At present, Super Smash Bros. Brawl is the most widely used game of Amiibo. Some Amiibos are designed based on the appearance of the character roles in the game, some are even printed with the logo of Super Smash Bros. Brawl. So here we take Super Smash Bros. Brawl as an example to explain the use of Amiibo in detail.
Generally, we only need to find the options of the menu, then put Amiibo on the left bottom of GamePad of Wii U to activate. When you put Amiibo on Gamepad, your character will enter into the game, and you can train and upgrade your character, challenge the Amiibo character of your friends, observe the battle between your character and other characters, cooperate with the character to fight, or fight with the character. Anyhow, the player couldn’t manipulate the character directly. The more amiibo the player uses, the higher the level will be. The character data in the game will be uploaded to Amiibo to store, so you may play your own character in your friend’s Wii U only with your Amiibo.
