As you’ve probably seen, the new Min Min Super Smash Bros. Ultimate amiibo is now available in the store. If you’re planning to add this to your collection, here’s your PSA that this new amiibo is based on the fighter from the WEAPONS -Series may not need to be unpacked to use.
As pointed out in a post on the amiibo subreddit, this new amiibo’s packaging may not have an “NFC blocker” to prevent Nintendo fans from scanning the NFC figure while it’s still in the box.
There are all sorts of theories circulating as to why this particular amiibo can be scanned, but it seems that this change may have happened before Min Min – with the Amiibo News Twitter account noting that this has allegedly been possible since the re-release of kirby amiibo:
@AmiiboNews – “Fun Fact: Starting with the re-release of the Kirby amiibo, Nintendo removed the foil preventing you from scanning amiibo in the box. In-box collectors rejoice!”
We’ve tested our own boxed Min Min amiibo here at Nintendo Life and have had success scanning it into Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as well. Have you had any luck yourself? Leave a comment below.
