Nintendo Unveils NFC Figurine for Wii U, 3DS

Posted on Thursday, May 8 @ 04:23:07 Eastern by Alex_Osborn
During an investor's meeting, Nintendo provided a sneak peak at its upcoming plans to take advantage of Wii U's NFC capabilities by showcasing a Mario figurine.

Check him out, in all of his plastic glory, below.
 

The figurines will work across multiple games as well as both Wii U and 3DS. To achieve this, the company is creating a device that adds NFC functionality to its current line of 3DS handhelds. This add-on is expected to launch during the first half of 2015. 

"In other words, the figurines, which consumers buy and collect, are going to work with multiple software titles to be released in the future, and we are aiming to develop more software titles compatible with the figurines," Nintendo president, Satoru Iwata explained. 

"Nintendo has a lot of well-known character IP that has originated in video games, and we have been regularly releasing titles from game franchises that make use of this character IP. This is why I believe a brand-new type of platform will be born when the character IP becomes compatible with NFP."

Iwata plans to reveal more at E3 about this new initiative, which has been codenamed NFP for "Nintendo Figurine Platform" and "NFC Featured Platform."

What do you think of the Big N's plans? Will it be able to compete with the likes of Disney Infinity and Skylanders?
