Nintendo’s amiibo line has become of a big thing for the company. At E3 2015, Nintendo spoke a little bit about amiibo support for the upcoming Star Fox Zero, as well as a figure that is currently in development.
In regards to Star Fox amiibo compatibility, Nintendo General Manager Shigeru Miyamoto stated: “You saw a Falco amiibo during the [Super Smash Bros.] presentation, and that will be out by the time Star Fox comes out. If you use those amiibo, you’ll get an in-game present.”
Miyamoto also mentioned that he wants an Arwing amiibo: “We’re creating lots of different types of prototypes of Arwing amiibo, but we’re not sure when it will be ready to be announced for sale.”
He continues: “I’m sure you’re aware of the amiibo shortage situation, even with the back orders and repeat orders. We kind of have our hands full. Earlier, we talked about how the 3D model of the Arwing will actually transform [into a two-legged walker] in the game. We have an actual model and we’re thinking how much would it cost to make when it’s transformable. Can we actually do that? We’re thinking about a lot of different things right now.”
