amiibo are a line of interactive "toys-to-life" products created by Nintendo for use in a variety of games. amiibo are comparable to products like Skylanders or Disney Infinity, using near-field communication technology to communicate with compatible systems and access content in games. Although originally launched as figures, amiibo cards were later released starting with Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. The line was originally launched for use with Wii U software Later on, amiibo support was added to New Nintendo 3DS systems natively while original Nintendo 3DS family models was later added. Finally, the Nintendo Switch supports amiibo natively.[1]

Production

Nintendo have attempted a similar concept to the amiibo platform in the past: the e-Reader, a peripheral device for the Game Boy Advance released in 2001 that could scan special cards to unlock exclusive content in games. While fairly successful in Japan, the e-Reader was discontinued only one year after its release in the west. Nintendo was approached by Toys for Bob and its parent Activision with a deal to be a partner for their in-development Skylanders franchise, though Nintendo would turn them down.[2] In 2013, Nintendo would first experiment with making use of the Wii U GamePad's NFC features in games with Pokemon Rumble U, which was released alongside a series of Pokémon figurines in a similar method to other games using this style of figure.

During their financial briefing in March 2014, Nintendo revealed their in-development NFC figurine platform, codenamed "NFP" ("Nintendo Figure Platform" or "NFC Featured Platform"), stating that the figures would be compatible with multiple games and that they would feature data that would tell the system what the figure is, as well as that more information would be revealed at E3 2014. During their Nintendo Digital Event that year, Nintendo fully unveiled the product line, now called "amiibo", with the debut of the first figures in the Super Smash Bros. series.

Functionality

amiibo are used with compatible software by tapping them onto the NFC reader for compatible hardware. On the Wii U, this is on the bottom right corner of the Wii U GamePad. For Nintendo 3DS family systems, the Nintendo 3DS NFC Reader/Writer accessory must be used, while on New Nintendo 3DS systems the NFC reader is built-in under the touch screen. Wii U amiibo support was added with firmware version 5.3.0, while Nintendo 3DS systems were given amiibo compatibility with version 9.6.0. For Nintendo Switch, NFC reader/writers are built into the Joy-Con R and the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller.[1]

When an amiibo is registered for the first time, the player can personalize their amiibo by designating an owner and giving them a nickname. An amiibo can be used on any person's device, though the data on the amiibo is unique to that figure and is recognized as such by the hardware.

Games compatible with amiibo can use them in two different ways:

Read Only The hardware only reads the data on the amiibo to unlock bonus content in compatible games.
Read/Write The hardware reads the data on the amiibo to unlock content in compatible games, and saves data from the game onto the amiibo itself. Data from only one game can be saved onto any amiibo at one time, and must be deleted in order to save data from another game.

The Super Mario series is the second series of amiibo to be released. The series released alongside Mario Party 10, on March 20, 2015, and consists of six main amiibo figurines depicting six of the major Mario characters.

The Super Mario line also features two "limited edition" amiibo; Mario - Gold Edition was released alongside the first wave of amiibo (exclusively at Wal-Mart in North America), while Mario - Silver Edition was released later, on May 29, 2015.

Splatoon

Inkipedia logo.png This section is a short summary of the Splatoon amiibo.
Inkipedia features a more in-depth article.

During the Splatoon Direct, it was confirmed that there would be a Splatoon amiibo series. The first set of amiibo consists of three amiibo figures initially released alongside the game in May 2015. While the Inkling Boy and Inkling Girl amiibo are both available individually, the Inkling Squid amiibo is available only in the Splatoon three-pack set in North America, and exclusively as part of a game bundle in Europe; in Japan all three amiibo were released individually.

Later, it was announced that the characters Callie and Marie would be receiving amiibo figures. The two figures will be released in July 2016; in North America they are only available as a bundle pack, while in other regions they will be released individually. Color variants of the initial set of amiibo were also revealed, to be released on the same day. As before, while the Inkling Boy and Inkling Girl were released individually in all regions, the Inkling Squid is only available in a three-pack bundle in North America, while in all other regions it will be available individually.

Even later, it was announced that three additional Inkling amiibo would be released alongside Splatoon 2. Unlike previous waves, all three amiibo will be released individually in all regions.[3]

A pair of amiibo dioramas have also been released alongside the second set of amiibo, in July 2016. One depicts the Kelp Dome stage, while the other is a Squid Sisters concert stage. For the latter, a New Nintendo 3DS system can be placed under the diorama so that the top screen fits in the place of the prop screen.[13]

Super Mario Bros. 30th Anniversary

Two special amiibo have been released for the thirtieth anniversary of Super Mario Bros., both depicting an 8-bit Mario with both his classic and modern color schemes.[14]

Yoshi's Woolly World

Super Mario Wiki logo.png This section is a short summary of the Yoshi's Woolly World amiibo.
Super Mario Wiki features a more in-depth section.

The Yoshi's Wooly World amiibo were released alongside the game in June of 2015 in Europe, and October in other regions. These amiibo are unique in that they are yarn plushes rather than plastic figures, with the NFC chip inside the bottom of the figure itself rather than using a base. Three amiibo were released, in three different colors (green, pink, and light-blue).

A "Mega Yarn Yoshi", a larger Green Yarn Yoshi, was later released[15], exclusively at Toys "R" Us in North America.[16] The Mega Yarn Yoshi has the chip built into its foot. In addition, a portion of the box can be cut out and made into a stand for it.

During the September 1, 2016 Nintendo Direct, a yarn Poochy amiibo was announced. This amiibo was released alongside Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World in February 2017.[17]

Cards

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer was released alongside the first series of amiibo Cards, released in series rather than waves, and the first line of amiibo to not be released as figures.[19] Each pack contains six cards, with one special card per pack. Four series of cards have currently been released, with 100 cards each. In addition to these, the Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival bundle contains three exclusive cards: Stitches, Goldie, and Rosie. Finally, a promotional Isabelle card was distributed in the September/October 2015 issue of Character Parfait[20], a Japanese Nintendo-themed magazine targeted at young girls. Each card in these sets features the animal, their birthday, the card number, the type of animal they are, their star sign, a dice value, and a hand sign (rock, paper, or scissors).

For the 1.4 update for Animal Crossing: New Leaf, a new series of Animal Crossing amiibo cards, Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Welcome amiibo!, were released in November 2016 in most regions and in December in North America. This set features 50 cards[17], distributed at six per pack.

In Japan and Europe, in addition to the Welcome amiibo! series, another series of Animal Crossing cards have been released in collaboration with Sanrio, released in November 2016. These packs contain 2 cards and a special promotional seal.[21][22]

Shovel Knight

An amiibo figure of the titular Shovel Knight was produced to complement the Nintendo versions of the game. Like the game itself, the amiibo was manufactured and released by Yacht Club Games in most regions, while in Japan it was released by Nintendo alongside the game.

In August 2017, Yacht Club Games announced that three additional amiibo in this series would be released, based on the playable characters of the three additional campaigns: King Knight, Specter Knight, and Plague Knight. These amiibo will be released in a three-pack by Yacht Club Games.[27]

Trivia

While the product reached the prototyping stage, according to Shigeru Miyamoto, it was cancelled as Nintendo couldn't make it into a product that would meet child safety standards.[59]
  • In an E3 2014 interview, it was stated that Nintendo was experimenting with creating custom amiibo based on users' Mii characters. Shigeru Miyamoto also stated that an amiibo of his Mii exists.[60]
