Super shocked that no one has made a thread about this yet...
You remember when amiibo was announced at this year's E3. And if you don't, I'll tell you. Amiibo are figures similar to those used by Skylanders and Disney Infiniti that allow you to bring your figures to life inside of the video game and customize attacks, level them up, etc. Except they're better! Granted, I have never played Skylanders or Disney Infiniti, BUT as you see in the video above (If you have watched it already, and if not...go watch it now before you continue)...there are multiple games that will be compatible with amiibo...
Games compatible with amiibo:
- Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Holiday 2014)
- Mario Kart 8
- Mario Party 10 (2015)
- Captain Toad Treasure Tracker (Holiday 2014)
- Yoshi's Wooly World (2015)
Apparently, the first wave of figures are already available for pre-order at Gamestop and will include: Mario, Link, Kirby, Samus, Pikachu, Marth, Fox, Villager, Donkey Kong, Wii Fit Trainer, Yoshi, and Princess Peach.
I'm pretty excited about this! Like I said, unlike Infiniti or Skylanders, these figures are compatible with multiple games.
I'm going to be so broke when I buy all the ones I want to buy...
What do you think about Nintendo jumping on the interactive figure bandwagon and releasing amiibo?
