Playing as Kirby in “Guest Star ???? Star Allies Go!” Mode

Note: The glitch works in Version 2.0.0 of the game and earlier. If it is patched out in a future update, this post will be updated.

Kirby Star Allies’ “Guest Star ???? Star Allies Go!” mode is a unique (and strangely-named) sub-game that sees players taking on the role of a helper instead of Kirby. This means that Kirby himself is not playable in any capacity. However, at the time of writing, it actually is possible to play as Kirby through a glitch. While the bug itself is easy enough to perform, there are a few oddities that result from it that you should know about.

Unlockables in Super Smash Bros. Melee

Although Super Smash Bros. Melee is over ten years old, its community is very much alive. Its competitive metagame really picked up after the game was included in EVO 2013’s tournament lineup. Simply put, Melee is still relevant even to this day. If you decide that you want to get in on the action, or even if you just want to play it for fun, there are a number of unlockables within the game that you can obtain.

Unlockables in Super Smash Bros. (Nintendo 64)

The original Super Smash Bros. may be over fifteen years old, but it’s still well worth your time. In addition to being just plain fun, it’s also nice to see where the series began and how far it has progressed. If you decide to give it a go, there are a number of unlockables that you can obtain.

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.
