While those following the buzz around Pokken Tournament know that the game will feature amiibo support, not much more was known besides the Shadow Mewtwo integration card. However, according to Nintendo’s official amiibo sitePokken Tournament will be “[c]ompatible with all amiibo accessories unlocking in-game items.” It is unclear whether “amiibo accessories” include all Animal Crossing amiibo cards, but this will undoubtedly include all amiibo figures and amiibo-integrated Skylanders SuperChargers.

The Shadow Mewtrwo amiibo card will be available with first edition copies to the game and will allow players to unlock Shadow Mewtwo instantly. Pokken Tournament releases exclusively on Wii U on March 18, 2016.
