Can I use amiibo with Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS?

A software update is now available that enables amiibo features in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS when playing on New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL systems. Find out more in our Support section.

If you wish to use amiibo on your Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL or Nintendo 2DS, you will need the additional NFC Reader/Writer accessory (sold separately).
