Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: Gameplay Mechanics & Effects on Amiibo Training

It’s been a busy E3 for Nintendo: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was officially announced for Nintendo Switch, and it’s shaping up to be the largest, most polished entry yet. And we’re thanking our lucky stars that amiibo training is back and better than ever. Ultimate’s new mechanics and moveset updates will have several effects on the metagame: including two particular characters who we believe will be quickbanned. Let’s get started.

Super Smash Bros. Inkling, Ridley, and Daisy amiibo Announced

During Nintendo’s Treehouse broadcast, three new Super Smash Bros. series amiibo were confirmed: Inkling and Ridley, which were shown directly, and Daisy, who was verbally confirmed. This means that Inkling, Ridley, and Daisy will all enter the amiibo metagame as new contenders. And you can be sure that Cloud Nine will have training guides on each of them!

Amiibo Training Returns for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for Nintendo Switch was revealed today, and hence its name, it’s the biggest entry in series history. Every Super Smash Bros. character returns: Solid Snake, Young Link, Wolf, Pichu, and the Ice Climbers are all making playable appearances.

Here’s some even better news. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will feature amiibo training, and we can use our data from Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS. This means that our existing set of training guides is still relevant for those of you who want to prepare for Ultimate’s launch on December 7th. I’d recommend playing exclusively on Battlefield for the time being, seeing as the layout of Ω-form stages has been altered to include platforms.

Cloud Nine will be releasing an all-new set of amiibo training guides tailored specifically to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. As mentioned earlier, our existing training guides will help serve as a basis for the new games. However, potential changes in character movesets (and the fact that equipment and custom moves may or may not exist) warrant a new set. Thanks a million for all your support, and we hope you look forward to the new amiibo metagame!
