Nintendo’s Amiibos will soon have the ability to unlock portions of classic NES and SNES games for free in a Wii U app that is expected to arrive in the first half of 2015.
In most cases, it will be in yesterday's mail, but it could be today or a couple of days ago. When you're ready to pull the trigger, just click on the Letter Bomb message icon.The process will take about a minute, so be patient. If you run into any issues along the way it's probably because you don't have the right version of the Wii System Menu.Nintendo released two charts in the report: One listing, by region, the highest-sales Amiibos among players (“sell-through”) and the other listing (also by region) the biggest retailer buys (“sold-in”).It’s telling that the top three figurines among gamers in the U. and Canada — Marth, Villager, and Wii Fit Trainer — are completely absent from the sold-in chart.Tapping select Amiibos on the Game Pad’s near-field communication (NFC) area allows players to access “highlighted scenes” of NES or SNES titles.
The way the report is worded, it sounds like there’s one game associated with a given Amiibo, and multiple “scenes” accessible for each game.A time limit prevents players from running through the entire game, but there’s no limit on the number of time each scene can be accessed.The report also addresses the increasing rarity of various Amiibo figurines.The cards are cheaper to produce (and hopefully cheaper to buy than the Amiibos), and they’re expected to ship in 2015.The report also promises to re-release select figurines when they’re essential to one game or another.“It is difficult for us to promise to continuously ship all of the amiibo figures,” it reads.
