Good news for all Wii U owners. Nintendo are finally going to hopefully start making good use of that funny square stickered part of your Wii U gamepad.

Up Until now Pokemon Rumble U has been the only game to use the NFC feature.

Now Nintendo have announced NFP or NFC Featured Platform of Nintendo Figurine Platform. Which in essence is going to be a range of interactive figures a la Skylanders/Disney Infinity, using familiar Nintendo Characters and IP.

A NFC reader was also announced for the 3DS.

Nintendo’s NFP figures are due out later this year for Wii U, with 3DS versions scheduled for 2015.

Personally I can’t wait.

More information will be announced at Nintendo’s E3 Digital Event on June 10th.
