Use amiibo as virtual board game tokens in a new game mode.

Nintendo has detailed its amiibo functionality in Mario Party 10, via a new mode called Amiibo Party.

In addition, Nintendo also revealed that the game will be releasing on March 20 in North America and Europe and March 12 in Japan, the same day the Super Mario line of amiibo will hit store shelves. There will also be special bundles containing the game and one amiibo from the same line. Nintendo confirmed that in Japan a special bundle with the Mario will be available at launch.
