During their E3 event, Nintendo introduced their new Amiibo figures for the Wii U. Amiibo are collectible figures that can also be used on the Wii U’s touch pad to insert the character figure into the game itself. While the new Super Smash Bros was the focus of these figures, other games were said to use these figures. You can watch the Amiibo trailer below.
Amiibo figures are your own personal character, it won’t be the same as someone else. Your Amiibo collects data when you use it, and grows stronger, allowing customization of moves and increasing of stats. When your Amiibo appears in game, you’re able to fight against it, fight along side it, or face it off against other Amiibo. These figures are sure to be popular among Nintendo users.
