There’s much to look forward to in Mario Kart 8‘s upcoming DLC, with Link and Villager being added as extra playable characters. Sadly, the game will not support either of these characters’ Amiibo, despite having functionality for other Mario figures.
Nintendo Force’s Editor-in-Chief, Lucas Thomas, kindly shared the official Amiibo compatibility list via Twitter.

It seems a bit of a wasted opportunity, but at least we can still use the Link Amiibo in Hyrule Warriors soon enough.
