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

To do:
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.

Just some simple dots that never made it to the final title screen.

Planned Updates

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.

Unused Games

Within the VcRomDataUs.szs file contains the ROMs for Super Mario All-Stars and Mario Bros. but for reasons unknown was never included in the game (however it could have be intended for the planned update). They don't have images contained in TitleScreen.szs, however they contain the levels that the demo timer would start.

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.
