It’s always satisfying to 100% complete a game: the knowledge that you’ve explored its every nook and cranny and that you’ve discovered its every secret is invaluable. Luckily for completionists, Kirby Star Allies makes 100% completion rather easy. There’s a very simple set of requirements that must be met.
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.
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.

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.
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.
