Nintendo Amiibo Wave 4

amiibo4wave-nwm

Amiibo lovers, get ready to expand your amiibo collection! Coming this Spring 2015, Nintendo is releasing six new amiibos ($12.99) making this their fourth wave of releases.  In this up and coming amiibo series, expect to see Charizard from the Pokemon series, Lucina and Robin from the Fire Emblem series, Ness from the EarthBound series, Pac-Man from the Pac-Man series, and Wario from the Mario series.

If you haven’t already heard, amiibos are data-storing figurines that can connect to your Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Depending on the amiibo you have, it will unlock special features in a game that you wouldn’t normally experience. Similar to their already released counterparts, all of these amiibos are compatible with the Super Smash Bros. game for the Wii U, allowing you to level and customize the skills of your amiibo.

Because the amiibo is a fairly new product, there are only a few Nintendo titles that are compatible with them at the moment. Among these titles are Mario Kart 8, Hyrule Warriors, and Super Smash Bros. amiibo connectivity will also be available in the following upcoming games: Mario Party 10, Code Name S.T.E.A.M., Yoshi’s Woolly World, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, and Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. Currently, only the Robin and Lucina amiibos from this series will have special perks that allow them to become playable characters in the upcoming Nintendo 3DS game, Code Name S.T.E.A.M.

Nintendo Amiibo Wave 3

AmiiboWave3-nwm

Currently one of the hottest trends in the gaming community is Nintendo’s amiibo ($12.99) figurines for the Wii U. Created to enhance the experience of Nintendo titles such as Super Smash Bros. and Mario Party 10, the amiibo series is currently on its third wave of releases (February 2015) with a fourth on the way (Spring 2015.)

The characters featured in the third series of the amiibo will include Shulk from the Xeno series, Ike from the Fire Emblem series, Sheik and Toon Link from the Zelda series, Lucario from the Pokemon series, Meta Knight and King Dedede from the Kirby series, Rosalina and Bowser from the Mario series, Mega Man from the Mega Man series, and Sonic from the Sonic series.

All the amiibos are compatible with the Super Smash Bros. Wii U game and with the amiibo connected, you can level and customize your amiibo to your own liking. However, not all amiibos are compatible with every Nintendo series. For Mario Kart 8, connecting the Toon Link amiibo will unlock a special racing costume for your Mii but not for the other third wave amiibos.

There are also Nintendo games where all amiibos are compatible but connecting a specific amiibo will bring a better reward. In the Wii U game, Hyrule Warriors, all connected amiibos will allow you to get a three-star or lower rated weapon once a day. However, connecting the Sheik amiibo allows you to get a three-star or higher rated weapon and connecting the Toon Link amiibo lets you use a special spinner weapon not found in the game otherwise.

Nintendo amiibo

AmiiboMario-nwm

Nintendo is introducing a new way to experience gaming through character figurines known as amiibo ($12.99). Players can connect their amiibo with compatible Wii U games so that their amiibo can interact with the game. To connect your amiibo to the game, all you have to do is hold the amiibo over the Wii U gamepad. The first set of amiibo that will come out are amiibos for the Super Smash Bros. game on the Wii U.

Among these amiibo are some of our favorite heroes and heroines such as Mario, Peach, and Yoshi from the Super Mario series, Pikachu from the Pokemon series, Samus Aran from the Metroid series, Marth from Fire Emblem, Link from the Legend of Zelda, Fox from Star Fox, Kirby, and Donkey Kong. However, we have some other familiar faces such as the Villager from Animal Crossing and the Wii Fit Trainer from the Wii Fit games.

An example of how these amiibos will work is that connecting the amiibos while playing Super Smash Bros. will allow you to fight against, fight with, or watch it fight against other characters. Your amiibo will be able to increase its attack and defense and also learn new fighting techniques and its leveling capabilities will be capped at level 50. All the changes that are made to the amiibo are then stored on the amiibo itself.
