Nintendo Announces NFP, Including Mario Figurine

Nintendo has announced future plans for its NFC functionality for the Wii U and 3DS, a technology that allows players to scan figurines into various NFC capable games. During the investor’s meeting this past Wednesday, Nintendo revealed NFP, or NFC Featured Platform (also Nintendo Figurine Platform), allowing players to use Nintendo figurines to import data into several games, all with the same figurine. No other details were spared, but Nintendo did announce that games using NFP technology will be announced at E3 2014 in June.

What do you think? Does this look like something you want to invest in? What other characters do you want to see as figurines?

I’m thinking this may tie in with the character roster of Mario Kart 8.

They look pretty cool, but I hope that they aren’t needed to play certain games. If they are, I hope that they’re a reasonable price.

This could be the Mario game Nintendo said they were working on.

Maybe. But they said that’s a 3d Mario game, next game after 3d World, it would be awesome if we use NFP for interact with the game.

I don’t think there’ll actually be a Mario figurine. He should be in his games without the need of DLC. What this will really be useful for is adding side characters to rosters or something, not main ones.

Perhaps this could be the WiiU/3DS interconnectivity that Smash is going to use. I’ll watch this space.

Not too fond of spending money on figures that will simply become dust gatherers but if they are going to be used for something interesting, I may consider it.

Maybe another mario RPG game where you use those characters to play the game!! The game would come with 4 characters: Mario, Luigi, Peach, Toad then you need to buy the other ones if you want different gameplay like Bowser, DK, Waluigi, Yoshi and beyond! Who Agrees?

I can’t make out Game C very well, but I can barely see five characters who look like Mario and Koopa Troopa in the middle of the screen, Luigi off to the right in the background, Shy Guy in the lower right corner, and possibly the Millennium Star above the “a”.

Could this be a Mario Party 10 hint?
