The long-awaited standalone near-field communication reader/writer accessory for Nintendo 3DS is now available for pre-order on Amazon. This device will open up the world of Amiibo to any owners of the Nintendo 3DS, 3DS XL, and 2DS — a world that was previously only available to owners of the Wii U and New Nintendo 3DS.
The NFC adapter will be released in conjunction with Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer on September 25 in North America, and October 2 in Europe. Pre-order it on Amazon for $19.99. For a list of Amiibo compatible games, visit Nintendo’s Amiibo compatibility chart.
