Nintendo developers have been experimenting with new ideas in amiibo. Speaking to IGN, legendary designer Shigeru Miyamoto confirmed the possibility of allowing consumers to order amiibo figures based on their own Mii. amiibo are figures of Nintendo characters that can interact with multiple future Wii U games, including Super Smash Bros., Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and Yoshi’s Woolly World.
“We do have a number of employees internally who want to be able to do something like that, and we’re performing different experiments,” said Miyamoto. “There’s different ways that we could do it and ordering could be one, or there’s different structures that we could use. In fact, there is already an amiibo of my Mii.”
