This week Nintendo crossed a barrier - they've announced Amiibo for Skylanders. These Amiibo will be cross-platform functional - cross-game, that is to say, don't cross your fingers for Amiibo working outside of the Nintendo hardware universe just yet. These characters work with Amiibo abilities as they always would, but also working in the new game Skylanders SuperChargers. The first Amiibos introduced this way are Donkey Kong and Bowzer. These new characters will take on new abilities and forms - and they'll have their own special vehicles usable in the Skylanders universe, too.
