Liam Robertson, also known as Tamaki from Unseen64, has a knack for discovering the truth behind cancelled games, and his sources also occasionally supply him with news about upcoming games and behind-the-scenes details at Nintendo. According to his latest report, Nintendo Software Technology (the Nintendo-owned American studio behind Metroid Prime Hunters, the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series, and other games) has an Amiibo-centric game finished and ready to ship, and Nintendo plans to launch it early next year.
Robertson’s sources tell him that the game will launch as a free-to-play title for anyone who has an Amiibo, but it is believed that this will be a temporary promotion and that a price tag will be added later. However, Nintendo of Europe is reportedly considering making it a free release later in the year. Little is known about the game at this time, but it’s expected to release on both 3DS and Wii U, and using Amiibo will unlock content in the game. We’ll keep you updated if we learn more, but in the meantime this should be treated as a rumor, as there is no official confirmation.
