Every amiibo Works With Pokkén Tournament
Nintendo has confirmed that every amiibo will work with Pokkén Tournament, the Pokémon brawler becoming the latest game to support their ever expanding foray into the toys-to-life market.
While the Shadow Mewtwo amiibo card will unlock the mysterious Psychic-type Pokémon as a playable character, any other amiibo can be scanned to unlock “in-game items.” More specific details will become available in the coming weeks, ahead of the game’s worldwide launch mid-March.
It was recently announced that Pokkén Tournament had joined the EVO 2016 official line-up, with organiser Joey ‘Mr. Wizard’ Cuellar sharing that they had “decided to take a chance” on the Wii U exclusive’s inclusion.
Pokkén Tournament will release exclusively for Wii U worldwide on March 18th.
