Nintendo teams up with Skylanders for hybrid Amiibo

Donkey Kong and Bowser are coming to Skylanders. Both have signature moves and vehicles within the new Skylanders SuperChargers. Here’s the magic thing; they work as Amiibo too – just by twisting the base to shield specific NFC bits. A Skylanders figure and a new Amiibo.
