Nintendo Launches Official amiibo Website on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Nintendo have launched the official amiibo website with more details on how the figures will work on Wii U.

The amiibo figures, which contain NFC chips, allow players to use Nintendo characters in a range of games - from fighters in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U to unlocking costumes in Mario Kart 8. The websites highlight which figures will be available, how amiibo works and compatible games.

Players simply tap the amiibo figure on the Wii U GamePad NFC touchpoint, and surprising new features can be unlocked in compatible software.
