UPDATE (02/20): We now have some footage of the game’s amiibo functionality in action, courtesy of Nintendo Town. Check out the unlock process:

Since the announcement of the Shadow Mewtwo amiibo card for Pokkén Tournament, fans have been wondering what other kind of amiibo compatibility the fighting game might offer.

Through Nintendo’s official website, it’s been confirmed that all other existing amiibo will be supported and will unlock in-game items. The website specifically uses the words “amiibo accessories,” meaning that the game most likely supports both the figures and the cards.


It’s still a mystery what kind of items amiibo could be used to unlock, and I still wouldn’t rule out the possibility of Pokkén specific amiibo because of this information. No further details have been elaborated, so stay tuned for more information as it’s released.
