Newsbrief: Nintendo has revealed more details about its upcoming amiibo figurines, with a big push for the brand planned alongside the launch of the new Super Smash Bros.

The figurines, which can connect to Wii U games via NFC connectivity, will cost $12.99 each, and work alongside games like Super Smash Bros. and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.

Notably, the newly unveiled New Nintendo 3DS now features NFC functionality, just in time for the Super Smash Bros. launch on Nintendo 3DS.

Nintendo will offer various characters from the game alongside the launch, including Mario, Donkey Kong, Samus Aran, Fox McCloud and Villager figurines.
