Nintendo's amiibo figurines are like Skylander and Disney Infinity toys: they pair with the Wii U GamePad and, eventually, the 3DS via a wireless accessory, storing and sending data to put characters in your favorite Nintendo games. They'll be available this holiday, working with Super Smash Bros. first.

The amiibo will cover all Nintendo franchises: Pokemon, Super Mario, and...yes, even Wii Fit Trainers.

Super Smash Bros. on 3DS and Wii U will have slightly different feature sets, but how different isn't completely clear yet.

Nintendo had other games on the show floor, but sometimes it was hard to find them.

The Legend of Zelda has been announced for Wii U, but all you could really see of Link this year was in Smash Bros. or in Hyrule Warriors, both coming this fall.
