Nintendo is not going to be happy about this. The unauthorized Amiiqo is available for pre-order which will allow consumers to spoof Nintendo’s Amiibo figures, tricking a Wii U into thinking that they are corresponding to official Amiibo products.
The Amiiqo comes with ten Amiibo figures which can be used to store up to 200, with an accompanying Android app used to download data for new figures for transferal. That seriously sounds like theft. It’s not entirely clear if the Amiiqo is violating intellectual property or copyright laws but, Nintendo will definitely not appreciate this sort of thing.
Interestingly enough the official Amiiqo.co.uk website is registered from an anonymous service to a guesthouse in Tokyo. This doesn’t paint the company in a good way at all.
