Interactive amiibo Figures: Nintendo’s foray into the toys-to-life category starts today, with the first 12 amiibo figures available to pre-order from select retailers. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, which launches this holiday season, will be the first game with full integration of amiibo functionality. 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. More details on amiibo functionality with the various games and a launch date will be revealed shortly.
all I really gotta say about this holiday season for japan/europe/america is…holy fuck Nintendo will dominate in this fall.

BRODUDE FUCK WITH HIS COD BF AND DESTINY CASUAL CHILDISH DOG SHIT
Kaizar is that you?
Could we possibly keep the vulgarity out of this? I understand you’re frustrated but please keep in mind who we’re hurting the most by such behaviour. As instead of helping the argument, it only deters those who actually enjoy reading these articles.
In that case then, Disney Infinity is a rip-off of Skylanders, right??? Wrong. This is not a rip-off, based purely on the face that it functions differently to Skylanders/Disney Infinity. These have specific figures for each series that basicly downloads the figure data in the game, then that character is usable in said game, Amiibo is used to transfer data and to level up your character like in Super Smash Bros and are used for different games, such as Smash Bros, Mario Kart 8, Mario Party 10,etc…
Dang it, I meant FACT, not FACE…
Are you even trying anymore? lol That is the most pathetic troll attempt ever attempted and it didn’t even piss off a single soul on earth. XD

Dear dear, we have hater in our mists. Let me clear up your ignorant rage a tad:
This is an innovative collectible action figure that doubles as an addon to increase enjoy-ability and possible competitive gameplay of multiple titles.
This is why PS4 copied Wii with PlayStation Move, because Nintendo is innovative, unlike other standing companies*
WOW, as in wow, this is amazing? or are you referring to the widely popular game World of Warcraft?
We do have lives, if we did not, we would not be in this current state, with the exception of me, since I am an android (hence my username).
fanboys is an incorrect term. Maybe try fan beings, since bother genders and even androids like I are part of this fan base.
jacking off is slang. Perhaps use masturbate to seem more formal? Nevertheless, either is rude and shouldn’t be said on public fourms.
Growing up is done constantly, as all human beings are doing so at their own rates.
Technically we aren’t losers. Nintendo seems to be progressing faster than PlayStation currently, but the statistics are ever changing.
Enjoy your day remembering that an android from the 24th century came back in time to correct your huge mistakes. For future reference, Sony is stuck in the third party section, like Sega in the 24th century. With the exception of the PlaystationVR. Which was significantly worse than the current time credit card scandals you deal with on your PlayStation consoles. Data to star fleet out.
just to let you know,its losers not loosers
you’re a child.
Not sure if trolling or just very stupid. I’ll go with the latter.
its pronounced wii u douchebag. Oh shoot I fed the gremlin after dark!
you mad ?
Aw… I wanted Lucina and Rosalina. XD
Link, Fox, and Samus for me.
Compared to Skylanders figures, what’s the difference?…
WII NEED TO GROW UP SAYS THE GUY WHOS SO FANBOY CHILDISH HE DEFENDS DUALSHOCK A 4 GEN OLD GAME RESTRICTING PILE OF SHIT
LOL GROW UP NINTENDO FANS GROW UP EACH GEN NOT STAY THE SAME AS PS1 YOU FAKE ASS CASUAL GAMING IDIOT

Nintendo is going to fucking print $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ with this shit.

I don’t think it’s a coincidence that Link is going to be the the first MK8 DLC… and Villager in the second. That makes for 6 of the 12 initial amiibo figures potentially MK8 compatible.
Reblogged this on The Cool Bar.
What the fuck? Where’s my Zelda Amiibo?! and isn’t $12.99 a little too pricey?
No not at all! The skylanders are very close to this price and its way better than Disney infinity who is raising their prices for the new infinity 2.0. A new Disney figure will cost you $17 after taxes!
Considering they can be used for more than one game makes that price worth it unlike the Disney Infinity/Skylander toys that only work for one game.
Gotta have that DK! They look so awesome! Maybe that Pikachu too, gotta cath um all right? xD
