Examples of "amiibo"
There are currently Amiibo figurines, 3 Amiibo card series, and 1
amiibo were also an influence on "Happy Home Designer" and a sister game, "", as the development team thought that "Animal Crossing" amiibo would be "cute", and brainstormed new gameplay concepts for the franchise that incorporated them. The two games also have integration with each other; houses designed in "Happy Home Designer" can appear in-game within "amiibo Festival". Eight series character amiibo were planned for release with "amiibo Festival". Upon their announcement, some expressed concerns with the series moving in a different gameplay direction; however Kyogoku noted that it and "amiibo Festival" were spin-offs, and don't necessarily represent where the mainline series would go in the future.
The application allows the player to scan Amiibo figures with the Wii U GamePad to unlock demos of NES and Super NES games. (Animal Crossing Amiibo cards are compatible for characters also released as Amiibo figures.) Each Amiibo figure randomly unlocks one game, which is tied to that specific amiibo. Each demo lasts three minutes and includes multiple scenes from the game, which are accessed by placing the same Amiibo to the GamePad to switch to the next scene. When each demo is finished, a link is given to purchase the game's Virtual Console version from the Nintendo eShop.
"Amiibo Festival" is a virtual board game similar in style to the "Mario Party" series. Playable "Animal Crossing" characters include Isabelle, K.K. Slider, Tom Nook, and Mable—four of the series's eight characters upon which Amiibo toys had been based. The game also supports the Amiibo cards which had debuted alongside "", and generally requires the use of Amiibo toys for play.
In 2015, Nintendo began to extend the Amiibo line into new form factors; on February 27, 2015, Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata revealed that the company had plans to release Amiibo-enabled trading cards. On April 1, 2015, Nintendo unveiled "", a spin-off in the "Animal Crossing" series that will utilise Amiibo cards. Nintendo also unveiled Amiibo yarn plushies as a tie-in for "Yoshi's Woolly World".
The Wii U, New Nintendo 3DS, and Nintendo Switch contain integrated NFC support, and can be used with Amiibo. On Wii U, Amiibo are scanned using an NFC reader contained within the Wii U GamePad. Amiibo support was formally introduced to the consoles' firmware in November and December 2014; these updates added an Amiibo menu to the system settings area, allowing users to scan, register, and erase data from Amiibo. The Nintendo Switch similarly features an NFC reader in both the Joy-Con R and Pro Controller.
During the E3 2015 "Nintendo Direct" on June 16, 2015, Activision revealed Bowser and Donkey Kong Amiibo (Hammer Slam Bowser and Turbo Charge Donkey Kong) and vehicles for use in "". These Amiibo are compatible with either the Skylanders games or Amiibo games by means of a mode switch on their bases. They will work across platforms in "Skylanders: SuperChargers".
Yoshi was also one of the 12 initial Amiibo figurines. As part of the release of "Yoshi's Woolly World", Yoshi Amiibo made out of yarn are either bundled with the game or sold separately. In addition to the regular-sized green, pink and light blue yarn Yoshi Amiibo, an 8-inch tall, green "Mega Yarn Yoshi" has been released.
Director Aya Kyogoku stated that the game was conceived as a vehicle for the creation of the first "Animal Crossing" Amiibo: "[H]onestly, we just wanted "Animal Crossing" amiibo. We wanted the company to make "Animal Crossing" amiibo, so that's why we made a game that works with them."
Amiibo can be used directly with the Nintendo Switch, Wii U GamePad, New Nintendo 3DS series, and with an adapter for the rest of the Nintendo 3DS series. By September 2016, Nintendo reported that 39 million Amiibo had been sold, along with 30.6 million Amiibo cards.
Supported games offer one of two kinds of Amiibo compatibility; the ability to access an Amiibo's NFC tag and store data, and read-only recognition. Each Amiibo largely corresponds to a specific game that can access its storage space, though some may have multiple games that can use it. However, each Amiibo can only store data from one compatible game at a time, meaning data must be deleted to use it with a different title. For example, a Mario Amiibo containing data from "Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS" and "Wii U" must have the data for that game deleted to store data from "Mario Party 10". Many games offer compatibility with specific Amiibo on a read-only basis, allowing for additional content to be unlocked in that game. For example, using certain Amiibo with "Mario Kart 8" unlocks costumes based on the corresponding Amiibo. Existing Wii U and 3DS games can receive updates that enable them to recognise Amiibo. Due to their co-development effort on "Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS" and "Wii U", Bandai Namco Entertainment were the first third-party publishers to embrace the Amiibo concept in some of their own games.
Amiibo Tap: Nintendo's Greatest Bits is an application developed and published by Nintendo for the Wii U, which is used for playing short demos of popular NES and Super NES video games by scanning relevant Amiibo figurines.

Mini Mario & Friends: Amiibo Challenge is a puzzle video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. The game is free to download on the Nintendo eShop, but requires Nintendo's Amiibo lineup in order to play; if the player has a unrecognized Amiibo, the game will put in Mini Spek instead of the Amiibo the person puts on the Wii U Gamepad. The "Mini Spek" is a character that resembles a blue wind-up block who has no special abilities. It was released in Japan in January 2016, and worldwide in April 2016.

The game is playable with the Wii U GamePad, Wii Remote, Wii Classic Controller, and Wii U Pro Controller.

The compatible characters include Mario, Luigi, Peach, Toad, Bowser, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Wario, Rosalina, Daisy and Waluigi.
In 2015, the "Game Grumps" were featured in the official reveal trailer for the "Shovel Knight" Amiibo figure.
Amiibo (2014) is a toys-to-life platform primarily based on Nintendo properties and characters, as well some third-party non-Nintendo characters like Pac-Man, Mega Man, Sonic the Hedgehog, Ryu and Cloud Strife that have appeared in Nintendo games. Launching in 2014 with figurines, Nintendo has since also deployed Amiibo-compatible playing cards, with plans for other media in the future. Unlike most other toys-to-life series, Amiibo does not have games dedicated exclusively to the use of the toys, but the characters are used throughout various Nintendo games. Amiibo toys can save players' progress data and information per game. They have even released plush toy Amiibo for "Yoshi's Woolly World" and "Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World", as well as cards for "" and "Mario Sports Superstars".
