Due to the success of Amiibo since their launch a few months ago, Nintendo has focused part of its recent conference around these figurines using NFC technology.
Also, the builder communicates to us the next models which will be marketed. The May 29, 2015, Amphinobi and Rondoudou will be available for sale, followed by Samus without armor, Palutena, Maleficent Pit and Ganondorf in June, Olimar, Dr. Mario and Bowser Jr. in July next.
In addition, the Kyoto firm announced the arrival of an application that will interact with the Amiibo. Baptized Touch & Play, the latter will allow play NES and Super NES games by linking the Wii U GamePad with one of our Amiibo. From then on, it will be possible to play for three minutes one of the retro titles of the manufacturer's 8 and 16 bit consoles.
The subtlety is that the game to be offered is a surprise. For example, with two same Amiibo Mario, one can offer a level of Super Mario Bros., while the other can offer Super Metroid.
The Touch & Play application is indicated as free and will be available for download during the month of May 2015.
