    I see. So you plug it into the wii u and you can play as that character? Wouldn't it just be better to have the character in the game to begin with?

    Sorry I am not being rude. I'm not sure I understand. I never played sky landers. It's cool you get a toy with it I guess

    I'm just curious how Smash Brothers works without Amiibos. It might be a good idea for Nintendo to have non Amiibos matches search options when searching for matches online

    I think Nintendo should have mentioned how Smash Brothers will work without the Amiibos. For all we know Smash Brothers could come with just the option to use your Miis. The only way to use other characters is to buy the Amiibos. Nintendo should have said something

    Okay, so wait a minute? Are these basically like their own little game in which your figure fights against another? That's what I seem to be reading into this, doesn't seem like it has any direct correlation between any game.

    Yeah that's what came to mind first. Surely not though.

    ok time for me answer a bit it was made for their own specific content with Disney infinity, but will branch out to other games like smash bro's and mario kart if you bought it for the former. But it was made for Disney infinity.
    as mention the rundown here

    Sony, EA, Ubisoft, and Nintendo’s Big E3 Announcements

    We've got more cool stuff from E3 as Vic and Marissa recap the biggest announcements from Sony, EA, Ubisoft, and Nintendo in the Rundown.


    I remember reading on siliconera that it wouldn't be mandatory for other games if you don't want to buy or use them. but I'll let them put up another article from Nintendo to reconfirm it. it's always better hearing for the people that are making these things

    But the question is if we dont buy these things. Will the other characters still be unlockable & useable in game like always ? Or are we paying $60 to use our Mii & if you want to use other characters you gotta buy the toys

    Okay, reading up on this some more, I'm not seeing anything that says these were made for Disney Infinity. I don't think that's true.

    They way I'm reading this information is that your figure doesn't actually unlock anything, but if you use your figure with one of those games, it levels up the stats on your figure, so it's almost like your playing with your Peach, for example, in Smash. It seems it also has it's own little game built in where your figures can battle against each other.

    That's the impression I'm getting from this. It's nothing about unlocking content in games, it's sort of like it's own minigame that you can upgrade through other games.

    EDIT: Here's a kotaku article that seems to break it down the most

    No Tronny I Said they started off as their own personal content for Disney infinity for the Wii u which inspired them to make it's own thing from Nintendo themselves, they saw how much money sky landers made also and how popular DI is doing and it became it's own thing onto it's self most of that info was put up in the Wii U (past Thread's of it )thread from the older threads when they were talking about the conception.

    All from siliconera. and I don't have time to drag that stuff up. and the only thing(content wise) with these figures is they each of them will have their own unique stats from each other.

    Uh, did you edit your post? I could've sworn you said the exact words. Oh well, maybe not. Anyway, here's some photos of the packagiNG:

    Nintendo Amiibo Launch Details

    Nintendo has announced the launch details for their new amiibo toy line. Twelve figures will be available at launch: Mario, Peach, Link, Samus, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Pikachu, Kirby, Fox, Marth, Villager and the Wii Fit Trainer (see above). Each one of them will cost $13. A precise launch date hasn’t been named, but they’ll hit stores at the same time as the first compatible game, Super Smash Bros for the Wii U, which will be released sometime this holiday season. Inspired by Skylanders and Disney Infinity, the amiibo toys use the near field communication (NFC) technology of the Wii U and 3DS to unlock new in-game content, and they’ll work across multiple different games. Along with Super Smash Bros, the other confirmed titles are Mario Kart 8, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Mario Party 10, and Yoshi’s Woolly World. Expect more games and figures to be announced soon.

    $13 is the same as an individual figure for Disney Infinity, though they may just scale to that. I thought they'd launch the initial set before the game came out, though. Figured they'd want to get the whole roster out by the time the Wii U version comes out.

    http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias=aps&field-keywords=Dinsey+Infinity

    Amazon has every Infinity individual figure at $12.99 base figure. They have bundles, though, that break down to more, like two for $30, which would be $15. But all single figures are listed for $12.99, doubt it's different elsewhere. Skylanders doesn't seem to have individual figures from what I searched, but they have a lot of two packs for $20-25, so they actually might be a little cheaper.

    Nintendo’s Amiibos are adorable little action figures I look forward to staring at while they find a home on my desk, but as of right this moment, their application seems limited.

    You should probably just keep this stuff in the Wii U thread, zenith. I don't think anyone besides us actually frequents this thread.

    It seems the Amiibos have gotten a downgrade.

    Like, the quality. It's mostly limited to the more realistic figures though.
