What’s the deal with amiibo production right now, anyway?

It’s no secret that the production of amiibo figures has slowed to a crawl. In 2021, we received a rather generous eight brand-new figurines! These include three from the Super Smash Bros. series, as well as two each for Metroid Dread and Super Mario 3D World. The Zelda & Loftwing amiibo was released for Skyward Sword HD as well. In 2022, we’ve received just one new amiibo figure — Min Min.

Between figurine delays and possible cancellations, the future of amiibo is looking rather thin. Today, we’re going to look at the reasons why this may be — and we’re also going to accept the reality that amiibo may be dying (we offer free therapy sessions in our Discord server).

Review: Nintendo Switch Sports

The original Wii Sports game came out in 2006, and it was an instant hit. In fact, it’s still considered a classic among Wii fans to this very day! It’s rather strange, then, that Nintendo has taken so long to release a follow-up on their highly successful Switch system. Unfortunately, the product we wound up with ultimately feels more like a half-baked pack-in than a $40 USD retail game. Most of the content Nintendo Switch Sports offers is fine on its own — but it’s outperformed by Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort, which released over 10 years ago.
