Bowser amiibo functionality coming to Mario Kart 8


That, or a Nintendo Twitter account messed up

Amiibros, there's new amiibo news on the horizon. Oh happy days. According to a tweet dropped today by Nintendo of Australia and New Zealand's Twitter account, your Bowser amiibo will soon unlock content in Mario Kart 8.

See, that's a Bowser amiibo on the right hand side there, Bowser functionality is totally coming to Mario Kart 8. It's also entirely possible that someone paid to produce an image demonstrating non-Smash Bros. amiibo work with the game incorrectly added the Bowser image. That said, we can all hope right? Maybe one of my amiibo will do something else in a game soon.
