Amiibo was an odd direction for Nintendo to choose. Sure, we had Skylander figures for that franchise, but Nintendo was going to adopt that idea for the then-upcoming Super Smash Bros. games. For a while, it seemed the idea would be limited to Smash Bros., but after yesterday’s Nintendo Direct, it’s clear that Nintendo is leveraging this idea for far more than just Smash Bros.. We have Amiibo already for Mario Party 10, and upcoming Amiibo for Splatoon and Yoshi’s Wooly World, as well as Amiibo cards for Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. Suffice it to say that, while I still don’t think this Amiibo idea has any lasting potential beyond the Wii U and New 3DS, Nintendo will probably try to keep with this for as long as possible.
Anyway, that doesn’t mean I’ve not been collecting Amiibo. This post is mainly just to list all the Amiibo that I have.
As of this writing, I have 14 Amiibo (13 Smash Bros. and 1 Super Mario). I have: Sonic, Mario, Zelda, Mega Man, Link, Toon Link, Sheik, Pit, Kirby, Yoshi, Pikachu, Samus, Fox, and Toad. I could easily get Luigi, Bowser, and Peach.
As far as actually using the Amiibo, I’ve used most of them at least once in Smash Bros (those that are compatible). I’ve leveled the Link Amiibo up to 50.
