amiibo is certainly turning out to be a big thing in Nintendo's eyes. Whether or not the rewards for utilizing each amiibo is worthy to you, Nintendo plans to implement all sorts of bonuses. It appears right now that every amiibo is meant to do 'something' in each game though games not featuring certain characters may have more limited uses or lesser-valued ones. We've had plenty of threads on here for amiibo and I'm sure that will continue. Still, I wanted to establish a general discussion thread that doesn't have a specific focus or thought. We'll also use this thread for informing the forums about upcoming news regarding new waves of amiibo or new compatibility. Enjoy! Tell us which amiibo you're planning to get! To get the party started, here are the various waves of amiibo on their way, compatibility information from Nintendo's website, and various links to other threads regarding amiibo.
Super Smash Bros for Wii U, Mario Kart 8, Hyrule Warriors, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Mario Party 10, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Yoshi's Woolly World, Splatoon, CodeName: S.T.E.A.M., ACE COMBAT ASSAULT HORIZON LEGACY, Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, and more…
In other news, my Super Mario amiibo look great. I picked up Luigi, Yoshi, Toad, and Gold Mario. After seeing them all next to each other... I had to pick up Peach and Bowser. Mario is next once he's sold solo. I gave up my Mario Party 10 preorder since I just don't see myself playing it any time soon.
I think the whole SMB line looks great, but since they're functionally identical to the SB line, I'm cool not getting them all. Peach is the biggest upgrade to me, so I'll get her, and Luigi rules, so that's why I got him.
