It's no secret that many of the amiibo figurines already revealed will work across a range of compatible software titles, and now a recently-discovered Wal-Mart promotional display has shed some light on which are set for use in Mario Kart 8.

Nintendo Force editor Lucas Thomas managed to grab a picture detailing a list of four amiibo that have been confirmed as compatible with the hugely popular title, including Mario, Yoshi, Princess Peach, and Donkey Kong. It's a fairly unsurprising line-up, but it's interesting to note that Link is currently absent from the selection, despite featuring as a playable racer in the upcoming DLC pack.

Three of the four, excluding Donkey Kong, will also work with the upcoming Mario Party 10, while the Yoshi amiibo will be able to carry over into Yoshi's Wooly World as well, meaning that the green dino is compatible with an impressive four titles in total so far.

Yet another image from the display even hints at possible amiibo representation from the Animal Crossing and Pikmin series in the future, with some shadowy versions of what could be Tom Nook and those lovable little veggies.


As not all of the initial Smash Bros. amiibo range has yet been revealed, it's likely that such displays are offering just a glimpse at some of the options available. We'd be surprised if our beloved Luigi figurine wasn't able to hop from the battlefield and into a kart as well, so let us know in a comment below what characters you'd like to see in amiibo form!

Thanks to Benson for the tip!
