As expected, the Banjo-Kazooie amiibo was officially released yesterday from the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate collection along with Terry’s and Byleth’s. Well, it seems that a trend that has gone viral consists of taking pictures of the bottom part.
Why is this this? Well, everything seems to be due to the fact that, at the bottom, the copyright of Microsoft appears. This has made many fans think that it is really curious to see the name of the American technology giant on an official Nintendo product such as amiibo.
Here are some examples:

Some things I noticed, first, the Jiggy that’s used as a stand for the figure is actually off shape compared to the regular Jiggy shape, which is odd but doesn’t bother me at all. Second, it’s cool seeing Microsoft’s name on a nintendo product! Overall, great Amiibo. pic.twitter.com/rig2QVyzxJ

On the bottom of the Banjo & Kazooie amiibo, there’s a Microsoft copyright. The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Start Menu has Microsoft labeled under the copyrights — so this isn’t shocking at all, but it’s an interesting to see “Microsoft” on an amiibo. Steve’s will be the same. pic.twitter.com/LVzaldvtyC

The amiibo of Terry is copyrighted by SNK but does not appear to have had the same effect. It will be necessary to see if the same thing is repeated with Steve from Minecraft. What do you think?
