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.
