The lucky folks in the USA can get early access to Mini Mario & Friends Amiibo Challenge between March 25th and April 27th if they buy any amiibo figure from selected outlets (yes, they actually state that on their website “Any amiibo figure”). Game Stop, Amazon and Best Buy are participating in this early access event and will be providing a download code which you can use in the eShop that will grant you access to this game. It works for both Wii U and 3DS so no-one will be going without, except maybe the rest of the world 😉
Mini Mario & Friends Amiibo Challenge is Nintendo’s first amiibo-centric game that actually requires amiibo to play. Each amiibo figure has its own special skills that are needed to complete the levels in the game. Amiibo from the Mario & Donkey Kong universes have their own toy variations in the game. Amiibo from other franchise will be displayed as a little robot.
