Nintendo amiibo

The Nintendo amiibo has changed the gaming experience in so many ways. As gaming has increased in popularity, so have the ways in which people can feel more involved and have a more personalised gaming experience. Hence the development of Nintendo amiibo, a toys-to-life accessory that was released in 2014 by Nintendo, a longstanding multinational video game company that develops and publishes video games and video game consoles.

A fun fact is that the amiibo name relates well to the word "friend" in French, Spanish, and Japanese, as explained by Bill Trinen, the translator at Nintendo. Think of amiibos as your personal gaming friend, who will help you go further and game better. A Nintendo amiibo is a figurine that has an NFC touchpoint on the back that connects to the Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, and Nintendo Switch video game consoles. Upon connection, special content will become unlocked in compatible games. This special content includes the ability to score additional characters, bonuses, and special items. What we find the coolest is that one amiibo may work with multiple games. Some games can also save game data to an amiibo.

A popular Nintendo amiibo for The Legend of Zelda games is the Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild Guardian amiibo. For the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe game, you can earn a character-specific Mii racing suit by tapping a compatible amiibo, such as the Super Mario Luigi amiibo.

At StockX, you can also find lots of other Nintendo products to enhance your gaming needs, such as Pro Controllers, Switch consoles, and the Super NES Classic Edition.
