What are the Nintendo amiibo figurines?

VG (20)

Nintendo has entered into the toys-to-life genre with cross-game, cross-format figurines and cards called amiibo. They connect to various titles from Nintendo’s range of games titles.

amiibo are collectable toy figurines of famous characters primarily from Nintendo’s catalogue of classic game series, but also featuring some popular stars from partner studios. The amiibo line was launched by Nintendo in November 2014, and differ from other entries in the toys-to-life genre in that they are not restricted in use to a single game, but can provide benefits and bonuses across a range of otherwise unconnected Nintendo titles.

What is the Toys-to-Life genre?

The toys-to-life genre is primarily populated by games that can communicate and interact with objects external to its virtual world. In less complex terms, it refers to titles where a toy connects to a console or handheld via near-field communication, usually triggering an event in the game. In some cases, the game can also send information, such as save files, back to the figurine for storage. The concept was popularised by the release of Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure by Activision in 2010, which sold over five million units. But it has since exploded thanks to support from a number of big profile titles, including the Disney Infinity series and Lego Dimensions.

How Do amiibo Work?

Both the New 3DS handheld and the Wii U GamePad have near-field communication built into their touchscreens. Each of the amiibo figurines also have near-field communication support built into their frame. When you place an amiibo onto the Nintendo GamePad, or onto the bottom screen on the New 3DS, near-field communication is triggered and the two will communicate with each other. At this point the magic will happen.

What that magic is depends on the game being played at the time. Unlike the other main toys-to-life games (Skylanders, Disney Infinity and Lego Dimensions), the effect may not be to bring that character into the world, but could instead unlock new items (such as costumes), new quests or provide other extensions to the gameplay.

What is amiibo Tap?

amiibo Tap is a completely free experience that ties into your amiibo figurines. While not in a game you simply tap an Amiibo (any Amiibo) on the Wii U GamePad and you will receive a gift. Inside that gift is three minutes of gameplay to enjoy from one of Nintendo’s classic NES or SNES titles. There are 30 titles from Nintendo’s back catalogue that can be activated and played. It’s definitely an enjoyable way to get some instant game action in with your newly acquired Amiibo characters.

What are amiibo Cards and which games are compatible?

The near-field communication feature of the New 3DS and GamePad works well with the amiibo, but it was always Nintendo’s intent to see other collectable merchandise ideas, and even various gameplay opportunities, make use of the NFC feature. The first main addition we’ve seen to the amiibo concept outside of figurines are collectable cards with NFC and in-game support.

The first title to experiment with this is Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer for 3DS, a game set in the Animal Crossing universe, best described as a life/farming simulation involving cute little critters. In this spin-off to the main series, you are tasked with decorating the homes of the various characters that live in the village, as well as landmark buildings such as libraries and schools. In addition to the base game, players can collect real cards from retailers as they might basketball or Magic The Gathering cards. These feature characters from Animal Crossing, which can be “played” into the game world via near-field communication.

In the case of Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, this brings the character into the game word, and often opens up additional gameplay options and activities. The release of the amiibo Cards for Happy Home Designer has been broken into seasons, with 100 cards available per season. To date three seasons have been released.

The Animal Crossing amiibo Cards also play a role in the Wii U title, Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival, which is effectively a Mario Party style board game experience. Cards can be “played” on the screen to compete in various minigames, or also to bring characters into the world to customise your game board.

There has yet to be any announcement on what other upcoming games may appear with amiibo Card support, although Pokémon instantly jumps to mind as a likely contender. One card has been announced for the upcoming Wii U title Pokkén Tournament, which is a Shadow Mewtwo card. This could be an indication that a full rollout of cards specific to that fighting title are in the works.

Do the amiibo work with all 3DS handhelds?

The amiibo figurines and the amiibo cards use near-field communication to work with compatible games. Unfortunately, the original 3DS, 2DS and 3DS XL handhelds did not come with near-field communication support built-in. It wasn’t until the release of the New 3DS and New 3DS XL in 2014 that we saw near-field communication become standard for the handheld.

The good news for owners of the earlier 3DS models who are interested in getting involved with the amiibo phenomenon is that Nintendo has released a solution. You can buy a peripheral – called an NFC Reader/Writer – that plugs into the older 3DS and gives it near-field communication features. Instead of placing a figure or card on the 3DS screen as you would with a New 3DS, you just tap it against the peripheral for the same result.
