According to French website Le Figaro, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is going to take advantage of the system's NFC system.

It's not clear from the quote whether this will involve some kind of tie-in with the recently announced NFP figurine system or some new functionality.

The forum Neogaf dug up the article originally, and a Google translate of the text reveals the interesting quote from Stephan Bole, managing director of Nintendo France: "The NFC will be used in the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros."

Outside of Pokemon, Smash Bros. would be the next best way to incorporate collectible Nintendo figurines. We'll likely get full details on what this means at E3, but what do you think of the potential mash-up? Is the possibliity of adding a new characters via NFC a plus?
