From an interview with Nintendo France:

La Wii U avait souffert l'an passé d'un manque de jeux, avec des sorties très espacées. Le début d'année 2014 a lui aussi été calme, qu'en sera-t-il après la sortie de Mario Kart 8?

Beaucoup de sorties de jeux seront officialisés lors du salon de l'E3, mais vous savez déjà que nous allons sortir le jeu d'action Bayonnetta 2. D'ici à la fin de l'année, il y aura également le nouveau Skylanders, le nouveau Disney Infinity, Sonic Boom, Watch Dogs ou Zelda Hyrule Warriors. Et du côté des sorties de jeux produits par Nintendo, il y aura évidemment le jeu de combat Super Smash Bros. L'E3 sera aussi l'occasion de montrer l'utilisation de la technologie NFC [technologie utilisée dans Skylanders et Disney Infinity, permettant d'utiliser des objets réels - ici, des figurines - dans des jeux vidéo] dans les consoles Nintendo. Le NFC sera utilisé dans la version Wii U de Super Smash Bros.

Chrome translation courtesty Amneisac:

Wii U had suffered the past a lack of games a year, with widely spaced outlets. The beginning of the year 2014 was also quiet, what will happen after the release of Mario Kart 8? Many games release will be formalized at the show at E3, but you already know that we out action game Bayonnetta 2. By the end of the year, there will also be the new Skylanders, the new Disney Infinity, Sonic Boom, Watch Dogs or Zelda Hyrule Warriors. And on the output side of games produced by Nintendo, there will obviously be the fighting game Super Smash Bros.. E3 is also an opportunity to show the use of NFC technology [used in Skylanders and Disney Infinity, allowing the use of real objects - here, figurines - in video games] in Nintendo consoles . The NFC will be used in the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros.

My French is a bit rusty, but it says NFC will be used for SSB for Wii U. So, there we have it. Any additional translation would be great.

Thanks to Jubern and Jackano.

Final Smash this thread if old.

Makes perfect sense. As someone who will collect the figures it's great I can use them with Smash.

I can see it as the NFC figurine storing specific data/settings for your controls/unlocks. Could be a huge help for the competitive scene.

Not liking this idea completely. I hope they don't do it for the 3DS version, but I still don't want to miss any significant content like characters.

But Sakurai said both versions of the game would have the same characters.Nothing to worry about.

...right?

It's not going to be "buy the figurine to unlock the character", so I've no objections.

I still think it's hilarious that NFP means Nintendo Figure Platform *and* NFC Featured Platform.

As long as it something like for trophies in the game that have some special powers like in brawls subspace i am all okay for it. But if they start hiding dlc characters behind NFC i am going to rage.

Now the delay between 3ds and Wii U version makes sense. I'm not that interested in figurines, but let's see how will Nintendo play.

New characters make perfect sense for this. This also gives a clear differentiation between the 3DS and Wii U.

And, yes, my guess is that Nintendo was waiting for E3 for this news.

It'll be interesting how they'll put this into use. An NFC figure exclusive game-mode? Sticker effects in that mode, like Subspace? Or... gasp... costumes? I think we can pretty much discount character unlocks.

Bet you that it will be AR/NFC cards that can be used on both the 3DS and Wii U. Though I would love to be wrong and straight up buy the figures, even if it means my wallet hating me.
