NFC API Overview


The NFC library is a low-level library for the Wii U GamePad that provides features that are not dependent on the tag type. In general, when using NFC features, use a higher-level library that corresponds to the tag type (the NTAG library). Use the functions of this library only when using features that do not depend on tags.


The NFC library provides features for detecting tags supported by the Wii U GamePad. Specifically, tags can be detected by using the NFCGetTagInfo function. Other features are currently either not public or not supported. If you need a particular feature, contact your local Nintendo developer support group.
