Will Super Smash Bros. Use NFC Figurines?

According to a French representative for Nintendo, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will use NFC technology. Speaking to Le Figaro, the Nintendo rep said the following (roughly translated):

Many games release will be formalized at the show at E3, but you already know that we will release the action game Bayonnetta 2. By the end of the year, there will also be the new Skylanders the new Disney Infinity, Sonic Boom, Watch Dogs or Zelda Hyrule Warriors. And on the output side of games produced by Nintendo, there will obviously be the fighting game Super Smash Bros.. E3 is also an opportunity to show the use of NFC technology [used in Skylanders and Disney Infinity, allowing the use of real objects here, figurines in video games] in Nintendo consoles. The NFC will be used in the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros.

The quote was removed shortly after being published, but has since been inserted back into the article. NFC allows players to use figurines to transfer additional data into games and between different titles.
