About the Game

Owners of the original Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL and Nintendo 2DS can use the NFC Reader/Writer accessory to enjoy amiibo functionality.

Tap an amiibo figure or card to the NFC Reader/Writer (while playing compatible software) and you’ll uncover surprising new features!

Please note - New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL consoles have an area on the bottom screen with NFC reading and writing functions built-in, so a NFC Reader/Writer accessory is not required for these consoles.

Easy to use. But takes AAA battery's, I would have paid a bit more for a rechargeable unit.

Very easy to use and comes with batteries. There is a single button on the front to turn it on and off. Delivery was very quick too.
