  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.
