Nintendo Announces New Amiibos During Nintendo Direct

By   /   Jun 15, 2015

Nintendo’s early E3 press conference start yesterday saw a mini Nintendo Direct. During the show, Masahiro Sakura – the creator of Super Smash Bros – announced the availability of a new set of Amiibos for the Wii U and 3DS.

The new Amiibos will be available from next summer, specifically September 25, and will perform similar function to the conventionally available Amiibos.

The new Amiibos will be Mr. Game & Watch, R.O.B, Falco, Duck Hunt, and Warriors Mii.

Amiibo is Nintendo’s wireless comms and storage protocol that is used between compatible Amiibo toys and the Nintendo Wii U & 3DS platforms.

Like many smart devices, the toys use Near Field Communication (NFC) to interact with supported videogames, allowing data transfers in and out of games and across multiple platforms.

Stay tuned for full coverage of this year’s E3 press conference, as we bring you more updates on what’s happening at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
