Your amiibo becomes a game piece in the all-new amiibo Party mode! At least one amiibo is required in order to access this mode.
Game boards vary based on the amiibo used. On the Mario board, you might encounter an event where you use a Mushroom to suddenly grow or collect coins while defeating your rivals. On the Luigi board, you may have to suck up your rivals' stars and coins using the Poltergust.
Save items to your amiibo, then strategically choose one item to bring along each game. It might just be the key to victory.
Use each compatible amiibo once per day to get a bonus, such as a different base for your game piece!
