Capcom Almost Made Resident Evil Themed Amiibo

Capcom’s Ryota Niitsuma has told Japanese publication Famitsu that the team were going to go ahead and create Resident Evil themed amiibo. The team got to the point of making 3D models and could pose them. The amiibo they were considering making were of HUNK and Lady HUNK from Resident Evil Revelations. Niizuma told Famitsu that “various circumstances” caused Capcom to decide against it, but the idea could be revisited in the future.


Thanks to Nintendo First Order Reaver for the tip!


  1. Would have been the most useless toys to life items to ever exist since CrapCon no longer support Nintendo since with new games! I guess they were gonna cut content out of the ONLY TWO RE games they released on the switch and lock said cut content behind the amiibo paywall, because that’s what CrapCon is good at!
    At this point even if they create a brand new MM game I’m just sick of this damn company and just want Capcom to die off already, I’m truly sick as F!@# of their constant lies and deceit!

      1. Because we haven’t gotten any of the major Street Fighter games after SSF2: The New Challengers, SFA2, and USF2: The Final Challengers.

        No Street Fighter Alpha 3 (unless you count the GBA port), no Street Fighter III (period), and no Ultra Street Fighter IV (the definitive version of SF4). Oh, and no Street Fighter V.

        1. It’s a game that Sony helped fund. Therefore it’s exclusive. Just like Bayonetta 2 is a Wii U exclusive because Ninty helped to fund the game for their system. I guess you can always beg Sony to let Capcom release the game to Switch just like people had to beg Nintendo to let Platinum release Bayo2 on PS4 & Xbox One.

  2. That could have been a sound investment.
    Not sure when was the last time capcom made one of those.

    1. Of course, Capcom could possibly abuse their DLC aspect a lot worse than what Nintendo abuses it.

  3. Of all their series, Resident Evil though? I would think Street Fighter or Mega Man would go first, especially since their lead characters already have figures in Ryu and Mega Man respectively. I dunno about you guys, but I would enjoy having amiibo of Street Fighter icons like Guile, Bison, Chun-Li and Zangief.
