Nintendo’s website for Mario Kart 8 confirms the full lineup of compatible amiibo figures for Mario Kart 8.

The following characters can be used with the racer:

Donkey Kong
Captain Falcon
Fox McCloud

amiibo functionality will be added to Mario Kart 8 through a software update next week. By using the different characters, you’ll be able to dress your Mii with new looks.

Thus far, Nintendo has only shown figurines in relation to amiibo. But the company apparently has other plans for the brand with additional products.

During the Q&A for Nintendo’s financial results briefing last week, there was talk about the different amiibo projects the company is working on for 2015 and the advantage of allowing them to be used in multiple games as well as the speediness of their read/write speeds.

This will probably be the last gallery we post for the first round of amiibo figurines… for awhile anyway. At least we get to see the backs of the different characters!



Not all amiibo figures will be freely available. During Nintendo’s financial results briefing yesterday, president Satoru Iwata mentioned that some amiibo will be offered as “limited-time offers”.

Iwata said:

The amiibo figure lineup for “Super Smash Bros.” will continue to be released even after this year-end sales season, and we hope that this will help to update store shelves. As store shelf space is limited, some amiibo will remain stocked on the shelves as staple choices while some will be limited-time offers which will cede their positions to new ones once they are sold out.

Iwata did not elaborate beyond this. It’ll be interesting to see which figures are limited!

Update: Bumped to the top. Added two more images. We also have a reconfirmation about the following amiibo compatibility (thanks Chandler B):

– Mario, Peach and Yoshi work with Mario Party 10
– Yoshi also works with Yoshi’s Woolly World

The images above were taken at a promotion area for amiibo inside Walmart. The third image includes silhouettes for Pikmin and Tom Nook. Might this be a sign that they’ll be getting their own figurines at some point in the future?
