Nintendo have confirmed that their amiibo figures will also be available in card-format. The amiibo cards are set to be released at some point during 2015.
Back in December, Shigeru Miyamoto revealed that Nintendo were considering amiibo cards as a replacement for discontinued amiibo figures. Now, thanks to an update from Nintendo’s president Satoru Iwata, amiibo cards have finally been confirmed.
“In contrast to the current figure-shaped amiibo available, we will make amiibo in the form of cards this year as one of our future plans…” – Satoru Iwata
The amiibo cards are set to be released during 2015 and will function in the same manner as the current amiibo figurines.
