Got a collection of amiibo figures displayed around your Wii U? It?s time to bring ?em down and dust off the shelf?soon, you?ll be able to use them with your 3DS and 2DS as well.
Nintendo?s NFC Reader/Writer, which was announced in 2014 alongside the reveal of the amiibo line, can scan an amiibo figure and convert its data into a form that the 3DS family?s infrared sensors can pick up. They?re cross-compatible, too?scanning your favorite amiibo character into your 3DS won?t lock you out from using it on your Wii U, nor vice versa.
The NFC Reader/Writer will hit stores in North America on September 25. Europeans must wait slightly longer for an October 2 release. Its price is listed at $19.99.
