Nintendo confirmed it’s new Amiibo NFC figures, which can be used with Wii U and 3DS games in a unique way.
Nintendo’s foray into the toys-to-life category will inject energy into the genre. Nintendo will launch amiibo with around 10 figures. More will be launched during the winter season and throughout 2015. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will be the first game to support amiibo. Other games that will support amiibo include Mario Kart 8, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Mario Party 10 and Yoshi’s Woolly World, with more to come. A new NFC reader/writer being designed for 3DS is scheduled to launch in 2015.Check out the latest video.
