This time on Did You Know Gaming extra, we take a look at how Rare wanted amiibo on Nintendo 64 (N64) back in the 90s, and even tried to make some amiibo-like toys for their cancelled Xbox game Urchin. Then we talk about Skylanders: Superchargers, and how Princess Peach, other Mario characters, Kirby, and Fox McCloud were planned to appear along side Donkey Kong and Bowser as toys. Then we take a look at why Star Fox Zero didn’t get an arwing amiibo, and then finish off with some trivia about Sega’s Shining Force.

    At this point, Skylanders isn't Spyro anymore at all!

    I guess a part of me would've died a little if Kirby was in Skylanders…but, I feel like there would be some love for Kirby Air Ride, so I'm cool with whatever I guess…

    Jogurt isn't totally useless. I once used him all the way through the game, and his weakness paved the way for my other characters to gain more EXP since that was essentially one less character to divide it between. He was basically a character who could take a free hit without diminishing my force in any relevant way, while also making the rest of the team stronger than they otherwise would be.

    Doesn't surprise me, Nintendo is a bunch of fag scumbags that steal ideas, because they are genuinely terrible people. I like their games, but I despise what they do; I really hate miamotto with a passion.

    When the video began playing footage from Nintendo's amiibo ad, I could practically hear the lines in my head: "Mario and Peach together… me and Gina together."

    Either Jogurt's parents considered him the pride of Jogurt, or they really didn't care.

    i guess, but back when the n64 wasn't built with nfc readers, didn't became the main thing until 2006.

    1:28 Yeah definitely because she can kick the ask out of melee!

  11. Google+sucksballs August 30, 2017 at 12:26 am

    Why was that kid giving Mario the "fuck me" eyes? WTF Nintendo?!

  12. Italian Maniac August 30, 2017 at 12:26 am

    2:22 Miiyamoto, i have 2 questions.

    But wait a min, isnt Yogurt a master of the schwartz?

  18. Zuriki August 30, 2017 at 12:26 am

    Nintendo consistently ripped off ideas from other companies.

  19. Sammy Lane August 30, 2017 at 12:26 am

    To think…WE COULD HAVE HAD YOSHI IN SKYLANDERS!!NINTENDO…WHAT HAVE YOU DENIED US!!??

    Why not Captain Falcon for SuperChargers? His whole schtick is that he drives race cars and punches people.

    I'm actually thankful there were not amiibos on the N64, i can imagine they locking content behind them.
