    I found a thread on a certain forum where someone uploaded .bin files, supposedly ripped from Amiibo figures, for Smash Bros. He had no idea how to use them, though. I can't find the Amiibos I want, and they're expensive online. So, any way to add them without?

    By those things that can emulate them, well legally if you backup your own...

    So basically I can use my phone to write the bin file to an NFC tag? Sounds simple enough.

    Make sure to weigh out how many you want to do. If over a certain amount get an amiiqo since you can't erase the nfc tags

    Never heard of this before but wouldnt it be cheaper to just get one of those rewritable nfc keychain thingies or do you need special nfc tags to work as an amiibo

    you need NFC215 tags
    and once you write to the Tag it becomes locked because a certain amount of bytes in the amiibo are locked


    Or sell em to your friends and make your money back :D

    Amiiqo's now called the N2. Supports up to 200 characters. WOW. I honestly don't need that many. And the weird thing is, some of the stores carry a USB R/W device, or an "Elite" version for $80 or more. Seems excessive.

    No. You CAN use your phone to WRITE NFC tags, though. From what I've read, you have to get NFC215 tags, and write the bin you want to the tags using an NFC-enabled phone.

    Can't you read? It was already told that's not possible.
