Capcom isn’t a stranger to amiibo. In an interview with Weekly Famitsu, Capcom’s Ryota Niitsuma stated that the company had intended to make figures for Resident Evil Revelations online Switch.
Before devoting their production due to some unfortunate conditions, the team had made some posable 3D versions. Fans of this series may believe that the options for amiibo wouldhave been Jill Valentine, Barry Burton, or even Claire and Chris Redfield.
Capcom, believe it or not, had actually been considering creating amiibo for HUNK in addition to Lady HUNK, two personalities which are working in Revelations’ raid style. The director of the very first game at the Revelations series, Koushi Nakanishi, expressed that he still has a interest in producing amiibo for the series.
The Resident Evil Revelations Collection on Switch actually does still have amiibo support. You can scan any figure into the game to reap some benefits. Although, if you employ amiibo franchises you’ll be rewarded more compared to if you scanned for instance in a Link or Mario.
I received the chance to take a look at the Resident Evil Revelations Collection on Switch earlier this season, I presume both ports are excellent and definitely worth experiencing in case you’ve been waiting for the series to make its debut to the Switch.
What Resident Evil characters do you want to see turned into amiibo? I personally would like to see some of the original models for Jill and Chris from the very first Resident Evil given the figure therapy.
