If you don’t know what in the world is an “Amiibo” then let me fill you in. Basically, Amiibos are toy accessories by Nintendo that you can buy to score additional points in the game or unlock new characters or features. They come in two forms essentially, one is a high-quality character figure while the other form is a portable playing card. To use them you simply tap them against the Nintendo Switch pro controller’s NFC reader and redeem the respective reward depending on the type of game. Moreover, a rumor has it that Diablo fans may be receiving Treasure Goblin and Demon Amiibos for Nintendo Switch pretty soon.
