    Gambia, The
    same rfid chip like the amiibos (ntag213), yet different implementation.

    afaik there isn't a one click easy solution yet, but there's a dedicated subreddit (google "lego dimension hacks")

    edit: brainfarted regarding the rfid chip, different from amiibo

    Actually, Amiibos use NTAG215.

    To my knowledge, no one has been able to "trick" the WiiU into thinking an amiibo has been read by the NFC reader. You can, however, write amiibo data to your own NTAG215 tags, as mentioned above. It would be very beneficial, if someone was able to "trick" the WiiU, without the NFC tagsā€”for instance...having the system read the data from an SD Card!?! I'm guessing you would need a very talented developer, like @dimok, @Maschell, or @FIX94, to code something new like that, though!

    There are per game hacks to unlock amiibo effects sometimes.
