Best Buy Canada has put up pre-order listings for the first wave of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate amiibo, and they come with an interesting detail.
The pre-order listings for Wolf, Ridley, and Inkling mention players can unlock them in the game by simply tapping their amiibo. This detail has never been officially announced by Nintendo – the only thing we know is amiibo bring Figure Players (CPU players you can fight and raise) in the game.
Here’s the blurb that mentions the unlocking functionality:
Access a whole new level of fun and smash the competition with this Super Smash Bros amiibo. A former fighter in Andross’ army, the Wolf now leads his own mercenary team, and he’s not one you want to cross. Simply tap the amiibo accessory to the NFC touchpoint on your game system to unlock this Space Pirate.
We’ve marked this as a rumor for now as Nintendo has not officially confirmed this yet.
