Twelve figures ready to buy now.
With a release date of this year, likely alongside 'Super Smash Bros,' Nintendo's first twelve amiibo figures are now up for preorder.. Using the built-in NFC reader of the Wii U, and a new wireless accessory for the 3DS, these twelve figures are the key to accessing exclusive content in upcoming Nintendo such as 'Super Smash Bros.,' 'Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker,' 'Mario Party 10,' and 'Yoshi’s Woolly World.' Even 'Mario Kart 8' will make use of the new figures. Unlike older figure offerings, the amiibos have been designed specifically to store significant amounts of data, such as special 'Super Smash Bros.' fighter characteristics.
All twelve amiibo figures can be preordered here. These will undoubtedly be a hot holiday item, especially with the debut of 'Super Smash Bros.' for the Wii U. Preorder now or be sad later.
