Amiibo (stylized as amiibo) is a series of figurines designed to interact with the Wii U, and with use of a peripheral, the 3DS. The figures represent characters from different Nintendo franchises. The amiibo figurines can be placed on the Wii U gamepad, a Nintendo DS peripheral, or the touch screen of a new Nintendo 3DS which allows them to store and transmit data contained in the figures between a variety of games. The amiibo figures can also receive data from the gamepad. The amiibo figures were inspired by the Trophies of the Super Smash Bros. series. [1] The figurines are being sold at an MSRP of $12.99.[2]

Samus had her figure released on the same day as the Wii U game. Zero Suit Samus's amiibo was released in North America in September 2015.[3]

The amiibo figurines have been announced in conjunction with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, and as such are based on the character models in that game. Using the amiibos, the player can use a unique fighter which can fight alongside the player in-game, and has a customisable move set. The character data can then be sent back to the amiibo and retain its enhancements. The game will feature a level system for the characters, with a maximum character level of 50. [4] The Samus amiibo figure can be used in Mario Kart 8, One Piece: Super Grand Battle! X, Ace Combat 3D Cross Rumble +, amiibo Tap: Nintendo's Greatest Bits and Yoshi's Woolly World to unlock Metroid-relevant features.

Metroid Prime: Federation Force allows the usage of amiibo. Samus and Zero Suit Samus can be scanned in the Campaign and Blast Ball to unlock Paint Jobs based on the Varia Suit and Zero Suit for the Mechs that the Federation Marines use, as well as give extra AUX ammo. Other characters' amiibo can also be used in either mode to unlock skins for the Mech suits relevant to that character.

About amiibo (Federation Force manual)Edit

"You can unlock specialized paint jobs by selecting the amiibo option within the paint-job menu and then using a compatible amiibo."


  • At least one figure erroneously gave Samus an Arm Cannon on both arms.[5] Similar aesthetic defects have been observed in amiibo figures of other characters.[6][7]
