Kirby Star Allies was released for the Nintendo Switch on March 16th, 2018. When a mysterious hooded figure casts a spell onto an ominous crystal heart, it shatters and scatters across the galaxy – and it’s up to Kirby to investigate. Unfortunately, Kirby Star Allies’ amiibo support is nowhere near as in-depth as Planet Robobot‘s, but they’re still nice bonuses that can be used in a pinch.
Kirby series amiibo
There are four Kirby series amiibo, and each of them is compatible with the game. When scanned, these figurines will spawn two Picture Pieces and a Maxim Tomato. Their Super Smash Bros. series counterparts have the same effect. You can use these to “cheat” in The Ultimate Choice’s Soul Melter mode if you like!
Any non-Kirby series figure will spawn a cherry for you to eat. It restores a little bit of health in a pinch. Keep in mind that you can use up to seven amiibo per level: this means you can potentially use them to farm Picture Pieces.
If this guide seemed short, that’s because it is: sadly, Kirby Star Allies’ amiibo support isn’t on the same level as the previous title. Regardless, we will have to take what we’ve been given.
