IGN has shared new footage and details about the usage of amiibo in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. View a new video from the site above, and a summary of information below.

– amiibo learn all types of moves and strategies based off of how you play
– If you play matches without items, your amiibo won’t know what to do with them
– amiibo level faster when fighting other amiibo
– amiibo models have changed since E3
– Link is held firmly in place by a stiff yellow piece of plastic
– Wii Fit trainer has a clear plastic cast surrounding her right foot to keep her from being ripped off it’s base
– Other amiibo such as Kirby, Yoshi, and Donkey Kong are said to be durable
– New amiibo must first be registered on your console
– Scan them in Games & More, set a specific profile on the system as owner, give the amiibo a unique name
– After that, watch a quick video as your newly registered amiibo comes to life
– Can then adjust equipment, custom moves, feed them leftover equipment to increase their stats and levels
– The new data needs to be written to the figure before you can start using it in Smash
– Use amiibo in different Smash Bros Wii U modes like 8-player Smash battles to Team Smash
– Stats and rewards earned are written to each figure whenever you quit out of a mode
– If a figure loses contact with the touch sensor while saving amiibo data, the system will ask to recover the data and re-write it to the toy
– Writing data after quitting a mode is simple
– The game can recognize if you’ve accidentally tried to scan the wrong figure
– There’s even an option to reset the amiibo and start the whole process over
