How Amiibo Will Work in Super Smash Bros.


Earlier today, Nintendo announced the amiibo statues, which contain NFC chips. The first game they will be used with is Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. How will they work, though? In a roundtable discussion at E3, Masahiro Sakurai explains. Amiibo figurines will function as CPU characters that become stronger as you fight with them. They can be raised to level 50, with difficulty exceeding a “level 9” computer player. They will also adapt to your play style and become more challenging for opponents. Sakurai hopes players will use Amiibos as their partners in battle.
