Amiibo is Nintendo's line of NFC figurines for use with compatible games. Similar to previous lines produced by other companies such as Skylanders or Disney Infinity, players can transfer data to and from the figurines via a communication chip in the Wii U GamePad.
The first game compatible with Amiibo is Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. The Nintendo 3DS version of the game will receive a patch enabling support later in 2015. The previously released Mario Kart 8 is slated to receive a future update that will also make it compatible with the figurines, as well.
Amiibo will retail for $12.99 in the US starting November 21, 2014 when the first twelve figurines launch with the Super Smash Bros. line followed by another six in December. In Europe, Amiibo launches on November 28, 2014 with the second wave following on December 19, whereas Australia and New Zealand get the first wave on November 28, 2014 and the second wave on December 12. In Japan, both waves will launch simultaneously on December 6, 2014.
In 2015, an accessory for Nintendo 3DS will be released to allow Amiibo compatibility with titles released for the handheld. The upcoming New Nintendo 3DS/XL features built-in NFC support and thus will not require the accessory to support Amiibo.
