Fire Emblem Echoes amiibo Functionality Revealed

Those looking forward to the next Fire Emblem game coming out in just a little over two months might also want to check out what the latest amiibo for the series has to offer. The main feature of these amiibo is that either one will unlock a special dungeon for players to explore, gather items and gain some more experience fighting enemies.

The Alm and Celica amiibo will also let players save those character’s stats to the amiibo, allowing them to be summoned later as phantom soldiers in any battle. They also appear to be able to function with the Mila’s Gear feature to some degree, which allows players a limited amount of times they can rewind moves in battle.

In addition to this it appears as though other amiibo will also be able to summon phantom soldiers to battle, possibly meaning we won’t see past Fire Emblem characters return through their amiibo as recruits this time around.

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia launches on May 19 for 3DS.
