An amiibo is a figurine that can enhance your gaming experience. These "toy to life" figurines are compatible with Nintendo Switch, New Nintendo 3DS XL, Nintendo 3DS XL and Wii U. Simply tap your Nintendo amiibo to your game's near-field communication (NFC) reader and let the fun begin as each figure interacts within your game. Nintendo has created dozens of amiibo figures, such as Mario, Link from The Legend of Zelda, Pikachu and many more. (One thing to keep in mind is that not every amiibo is compatible with every game.) As you add to your collection, you may want to consider buying a multimedia cabinet to store your games and amiibo.
Enjoying your Nintendo amiibo figures.
So what, exactly, do amiibo do? It depends on the amiibo, and it depends on the game. You may be able to add a character to your game, get in-game bonuses, level up or even unlock new levels. For instance, in the Nintendo Switch gameSuper Mario Odyssey, you can access new outfits for Mario or get help while playing tricky levels. In Mario Kart 8, you will get special racing suits for your character. These are only some of the enhanced features you will see.
While you are playing games and enjoying the benefits of your amiibo, you may want to use a special gaming chair to play in complete comfort. Headphones are also a nice addition to your gaming experience, especially if you are playing a handheld system and want to hear your game without distractions. Whatever you decide about adding any other gaming accessories, if you are a fan of Nintendo games, you should definitely check out amiibo.
