Nintendo of Europe has announced the NFC Reader/Writer for 2DS and 3DS systems will be released in October. North Americans can pick it up in September.


The NFC Reader/Writer, announced in 2014, allows amiibo figures to work with the 2DS and 3DS family of systems.

It uses two AA batteries and features wireless connectivity.

According to Best Buy, the NFC Reader/Writer will arrive in North America on September 25 and will run you $19.99.

We’re checking on a price for Europe and the UK now, but expect it to be the price equivalent announced of North America.

The NFC Reader/Writer will release in Europe on October 2.
