The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes is one Nintendo game that won’t feature amiibo support. The developers have told IGN that they have no intention of shoehorning amiibo support in the game as it is simply unnecessary and isn’t a natural fit for the game. Here’s what the game’s director Hiromasa Shikata had to say.
“I think it’s really something as simple as this game isn’t a natural fit for it. I think [that’s] because we’re focused on giving players the ability to choose different outfits to impact their experience within the game. We didn’t think amiibo added anything other than what games with it are already doing. There’s no reason to shoehorn it in.”
