amiibo tap: Nintendo's Greatest Bits
Ads keep the MarioWiki independent and free :)
amiibo tap: Nintendo's Greatest Bits, known in Europe and Australia as amiibo Touch & Play: Nintendo Classics Highlights, is an application for Wii U in which players can scan amiibo to play trial versions of various NES and SNES titles. It was released on the Nintendo eShop as a free download on April 23, 2015 in Japan, on April 30, 2015 in Europe and North America, and on May 1 in Australia.
When the player scans an amiibo using the Wii U GamePad's NFC reader, a specific NES or SNES game will be unlocked, each of which allows the player to play three-minute highlights of various points in the game each time they scan the amiibo designated to that game. The player can switch between different scenes by scanning the same amiibo multiple times. Each scene is 180 seconds long. The games assigned to each amiibo are completely random, and are not always based on the amiibo character's series. (For example, scanning a Mario amiibo may unlock a game unrelated to the Mario franchise.)
The application contains a total of 30 playable NES and SNES games, 12 of which are Mario games.
