Considering the others aren't in the game, it makes sense. Villager and Link will likely be compatible once DLC packs hit.

I would expect villager to. He is in the second dlc I think?

(Darn it, last bubble. I wish I could have more bubbles to talk to people. I used to have 3 but I was subtracted one. Oh well, at least I have 2.)

I think he's to be expected, I wonder how Mario Kart 8 will use the Amiibo?

As for the bubble thing, N4G is a harsh mistress. I've said the wrong thing a few times and come back online to 70+ disagrees, I'm surprised I've still got the normal 5 bubbles. It's a smart idea, however I've seen trolls running around with 8+ bubbles and legitimate people with one or two (as with you).

i didn't think of that im sure it will

Given that Mario Kart 8 came out way before Amiibos, I assume this needs to be patched in? And you already mention DLC as well. Is this common for Nintendo games? Is my 8gb basic console going to hamstring the fun?

I have to get the Mario figure first. Not only am I the biggest Mario nerd, but it will probably be compatible with the most games. Mario is the main mascot of Nintendo after all. That and I think the Mario figure is one of the best looking figures.

Is there any information out yet on what the actual function of Amiibo's are in Mario Kart 8?
