been a thing for like 8 years. Scramble being on Switch without Persona 5 is just like Persona 4 Arena being on Xbox 360 without ports for Persona 3 and Persona 4 despite the Arena games being canon sequels to both, or Persona Q being a 3DS exclusive series of games.
I wouldn’t hold my breath at all for anything except a PC port of Persona 5 at this point. Scramble is practically business as usual for Atlus and P5 being PlayStation exclusive did not stop it at all from being successful and bringing new players to the series.
