Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is an enjoyable Wii U game that takes advantage of certain amiibo toys to give the player extra powers. The game, in fact, takes a brief moment to push the toys at the player and suggest they go buy some. The game works with the , King DeDeDe and Meta Knight toys ... but of course two of those three amiibo are nearly impossible to find unless you wait in line when a retailer gets a few in stock.
Paul LaCen sent me this clip from a Kirby cartoon that aired between 2002 and 2006 in the United States after originally airing in Japan between 2001 and 2003. So how well does a cartoon from over a decade ago skewer Nintendo's modern situation with amiibo?
I'll let you watch for yourself. Once you're done, check out our video of Rainbow Curse. It's almost TOO cute.
