Amiibo Logo

amiibo are a product created by Nintendo as accessories for the Wii U home console and the Nintendo 3DS family of handheld systems. amiibo are small figures made in the image of various video game characters from games on Nintendo system. A figure's base contains readable (and in some cases, writable) near field communication (NFC) data, which can be scanned using a Nintendo system's dedicated NFC feature to unlock or activate various features in selected games. On the Wii U, the GamePad incorporates an NFC reader, located directly underneath the D-pad and indicated by a special icon. The New Nintendo 3DS features an NFC reader underneath the touch screen, requiring players to place their amiibo on the screen. Other 3DS family devices require the use of a dedicated scanning device, sold separately. Since NFC data is stored in a figurine's base, no ill effect will occur should the figure itself somehow become detached from its base.
