One of the great features included with the New Nintendo 3DS system is the built-in NFC amiibo reader. However, for those who haven’t upgraded yet or want to stick with their older model 3DS, Nintendo is releasing a peripheral that will allow older 3DS models to read amiibos. The device will release on September 25 in the US.
You can preorder the NFC reader right now on Target’s website for $20. If you need one for your 3DS, I’d advise getting one as soon as possible considering Nintendo’s history of low supply.
Now those without a New 3DS will be able to use any amiibo feature in any 3DS title that supports it.by
