nintendo-switch-amiiboBased on what we have heard and seen as far as Amiibo sales figures are concerned, it would seem that it is one of the better-selling Nintendo products. So with the launch of the Nintendo Switch, we’re sure many are wondering, especially those who might have invested hundreds of dollars into the Amiibo, will the Switch support the toys?


The good news is yes. Like we said, the sales figures and the potential revenue from the Amiibo series makes it obvious that Nintendo would be silly to give it up, but we guess it’s always nice to have official confirmation. This was revealed in a statement given to the folks at IGN in which it reads, “If a Nintendo Switch game supports amiibo then the Nintendo Switch home gaming system will as well.”

Nintendo also confirmed other features of the console, like the dock which is mainly used to connect to the TV and to charge, and it isn’t actually the heart of the console. “The dock is not the main console unit of Nintendo Switch. The main unit of Nintendo Switch is the unit that has the LCD screen, which the two Joy-Con controllers can be attached to and detached from. The main function of the Nintendo Switch Dock is to provide an output to the TV, as well as charging and providing power to the system.”

Unfortunately that’s pretty much all that we know about the console for now. The Switch’s hardware specs, list of confirmed games, features like region-locking will not be revealed until 2017, according to Nintendo.
