Remember the rumor last week that Super Smash Bros. would launch with NFC support for various figurines? According to Nintendo UK, that’s not a confirmed title for the NFC figures that Nintendo recently talked about. Nintendo UK reiterated that while Satoru Iwata did discuss NFC figurines with the technology, that Super Smash Bros. has yet to be confirmed one of them. We assume that means Nintendo isn’t happy about the potential leak and if it is true, we’ll hear the official news at E3 next month.
There has, however, not been any specific announcements regarding which software titles for Nintendo platforms will use this functionality. We have no other announcements to make at this time.
This sounds more like attempting to mop up a rumor rather than dispelling it entirely, which is fine by us. If Super Smash Bros. does incorporate NFC figurines in a way that doesn’t mean some fighters are exclusive to those who buy the figures, we’d be fine with that.
