What Is Amiibo?

For the unacquainted, Amiibo is a toys-to-life platform by Nintendo. It consists of a wireless communications and storage protocol that connects these figurines to Nintendo’s video game consoles.

Amiibo toys use near field communication (NFC) to interact with supported video game software, thus allowing data to be transferred in and out of games and across multiple platforms.
