What is amiibo?
amiibo are interactive figures that can give you access to extra content or other features in compatible software.
Bring your favourite Nintendo character to life by tapping amiibo figures to the Wii U GamePad to interact with compatible Wii U games – no portal required! And, with the New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL, amiibo support is built-in.
If you wish to use amiibo on your Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL or Nintendo 2DS you will need an additional accessory to connect your amiibo to your console.
How it works
What can amiibo do?
Add a character to the game
Tap into Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U and your amiibo will appear as a "figure player".
Battle against amiibo fighters, team up with them, or send them in against your friends’ amiibo fighters in a multiplayer battle.
Level-up or customise your amiibo
In Super Smash Bros., bring an amiibo into the action as a figure player! The more your figure players fight, the quicker they will increase in level. The higher your figure player’s level is, the better its attack and defence stats will be!
