Here’s An Overload Of Amiibo Tap Footage

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.


  1. Does anyone honestly see the appeal of this game? Is this the real use of amiibo? Buying $12 figures to play 30 seconds of 20+ years old games?


    1. That’s what I’ve been saying. Its like when they gave us those 3 minute runs of old games on Super Smash Bros. Brawl. I literally played one, found out it wasn’t the full game, then proceeded to turn off my Wii out of confusion.

      I like some of the Amiibo and all, but this whole thing is seriously KARP.


      1. I remember those Masterpieces from Brawl… I remember playing through Super Metroid’s demo to see how far I could get, but could only just barely do the first beginning part of the game because of that looooooong intro xD


      2. See ! I didn’t even try that one. I would have been watching that intro, then noticing the timer and then Flip Tables Son. : ).


  2. You know they didn’t have to do this at all.

    Not everyone has play these classics.

    Sony and xbox don’t do anything like this.


  3. Its just unnecessary. Of coarse people love wonderful old games, but more likely love the ones that let get passed the first level before prompting you to play again some other time.

    Its time to just give instead of take. Those games are old as the hills and its just bad business to give away a slice of the sample.

  4. The appeal of this is just to give you another reason besides Smash FP’s and “for display only” to use an amiibo at all. I’ve really only used my Link amiibo to unlock the Spinner in HW, but that’s pretty much it besides fighting against him once or twice in Smash.
