    I knew bookmarking this thread was a good idea. I don't even have a Wii U yet, but now I know the amiibos won't be a barrier of entry for me anymore.

    I have a 3DS, but it doesn't have amiibo support. Only the N3DS does currently, the original one will need an as of yet unreleased peripheral to support them.

    There already was a post like this previously, and there was this guy that was making really huge progress (but nintento took him down before he even started) I dont recall his name.

    With this all the physical amiibo DLC will be completely accessible and no more need to bother with them. :)

    Nintendo made an NFC amiibo reader (could've read Skylanders and Infinity toys too) so not only would the customers need to buy the amiibos for the extra content but also this. It's understandable the O3DS isn't capable.

    Did they already make the amiibo reader for the O3DS? As far as I knew they use different tech than skylanders and needs it's own thing

    I am not doing a jig on a dance pad yet. We all know about the WiiKey U.

    If it all works out I would only need to sell 5-6 Amiibos to to pay for this thing. Would love to be a fly on the wall at the scalpers lair when this thing ships. :)

    I don't think scalpers will take too much of a hit with this actually. There are some people who want the short print figures for the figures themselves, not necessarily the data from them.

    Nintendo's restocked the "rare" amiibos so the scalpers can no longer charge ridiculous amounts of money.

    I believe you are seriously underestimating scalpers and the ignorant masses good sir. Even if they were restocked, a scalper could still say it's rare, and an unknowing grandmother would buy a dozen "danky kang" amiibos.

    Nintendo Store UK has them in stock and the whole amiibo craze has died out, at least in Europe. It was bound to happen as it was a ticking time bomb anyway.

    The wii key U is a myth. They havent provided any further details then just a logo in a looong time.

    Any word of a amiibo database yet?

    Also, does anyone know what the amiiqo app is called?

    The database and its app are coming soon. It can be seen what they'll be like in the trailer they made.

    It looks very promising! :)
