Concept artwork for amiibo.

amiibo is a brand of "Toys to Life" products[1] consisting of near field communication-based figurines that can have data read and written on them, used as add-ons to games with amiibo compatibility. Originally referred to internally under the working title "Nintendo Figure Platform" ("NFP") in development[1], the first line of amiibo, based upon Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, launched on the same day as Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, the first amiibo-compatible game, and there are amiibo lines based upon various games and franchises[2], such as the Super Mario and Yoshi's Woolly World lines.

Features[edit]

amiibo can be used with Wii U software by placing a figure on the NFC sensor near-field communicator built into the Wii U GamePad under the D-pad; the console must also be updated to at least version 5.3.0. A peripheral for the Nintendo 3DS has also been released in the fall of 2015 that wirelessly connects to the 3DS to send and receive data[3]; the New Nintendo 3DS, however, features a built in near-field communicator on the bottom touch-screen. amiibo come with data already on them, but data can also be written on them by the hardware. Several figures will be compatible with multiple games; for example, the Super Smash Bros. line Mario figure can also be used in Mario Party 10.[4] Multiple games can read an amiibo's data, while only one game's data can be written to the figure at a time.[5]

In addition to figurines, a card format is also available.[6] Additionally, an app released for the Wii U, amiibo tap: Nintendo's Greatest Bits, allows players to unlock demos of certain NES and SNES titles by scanning amiibo.[7]

In the Wii U version, scanning either one of the above two amiibo will let players play the Mario League and Sonic League modes respectively, where the player can win the Gold Mario and Super Sonic costumes in each one.[8] Amiibo-read-only-icon.svg

WiiU MarioParty10 pkg.jpg Mario Party 10 Scanning certain amiibo allows the player to access amiibo Party mode, in which the amiibo characters are used as game pieces to travel across the board; the player can also unlock special boards based upon the scanned amiibo to play on in amiibo Party. amiibo with data from the game can also save Tokens obtained in the mode. Touching any amiibo figure to the Wii U GamePad controller gives the player a Scratch Bonus, used to win Mario Party Points, and special figure bases for amiibo with Mario Party 10 data.

NA MPSR boxart.jpg Mario Party: Star Rush Compatible with the Super Mario series line of amiibo, the functionality differs with each game mode. When an amiibo is used in Toad Scramble, players can control that character, with that character also having stronger stats. In Coinathlon, players can use that character scanned additionally with two extra items. In Balloon Bash and Mario Shuffle, players receive a Special Dice Block at the start of the game. If Mario Party 10 data is on the amiibo figure, a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Dice Block is rewarded depending on if the amiibo has special Tokens saved to it. If a Dr. Mario amiibo is used in Rhythm Recital, a new music track can be used. In Challenge Tower, if a player gets a Game Over, an amiio figure can be used to continue right from that spot; however, each figure can used only once per day. In Boo's Block Party, if the Boo amiibo is scanned, Boo appears in the background. In Character Museum, the player can collect stamps with amiibo. NonMario amiibo can be used in the main hub; they simply cause a variety of effects to occur, such as many balloons floating up. Amiibo-read-only-icon.svg
This game only reads the data on the amiibo.
MarioSportsSuperstarsAmiiboBoxart.jpg Mario Sports Superstars The game comes with its own set of amiibo cards, featuring one character for each of the five sports. Players can unlock star versions of characters by tapping the card in. Tapping three cards in unlocks the Road to Superstar mode, where, if completed, bestows a Superstar status to the characters who completed the mode. In tennis, tapping in an amiibo card gives the player a partner of the character on the card. amiibo can additionally be used up to three times per day to buy a 3 pack digital card package off the shop.

Super Mario Maker - Artwork 04.png Super Mario Maker Scanning amiibo of certain characters allows them to be inserted into the game as a power-up, though only in the Super Mario Bros. graphical style. By placing the character inside of a block, they appear as a Mystery Mushroom when hit, which transforms Mario into Costume Mario, resembling that character. Accompanying sound effects also result, and all costumes can do a pose by pressing +Control Pad up. By scanning either 30th Anniversary 8-bit Mario amiibo, a Big Mushroom appears in the game, which will turn Mario into Big Mario.[9] Big Mario's color scheme depends on which amiibo is scanned.

Super Smash Bros for Nintendo 3DS US final boxart.jpg Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Once an amiibo is scanned in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, the player can play with them in a team battle or against them. They are referred as Figure Players (shortened as FP) in-game. They are actually being controlled by CPUs and players can train them, until they reach level 50. The player can customize their power, defense, and speed values at their own will with the obtained custom parts. By playing as FPs, they may grow by level (which caps at 50) and change their strategy depending what their opponents usually do. During fights, they may obtain gifts, such as Trophies, Equipment, and Gold, which are given to the player. Amiibo-read-write-icon.svg
These games both read and write data on the amiibo.
SSBWiiU NA Boxart.png Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
YWW NA Boxart.png Yoshi's Woolly World Once a Yoshi amiibo is scanned in Yoshi's Woolly World, another Yoshi appears, which mimics the moves of the player. The player can also make a Yarn ball out of the Yoshi, and throw it like in multiplayer mode. Players can save one Yoshi design onto the Yarn Yoshi amiibo. Scanning any other amiibo unlocks a Yoshi design based on the character.[10]

The amiibo in Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World have the same functionality as the Wii U original. Scanning a Yarn Poochy amiibo summons Poochy in a level, and also unlocks new challenges in Poochy Dash that award Poochy designs. All amiibo-based Yoshi designs from the Wii U game returns, with several amiibo-based Yoshi designs being added into the game.[11]

Yoshi's Woolly World[edit]

Skylanders: SuperChargers[edit]

While they are primarily meant to be Skylanders figures, the bases of these figures act as a switch that, when twisted, switches between the Skylander mode, and an amiibo mode which allows the figures to be used in amiibo-compatible games compatible with other versions of the figure. These figures are included with the Skylanders: SuperChargers starter packs for Nintendo consoles; Turbo Charge Donkey Kong comes with the Wii U version, while Hammer Slam Bowser comes with the Wii and Nintendo 3DS versions; each figure also comes with a personal vehicle.[22] The standard versions were later released separately alongside their vehicles.

The figures are later compatible with the Wii U version of Skylanders: Imaginators.

Card list[edit]

Main article: List of Mario Sports Superstars amiibo cards

There are a total of 90 amiibo cards in this series. Each of the eighteen playable characters receive one card for each of the five sports.

Controversy[edit]

The availability of certain amiibo have been subject to criticism. For example, the Target exclusive shipments of the Rosalina & Luma amiibo have been stated to be ceased permanently, limiting the availability of the amiibo in the U.S. until a restock at Target.com came mid July 2015.[23] Immediately following the preorder release of the Wave 4 amiibo, GameStop servers experienced a major overload and shut down temporarily for nearly an hour. The incident has been met with intense criticism and frustration by fans who wished to purchase the amiibo.[24] John Vignocchi, the executive producer of Disney Infinity, another game that uses NFC figures, has stated "[An intentional shortage] is irresponsible and rude to your hardcore fans.", referring to the amiibo shortages.[25] Satoru Iwata has noticed the issue and has apologized for it; he has promised that more will be manufactured to meet the demand in the future.[26] The amiibo cards, which are confirmed to be released in the near future, are intended to address the amiibo figurine shortages.[27]

Trivia[edit]

  • The word "new" in the new Nintendo 3DS logo is stylized similarly to the amiibo logo.
