The Star Fox Zero website currently doesn’t have much on it, but there has been some mention of Amiibo support and “online features.”
Game, system and amiibo sold separately. Compatibility and functionality of amiibo may vary by game. Visit amiibo.com for specific details on how each amiibo works.
Broadband Internet access required for online features. For more info, go to support.nintendo.com.
This is found at the bottom of the site, at E3 Miyamoto teased support for Amiibo. He left open the possibility of online play, though “tentatively” ruled it out at E3.
Star Fox Zero will be out next year.
