Not sure what Amiibo figures are? Read the brief description below.
Amiibo’s are Nintendo’s wireless communications and storage protocol, for use between compatible toys-to-life figurines, and the Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, and Nintendo Switch gaming platforms. These figurines are similar in form and functionality to that of the Skylanders and Disney Infinity series. They may work with multiple games and along with the figure you may also receive new outfits, power-ups or other fun bonuses. Each character can be added to individual games, come with the aforementioned bonuses, can be levelled up and customised and will unlock new adventures.
And of course, if you don’t happen to own a compatible console, you could always just collect them as they do look rather cool.
