A partnership between Mattel and Microsoft will bring figurines similar to amiibo on Minecraft Earth during the second quarter of 2020.
The Boost Minis will include NFC sensors that can be scanned for “boosts”, with unique improvements limited in time.
Players will have increases in experience points, decreases in crafting times and improvements to health, attack and defense, among others.
There will be three different levels of boost: the first level will last 15 minutes, the second 20, the third 25. Furthermore, activating a Boost will allow you to have additional experience.
In the United States these figures will be sold directly by Mattel, while there is no news for marketing in European territory.
Minecraft Earth has been available in early access also in Italy since last November.
