Joker and Hero amiibo now available! (Europe & Australia)

Hey everybody, just a quick reminder that the Joker and Hero amiibo are now available for purchase in Europe, Australia, and Japan! Unfortunately, America has to wait another week, so if you can’t get a hold of Joker or Hero just yet, hang in there!

If you haven’t heard, we were able to crack the case on Joker and Hero almost a month early, so we had plenty of time to train them! We came prepared, because we’ve got full-length training guides available on Joker and Hero before their official release! You can find the Joker guide here and the Hero guide here. And be sure to join our Discord server if you’ve got any questions!

Training the strongest Hero amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Thanks to the power of mods, we were able to test out the Hero amiibo one year ago. And thanks to the power of NFC tags, we were able to test out the Hero amiibo again a few months back. Long story short, even though this guide is a few days early, we were able to figure out what makes Hero work. And – luckily – you’ll only be a little bit disappointed. Let’s get started.

Training the strongest Joker amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Joker, Hero, and Pichu have something in common: all three characters were accessed months before their official release date. We’ve had a couple of weeks in advance to train Joker, and we’re now ready to forward everything we’ve learned to our wonderful readers! Extravagant statements aside, Joker is much better than we thought. His AI actually understands how to use each and every one of its special moves… which is actually a great accomplishment by Figure Player-standards!

Training the strongest Pikachu amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Pikachu was kind of ridiculous in Super Smash Bros. 4. Back then, its Figure Player couldn’t make any kind of tournament progress unless it spammed its custom down special, Thunder Burst. In regard to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, we’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is that Pikachu can make better use of its full kit. The bad news is that Thunder Burst doesn’t exist anymore. Even so, Pikachu is much better off in Ultimate, and if you’re looking to train a good one, you’ve come to the right place!

Training the strongest Roy amiibo in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

If you’re looking for the Koopaling and searched for “Roy” instead of “Bowser Jr.” for some reason, you’ve got the wrong character! The Bowser Jr. / Koopaling amiibo training guide can be found here.

Super Smash Bros. 4 was a sad time for Roy. In fact, he didn’t even make the cut at first! He was brought back as DLC, but was often seen as an inferior semi-clone of Marth and Lucina. Plus, Roy’s reverse tipper mechanic was kind of dangerous; it forced him to get up close and personal with fighters you really don’t want to get up close and personal with. Things are looking up for Roy in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, though!
