amiibo Compatibility

amiibo figures and cards are compatible with a number of Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games. Simply tap an amiibo while playing compatible software and you’ll uncover surprising new features, modes, weapons or character customisations. View our compatibility charts below to see which games and amiibo work together.

  Nintendo 3DS and 2DS Compatibility

You can use amiibo on your New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL by tapping them to the NFC area on the bottom screen. Alternatively, using the NFC Reader . Writer Accessory you can use amiibo on your Nintendo 2DS, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL.

  What will your amiibo do?

Some games only read data from amiibo; for example, tapping an amiibo might bring that character or some of their attributes into the game! Read / Write Others can read and write specific data to and from your amiibo, so their abilities can change as you play.

Our compatibility charts confirm which function each game will use. Please note: It's only possible to store data from one game that uses the read / write function on an amiibo at any one time.
