armiibo (Japanese: アミーボ戦士Amībo Senshi/Amiibo Warriors) is a downloadable 3D combat title released for the Wii U. The game uses amiibo figures to customize the user's Mii character.
A Mii's clothing and weaponry can be customized by the amiibos that have been scanned. An amiibo's stored data is, like with most titles, not overwritten when scanned. Additionally, amiibos of different series may sometimes grant different outfits or weapons.
The game is a three-dimensional action game with both hand-to-hand combat and shooter elements. Similar to Splatoon, a Mii can hold a standard weapon, a secondary weapon, and a specialty weapon to be used for mass destruction.
Killing - or "Stopping" - a Mii earns the player a point. After gaining a certain amount of points, the user is given their specialty weapon, which can be used only a handful of times before being taken away once more. Half of the points earned are taken away upon being killed/"stopped".
The game is heavily based upon online multiplayer, though up to six players can also play locally - four player split-screen with two gamepads. Compatible controllers are the gamepad, as previously stated, Wii Remote held sideways, Wii Remote and Nunchuk, Wii U Pro Controller, Wii Classic Controller and, as of an update released allowing the Super Mario series amiibos to be used, the GameCube controller.
The game, due to being sponsored by Nintendo, features 20 areas based off of Nintendo properties, as well as three basic stages. These stages can be used for multiple game modes, though may be adjusted to work for some objective-based ones.
Upon launch, only amiibos of the Super Smash Bros. line were capable of being used. However more amiibos have been supported over time via patches.
