What do amiibo figures do?
amiibo are interactive figures that can give you access to extra content or other features in compatible software.
Specific features depend on the amiibo and the compatible game. Some games, like Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, will save certain game data to the amiibo figure. Other games, such as Mario Kart 8 and Hyrule Warriors, will give you bonus content just for tapping an amiibo to the GamePad.
