I'm not joking when I say I literally got my shipment of the other three Monster Hunter amiibo just this morning, imported and all for a complete collection. (I had planned on buying them regardless, but knowing Stories was coming out pushed me to finally get them all.)
If this is the case does it mean they won't work with the game at all? I just don't understand Nintendo's logic with not releasing. The MH Stories amiibo aren't just some of the best looking amiibo to date, they give you fun monsters in game to start with and even have characters that can be swapped between their amiibo bases.
I've had my doubts about Nintendo releasing the amiibo, since we're less than a month from release and they've given NO WORD on them, but at least let those who put in the time to import use their amiibo the way they originally functioned.
Nintendo has really slowed down on amiibo lately. We didn't get an official release of the Boxboy amiibo either. I hate hearing things like this for games because it almost seems like they're not fully supporting it.
Also as a side note, the MH amiibo do still work with Animal Crossing and give you the Felyne character and access to the MH items. Nintendo make up your mind!!
