|amiibo Tap: Nintendo's Greatest Bits|
Also known as: amiibo Touch & Play: Nintendo Classics Highlights (EU)
amiibo Tap: Nintendo's Greatest Bits is a downloadable Wii U app released in 2015 to market both amiibo and the Virtual Console. By tapping an amiibo to the GamePad, you could unlock a select game from the NES or SNES library. A nice idea, until you realize these normally-priced figures unlock demos of games you could get for about half the price off the eShop.
Only with Nintendo.
Early Title Screen
Get this title screen to work
A completely different title screen under the name TitleMenu.szs is still present in the app's files. The final title screen is held in TitleScreen.szs.
A bit of placeholder text exists in the final title screen's layout for a text box that is never used.
This hints that at one point Nintendo actually planned to update amiibo Tap, but never did so.
Internal Project Name
amiibo Tap is named Family internally. This most likely has to do with the fact the selection of games range from the Family Computer and the Super Family Computer.
