Prize Added to Cloud Nine Amiibo League

Hey guys, just a quick update on Cloud Nine Amiibo League. If there were any of you who were planning on skipping this tournament, you might want to reconsider – a prize has been announced for first place! The winner will receive a $25 Amazon Gift Card. I’m not sure if I’m going to be entering yet, but if I do, and if I win, the prize goes to second place.

Furthermore, the tournament has been postponed to April 27th, one week later. This should give you plenty of time to train. If you have already submitted your two entrants, you may resubmit them at any time. Please refrain from sending two S-tier amiibo. If you want a quick refresher on the rules and how to submit your amiibo, read this post. Best of luck – and until next time!

Farming Picture Pieces in Kirby Star Allies

Picture Pieces are the main collectibles in Kirby Star Allies. In the same vein as the StreetPass Mii Plaza’s Puzzle Swap, Star Allies’ Picture Pieces are used to complete celebration pictures. There are nine celebration pictures, and each one requires 80 Picture Pieces to complete. That’s a grand total of 720 Picture Pieces you will have to collect. Needless to say, if you’re a completionist, you will have to farm for them. Although Picture Pieces are earned in the game’s extra modes, there’s a particularly effective farming method that is available right from the beginning.

Tackling the Ultimate Choice’s “Soul Melter” Difficulty in Kirby Star Allies

Note: This guide contains spoilers. If you have not yet completed Kirby Star Allies, please avoid reading it. 

One of Kirby Star Allies’ notable flaws is its lack of difficulty. Though its story mode may be easy, its extra modes are not: The Ultimate Choice (previously known as The Arena) is a fast-paced boss rush with an adjustable intensity level. Its highest difficulty setting is “Soul Melter” – which is as challenging as the name implies. Your team of Star Allies will be faced with 13 powerful opponents – this guide aims to help you take down each and every one of them.

Amiibo Support in Kirby Star Allies

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 a nice bonus that can be used in a pinch.

Amiibo Support in Kirby: Planet Robobot

Kirby: Planet Robobot was released for the Nintendo 3DS on June 10th, 2016. An army of robotic invaders, the Haltmann Works Company, has invaded Planet Popstar and aims to overrun it with high-tech machinery. Kirby: Planet Robobot’s amiibo support is incredibly useful: Kirby will receive a unique copy ability depending on which amiibo character you scan.

All Amiibo Training Guides Now Available

In August 2015, I started the Amiibo Dojo, and I set myself the lofty goal of writing training guides on all 58 characters. It certainly wasn’t easy. At first, I had a lot of trouble with organization and keeping them all in the same format. But now, after countless hours of research, writing, and spell-checking, they’re done. And I couldn’t have done it alone: thanks a million to Trainer Blue, Arklaine, Supernova, LiteSpeed, LittleFang, DONkLE, ZachD08, and MegaVGmaster for helping to gather all of the information I needed.

Now that all 58 amiibo training guides are in pristine condition, your training truly begins. Because now you know that every piece of amiibo content here is 100% refined and polished. Therefore, I encourage you all to start (or continue) training in preparation for the upcoming Nintendo Switch version of Super Smash Bros. Thank you all for your support; I hope you continue to check back every day for new and updated content. Until next time!
