Pikachu... Who knew that yellow thing could be so awesome.
Introducing amiibo™: character figures designed to connect and interact with compatible games. By holding the amiibo over your Wii U GamePad, you'll open up new experiences within each corresponding game.
Your amiibo will store data as you play, making it your very own, one-of-a-kind amiibo.
Send your amiibo in to fight and grow stronger!
In the Super Smash Bros. for Wii U game, you'll be able to scan your amiibo into the game. You'll then be able to fight against your amiibo, team up with it in battle or watch it battle other in-game characters. Your amiibo will be able to increase its attack and defense stats and even learn new fighting tactics.
At launch, there will be around 10 different amiibo figures available. More will be released during holiday 2014 and throughout 2015.
