Even though toys-to-life games met a fateful fate and Nintendo jumped on the bandwagon a bit late, the Japanese company continues to support its amiibo line. Precisely the newest has just debuted and collectors discovered a novelty that they have requested for a long time.
When Nintendo released the amiibo figures, something that discouraged fans who collect without removing the product from the packaging is that it was impossible to make the figures work without opening the box in some way or another, since under the statuette Nintendo placed a sheet that prevented NFC communication with their consoles, perhaps to ensure that users or sellers did not scan the figure instead of the buyer.
However, this naturally meant that collectors had to decide whether to buy the figure to keep it closed or to play with it.

amiibo finally works right out of the box!
Despite fans asking Nintendo to remove the little foil, the company never did. However, collectors were pleasantly surprised that Nintendo finally released the figures without the annoying foil.
Reddit user TrevNick was the first to verify that the new collectible figure, Min Min, could be scanned without being removed from the box. At first many believed that it was a factory error, but then users with their copy in hand began to corroborate the discovery on their own.
Apparently, Nintendo has changed the way these figures are produced. We say this because the Min Min figure is not the first to apply this change, but the reissues of the amiibo from Kirbya few months ago, as reported Amiibo News. That said, after checking with the new release, everything seems to indicate that it is a change that Nintendo will keep and finally, after almost 8 years, collectors of these figures will finally be able to use them without having to open the box. Below you can see a video demonstrating it.
