Nintendo Talks Amiibo In Future Mobile Games

After yesterday’s announcement of Mario’s first iOS outing, Shigeru Miyamoto has been answering many questions on Nintendo’s future in the mobile space. In an interview with IGN, Miyamoto was asked whether Amiibo would ever play a role in Nintendo’s mobile games. While not confirming anything, he claimed that it was an area the company was interested in. Miyamoto claimed that because of Apple’s announcements regarding NFC technology, Amiibo integration seems more likely. Is this something you’d like to see? Tell us in the comments below.

“There’s nothing we can announce today but It’s certainly an area we’re interested in. Until the announcement this morning there wasn’t a whole lot we could do, but now we can look at what they’ve said and how we might have an opportunity to use that.”

    1. Maybe they’ll make their own phone adapter hardware? An add on like they had for the 3ds but aimed at the phone?

    1. I read that Apple has had NFC in the iPhone for quite sometime as well, but the new iPhone 7 will now have the same NFC tech that Japan (and Nintendo) uses, which will make amiibo functionality with the iPhone 7 much more possible.

      1. Half a decade on Android, only 2 years on iOS.
        NFC is NFC, period. It’s a standard system that everyone uses. You can already tap Amiibo in different ways onto Android devices.

        The only thing being introduced is Apple Pay in Japan. Nothing more, nothing less.

        1. oh ok. I found the source I was referring to:

          In the past, the NFC capability of the iPhone made it all but impossible to read and write information to NFC capable products due to Apple’s strict, payment only policy, but that may change with the updated NFC chip in the iPhone 7. The new chip supports FeliCa Type-F, a NFC technology used in Japan – very similar to the NFC technology used in amiibo today.

          Miyamoto added:

          “Until the announcement this morning there wasn’t a whole lot we could do, but now we can look at what they’ve said and how we might have an opportunity to use that.”

                You were comparing it to Android. There’s nothing new.
