Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball amiibo cards announced

6 special cards to collect

Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball is getting some fancy amiibo support. Konami has announced that a selection of amiibo cards are going to release for the game. The only catch is, five of the six cards are going to be retailer-exclusives. That'll make it awfully tough to get a full set.

What do these amiibo cards do? Tapping one to your controller nets you a very powerful item once a day, and also lets you load the item you have received in Treasure Mode onto your amiibo card. Details on where to get each card can be found below.

- amiibo card Pawapuro-Kun (included with all launch copies of the game)
- amiibo card Ikari Mamoru (pre-order bonus exclusive to Apita/Piago, Aeon, Toys R Us, Don Kihoote, HMV & Books Online, Konami Style)
- amiibo card Yabe Akio (pre-order bonus exclusive to Edion, Joshin, Bic Camera, Sofmap, Kojima, Yamada, Yodobashi, and Nojima)
- amiibo card Hayakawa Aoi (pre-order bonus exclusive to Amazon Japan) – buy here (ships worldwide)
