Amiibo figures can only hold info for one game at a time

Nintendo has confirmed that its Amiibo toys-to-life figures are only able to store information for one game at a time.

CVG reports that the platform holder advises that "if you wish to use the data from other read/write compatible software, please erase the data in the ‘Amiibo settings’ section of the Wii U settings menu".

Amiibos with data already stored on them can still be used to unlock content in other games, however. They just won’t be able to save any information associated with it on their NFC chips.

The news is a bit of a blow to the figures’ functionality, with Nintendo touting the fact that each can be used across multiple titles as a big selling point of the upcoming range.

The platform holder yesterday announced its third and fourth wave of Amiibos, including the likes of Sonic, Bowser and Mega Man.
