Pokémon’s upcoming action brawler will surely be a hit in more ways than one. To add to its value, it will support all amiibo figures according to the official Nintendo website.
Similar to other Wii U and 3DS games, Pokkén Tournament allows players to unlock items with each figure. There’s not much information on the full extent of the amiibo items, but it doesn’t seem likely anything exclusive will come from specific figures. The only exception is using the Shadow Mewtwo amiibo card to unlock the fighter right away.
This is definitely good news for both Pokémaniacs and amiibo collectors as they’ll have the opportunity to dust off their figures once again. Allowing every single amiibo to unlock hidden content is a feature many games should be emulating.
