It would appear that a strange anomaly in the Amiibo manufacturing process has resulted in space warrior Samus Aran having doubled up on her weaponry.
Posting on Reddit, Adam Truesdale, under the name Adamantium126 (thanks, GameSpot!), showed off his newly acquired Samus Amiibo, revealing the peculiar oddity. Truesdale revealed that he had pre-ordered the NFC figurine from his local Best Buy, along with the Mario, Donkey Kong and Link Amiibo.
Speaking to GameSpot, Truesdale said: “I didn’t realize that she had two blasters until my friend pointed it out to me. I would have more than likely opened it up and started using it without a second thought.”
You can below the difference between the regular Amiibo and the defective one.
The first wave of Amiibo, which are Nintendo’s new Skylanders-style figurines, have been available in the US since Friday, when they were released alongside Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. The game launches in Europe on the 28th, 29th in Australia and the 6th of December in Japan.
