Nintendo was asked to comment on the capabilities of amiibo during the Q&A portion of its latest financial briefing.

President Satoru Iwata first addressed the topic and touched on how the Wii U’s NFC features have not been truly utilized until now. He also discussed the instantaneous speed of the read/write process for amiibo figures, and teased that Shigeru Miyamoto “has been considering multiple ways to use the GamePad, and using the NFC reader/writer function more aggressively is one area he has instructed his teams to focus on.” Nintendo could bring out some titles next year that focus on NFC functionality.

Head past the break for Iwata’s full comments.

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:

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.
