Discover amiibo, a brand new way to interact with your favourite Nintendo characters and games. If you touch your Wii U GamePad's NFC touch point with the figure while playing certain games, data on the chip will be transferred into the game and used in a range of ways. As you play, your figure's data will also be updated, so keep playing to make your amiibo unique!
Watch the video below to see amiibo in action.
The first set of figures is for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
See your amiibo battle and watch it grow
In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U you can transfer the data from your amiibo so it can appear in the game and fight for you. As your amiibo fights, it will develop its own unique attributes and skills, becoming stronger and learning new moves. You can even add your own twist to combat by customising special moves!
More amiibo will be released, based on Super Smash Bros. all-stars!
amiibo will go on sale at the launch of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, with figures of Mario, Link and more to choose from!
Connect to a wide range of games!
In addition to Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, you'll be able to use amiibo in a number of other games - and how they're used depends on the game! In the future, figures of a wide variety of characters from different franchises will be released.
amiibo support is currently planned for the following Wii U games:
• Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
• Mario Kart 8
• Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
• Mario Party 10
• Yoshi's Woolly World
Also compatible with Nintendo 3DS and 2DS
As well as working with Wii U, amiibo can also be used with Nintendo 3DS and 2DS via an accessory that is planned for release in 2015. Details about compatible software planned for Nintendo 3DS will be announced in the future.
