Will Super Smash Bros. use the GamePad’s NFC chip?
According to a new interview from a French website, it’s possible that Super Smash Bros. will have some sort of NFC integration once it launches. While the details are pretty scarce, here’s a rough translation of what the interview says:
And on the output side of games produced by Nintendo, there will obviously be the fighting game Super Smash Bros.. E3 is also an opportunity to show the use of NFC technology [used in Skylanders and Disney Infinity, allowing the use of real objects - here, figurines - in video games] in Nintendo consoles . The NFC will be used in the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros.
Super Smash Bros. is mentioned in the same breath as Skylanders and Disney Infinity. Does this mean Nintendo plans on releasing action figures for Super Smash Bros. that can somehow be used in the game? One suggestion on the NeoGAF forums was that Nintendo could potentially sell assist trophy figurines that can be used in the game, giving players multiple choices when it comes to displaying their prowess.
What do you think of this news? Would you buy figures to use inside Super Smash Bros?
