IGN - As we inch closer to Smash Wii U’s launch on November 21, Nintendo gets closer to launching its toys-to-life figure line. Nintendo’s amiibo were unveiled at E3 2014. Players can register and train A.I.-driven amiibo figures to fight or unleash on their friends. Nintendo’s figures also unlock costumes in Mario Kart 8 and weapons in Hyrule Warriors. It will be a part of Nintendo's other upcoming 2015 games.
Nintendo sent us all 12 of its first wave of amiibo figures. We unboxed them for you and took a bunch of pictures. Please look forward to more amiibo coverage coming to IGN in the next few weeks
