Nintendo has teamed up with Activision to launch brand new amiibo figures for Donkey Kong and Bowser. For the first time ever, players will be able to use the new Bowser and Donkey Kong figurines in Skylanders SuperChargers for the Wii U. Both characters will get their very own vehicles to add into the mix, including the Barrel Blaster for our wonderful ape which is synonymous with the franchise.
Those who buy these special amiibo to use in Skylanders SuperChargers will also be able to switch them to “amiibo mode”, allowing for additional use in other compatible Nintendo games. More information will be released on these figures shortly. Skylanders SuperChargers is due for release September 20 for North America and September 25 for Europe.
