3DS Amiibo NFC Adapter Hits Japan This Summer

The NFC Reader Writer Adapter, which will allow standard 3DS models to interact with amiibo in various games, will be released in Japan sometime over this summer.

The New 3DS can use amiibo all by itself, but the regular, old-fashioned 3DS and 3DS XL can\’t. People in North America and the EU probably have to wait until February 13th to get their hands on a New 3DS (if there are any left).

No word yet on pricing for the NFC adapter.
