When Nintendo announced the New Nintendo 3DS XL, one of the big selling points was the inclusion of NFC scanner in the hardware itself to allow Amiibo’s to be used on games like Super Smash Bros. 3DS. Along with other future titles. However, this left many 3DS users (especially ones who can’t afford the newer one as of yet) with a problem, what would they have to do to use Amiibo’s with their older versions of the 3DS?
Nintendo has answered that with the form of an adapter that is supposedly coming this Summer. However, a new update for the 3DS is coming that’ll allow users to register their Amiibo’s, and manage the data in them. This could indicate that the adapter for the older 3DS is not only on the way, but it may be coming sooner than many have expected. We’ll have to wait until Nintendo gives confirmation though before going overboard on this.
