Trying to keep track of all the different Amiibo Nintendo's releasing? Want to know what games they are compatible with and how each title uses them? We've got your back.

Nintendo's Amiibo NFC line is already a big hit with Nintendo fans. For that reason we here at Nintendo World Report will be continuously working on this living, breathing guide to help keep our readers informed about what Amiibo there are, what games they are compatible with, and how they will work in each game.

To easily use this guide, use the Table of Contents on the right hand side of the page. The first pages list each series of Amiibo and give a detailed rundown of each Amiibo in that line. After that, we go into detail about each Amiibo compatible game and have a description of how Amiibo are used in the title and a list of all the Amiibo compatible with that software.

At the time of writing this, we only know about Amiibo being made in the form of figures. However, Nintendo’s President, Satoru Iwata, has even discussed making smaller, more affordable Amiibo figures, as well as Amiibo technology in different form factors such as cards.

Amiibo support will be coming to the standard Nintendo 3DS family of systems in 2015 through the use of an NFC reader accessory while the New Nintendo 3DS systems have an NFC reader built right into the hardware.

Something important to keep in mind while playing with your Amiibo is that each Amiibo can only store data from one Read/Write game at a time. Not all Amiibo supported software needs to store data (most currently don't), but we will make sure to mention if a game requires the ability to store data in this guide.

Keep checking back to this guide frequently for updated information on Amiibo and Amiibo compatible software.

There should should be an honorable mention for Rumble Blast.  Know what be really cool is a Wave 1 Checklist as a PDF...  Wonder if I could do that in Gimp...

Truthfully the more I read about these figures coming out the less impressed I am with them. Maybe they'll be better than I'm thinking, but till it's proved other wise I just can't seemed to get excited for them all that much. At first I thought they'd work like the Skylander ones do but it looks like that's a no. I'll get one a see how it works, (but I'm not so sure how this is gonna work out for the time being).

Mario Party 10... When I was a kid I used to love the Mario Party series. I loved them so much that even though I had no one to play with, I would just play by myself for hours and hours and hours. I hope these figures let you do something interesting playing single-payer. I don't even have one friend who wants to play MP, now I have to find 4? Please, Nintendo. Not all of your fans have a billion people that want to play couch multiplayer with your games.

I'm with ya on that man. I don't have anyone who can play Mario Party with me anymore either. However if you wanna add me to your friend list on your Wii U, (or anyone else who would like to add me for that matter), my user name on my Wii U is KITT_10K. (You can never have too many friends.)

Why did they have to make Luigi look like Stalin?

Now that you say that, it seems like he's always looked like Stalin.

1. I'm not interested at all in Codename: STEAM why are they making this and not Advance Wars
2. I'm not interested at all I wish it was Advance Wars 5, but I'm curious about it
3. I don't think I'll ever get it, but I want to learn more
4. I might get this some day (hopefully I can find it on sale) please tell me more
5. Oh Majora's Mask pin if I pre-order..........I don't think I'm going to get there that's too bad the pin looks really cool
6. Fire Emblem Awakening Characters can be used if I buy their Amiibos, is it too late to get that Majora's Mask pin and where can I read more about this game.The 6 steps to becoming hooked on a new Nintendo IP. Dang there goes $66 (game plus 2 Amiibo)

I totally agree with you. Nintendo is going a little overboard with the local multiplayer. I like deep single player experiences.

Not always, he used to be Mario's twin brother. But that was swept under the rug just like other dirty secrets Nintendo would prefer we forget.
