amiibo Patch Report: Ver. 11.0.0

Tonight’s update to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate added the new fighters Pyra and Mythra to the game’s impressive lineup of characters.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Bowser amiibo Guide (Competitive)

For as long as amiibo training has existed, Bowser has been at the very top of its competitive metagames. The King of Koopas made waves throughout the entirety of Super Smash Bros. 4’s metagame, and unfortunately, he was even further buffed in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Though he does lose to Incineroar, he beats just about every other fighter. Bowser is so strong, in fact, that’s he banned from most competitive tournaments. You might have a tough time finding a tournament to enter that allows Bowser, but in case you do, we’ve got a great training strategy you can use to make yours really strong! If you want to learn more about Bowser’s strengths, you can check out his wiki page.
