IGN - The ins and outs of using amiibo in Smash Bros. Wii U

- amiibo learn how to fight based on your behaviors
- if you play matches without items, your amiibo won’t know what to do with them
- amiibo level faster when fighting other amiibo
- Link's amiibo is held firmly in place by a stiff yellow piece of plastic
- the Wii Fit trainer amiibo has a clear plastic cast surrounding her right foot
- when first used, amiibo have to be registered with your console
- this is done with the Games & More section, where you scan the figures in
- you can also set a specific profile on the system as the owner
- you have the option to give an amiibo a unique name.
- a quick video will play as your newly registered amiibo comes to life
- from here, you can adjust their equipment and custom moves
- you can also feed them leftover equipment to increase their stats and levels
- new data needs to be written to the figure before you can start using it in Smash
- amiibo can be used in 8-player Smash, Team Smash and more
- 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
- after you exit each mode, data (including rewards from the fight) must be written to the figure
- the system will realize if you accidentally tried to scan the wrong figure
- also an option to reset the amiibo and start the whole process over

UCraft - latest trailer, release date plans

Initially we were shooting for a holiday release however we have decided to effectively delay the game until the 2nd quarter of 2015. We know that this may come as a surprise to many of you but we feel this is the best course of action to ensure we deliver the best product possible to our beloved Wii U Community. We have devoted countless hours to the development of UCraft and we are very proud of our progress to date. We feel UCraft and the Wii U community deserve a great product not something rushed to the eshop to make a quick buck. We apologize from the bottom of our hearts Wii U Community but we are confident that this is the best move for UCraft.
