Mini Mario & Friends: amiibo Challenge is the latest entry in the Mario vs Donkey Kong series. Unlike the previous ones, this game simply cannot be played without an amiibo. You can use pretty much any amiibo to unlock standard levels, but also specific figures (such as Mario, Rosalina or Bowser) to unlock special levels.
Mini Mario & Friends: amiibo Challenge comes out later today on the Nintendo eShop in Europe and North America. But in Japan and North America, the game has been availals for several weeks already. But in order to get it, you need to use download codes given for free with the purchase of any amiibo.
Today, Nintendo announced that two new rewards have been to My Nintendo in Japan: download codes for Mini Mario & Friends: amiibo Challenge on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. It looks like instead of releasing the app for free on the Nintendo eShop, Nintendo chose to go with My Nintendo in Japan (though there’s no doubt the eShop release will come later down the line).
Since the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions are listed separately, the download code will only work on one platform. If you want it on both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, you will need to spend twice the amount of coins.
Here’s the two rewards:
[3DS] Mini Mario & Friends: amiibo Challenge (eShop): 150 Platinum Coins [click here to redeem your coins before August 1st, 12AM JST]
[Wii U] Mini Mario & Friends: amiibo Challenge (eShop): 150 Platinum Coins [click here to redeem your coins before August 1st, 12AM JST]
We don’t know if similar rewards will also be added to My Nintendo in Europe and North America, but since the game will be available for free on the Nintendo eShop from today, it would be pretty pointless!
