Nintendo Announce Amiibo NFC Figures For Wii U Games

Nintendo has announced a new product line in the form of Amiibos, NFC figures that will be compatible with certain Wii U games by using the GamePad. These figures are different from the likes of Disney Infinity and Skylanders in that their stats can evolve.


This means even if you own the same figure as someone else each one will be different, for example in Super Smash Bros they will have their own styles and attribute stats. This will translate to other games too, with support coming for Mario Kart 8.

So, get ready to collect some more figures to add to any collection you may already have. Now all we need is Pokemon with NFC figures.
