Nintendo is taking a cue from “Skylanders” and “Disney Infinity.”



Nintendo is taking a cue from “Skylanders” and “Disney Infinity.”

The Japanese gaming giant unveiled a toy figure line referred to as “amiibo” which will add tandem with its video games just like the toys-meet-games franchises from Activision Blizzard and therefore the movie maker. The announcement was created in an internet video released Tuesday throughout the Electronic diversion expo, the industry’s annual trade show.

“We see ‘amiibo’ as a brand-new platform for us,” Reggie Fils-Aime, president of Nintendo of America, aforementioned on the E3 show floor tuesday morning. “We use the term ‘platform’ specifically. Today, it’s figures. in the future, it might be other things that tie into the near-field communication technology designed right into the GamePad.”

Similar to Activision’s “Skylanders” and “Disney eternity,” the characters’ virtual histories are going to be stored on the plastic figures and transmitted through the Wii U GamePad, the controller for its slow-selling Wii U console that options a touchscreen and NFC capabilities.

The “amiibo” figures, the first of that are due out later this year, will embrace characters from well-known Nintendo franchises, such as the villager from “Animal Crossing”; the “Wii Fit” trainer; sword-wielding Link from “The Legend of Zelda”; collection solider Samus Aran from “Metroid”; Pikachu from “Pokemon”; picture pongid Donkey Kong; pink shape-shifter Kirby; and Mario, aristocrat Peach and Yoshi from “Super Mario Bros.”

Nintendo hyped several upcoming games due out later this year for the Wii U and 3DS, as well as “The Legend of Zelda” battle game “Hyrule Warriors,” hack-and-slash sequel “Bayonetta 2,” and therefore the “Omega Ruby” and “Alpha Sapphire” installments of the “Pokemon” series.

Other games teased for unleash in 2015 included the “Super Mario” level-designing game “Mario Maker,” on-line paint shoot-’em-up “Splatoon,” sci-fi role-playing game “Xenoblade Chronicles X,” cutesy platformer “Kirby and therefore the Rainbow Curse” associated a “Legend of Zelda” game for the Wii U set in an open world.

Nintendo may use a boost from new toys and games. Sales of Nintendo’s Wii U console have lagged behind the newer PlayStation four and Xbox One systems discharged by Sony corp. and Microsoft business firm., severally, last Nov. Nintendo has sold six million consoles since the Wii U was discharged in 2012, whereas Microsoft has sold-out 5 million, and Sony has sold-out seven million units within the past six months.
