Future Plans for Cloud Nine

Hey guys, Cloud here. It’s been around a month since we’ve had any new content here at Cloud Nine. If you’ve been following my work for a while, you may remember that, at around this time last year, the Amiibo Dojo (which was the site’s name) went dead and never really came back. That’s not the plan for Cloud Nine – there’s going to be a lot of new content and changes coming up soon. Here are a few of them.

First, I’m going to be mixing up the visuals a bit. The site’s background will stay mostly the same, but the header image is going to be changed significantly. We’re losing the Rockruff, for one. I’m also going to be redoing several featured images for posts, as well as reorganizing the navigation bar.

In terms of new content, there’s always amiibo guides. We have a few of those in the works. However, effective immediately, we’re going to be trashing the casual guides. To my surprise, people seem to rather train competitive amiibo, so competitive guides will be the only ones available from now on. If Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch is announced during tomorrow’s Nintendo Direct (which is unlikely, but still a vague possibility), we’ll have updated training guides out in no time.

We’re also going to be branching out into different games. More info on that later. For now, thanks for your continued support as always!
