YouTuber NintenDaan has been hard at work capturing footage from the intriguing Amiibo Tap which has just launched in Japan. Amiibo Tap allows you to scan in your amiibo figures onto the Wii U GamePad to unlock a variety of gameplay highlights from select Nintendo Entertainment System and Super NES games. You can check out an overview above and Metroid gameplay and Kirby Super Star gameplay, below. We found out yesterday that the application will be launching in Europe on April 30th.
You may remember the controversy that happened a few weeks back when Digital Foundry analysed what it claimed to be recent code of Project CARS when it turned out the build was actually a few months old.

The footage is taken from the PlayStation 4 version of the game and as you can see it looks rather stunning.
