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!
Last night, we made a major breakthrough — and long story short, the Exion team has crafted working files of the Joker and Hero amiibo that can be used on any Nintendo Switch console! Compatibility for Joker and Hero was added in Version 8.1.0, but their figurines don’t release until October 2nd. That means we’ve got access to Joker and Hero two months early, and it also means we’ll have credible, tested guides available for each character before they even release. You’ll be able to read best practices for training both Joker and Hero on the day they come out!
This follows a similar occurrence in 2019, in which Pichu was spoofed and access almost three months before release. We do have preliminary Joker and Hero training guides available, and plan on updating them once more before release. When we do, they’ll be brought to the front of the main page, so don’t worry about missing them! In the meantime, I would like to thank Supernova for greatly assisting in spoofing these characters and helping us access and analyze them months in advance.
