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.
