Say 'Hello!' to all these Region Free Amiibo!


The Japanese amiibo characters are finally here! You might be surprised to hear that Nintendo have made our electronic pals fully region free, that means ease of import regardless of your console's region! 

So what are amiibo? Amiibo are Nintendo's iconic video game characters turned into NFC toys that work by placing a figurine onto the Wii U GamePad (also for the 3DS with a separate peripheral at a future date), the toys react depending on the game they are added to and add extra content to it! 

For example all the first wave figurines work with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U but some figures can be used for multiple games - even add costumes for your Mii in Mario Kart 8 or introduce new weapons like in Hyrule Warriors. Other (announced) games that will feature amiibo support include: Yoshi's Wooly World, Mario Party 10, and Captain Toad Treasure Tracker

The information stored on the amiibo is anything but static, updating and being modified by how and where you use the characters - including your own personal customization of the character. In Super Smash Bros. no two Mario amiibos are the same - depending on how you have trained him he will fight differently! You have very little direct control, but a lot of ways to indirectly affect your amiibo. The more you play with the amiibo the more you level up and unlock new options!

Every Super Smash Bros. character will be getting an amiibo so if your favorite has yet to be included keep an eye out!
