WATCH: Unboxing of the New Kirby Amiibos and How They Function in Super Smash Bros.
A while ago, we saw how more than 30 amiibos function in Kirby Planet Robobot. Thanks to GameXplain, we now know that third-party amiibos such as Shovel Knight, Ryu and Sonic for example, are considered as unregistered in the game’s database and will randomly unlock a copy ability instead. Only those that are directly produced by Nintendo are guaranteed to produce a specific copy ability based on that amiibo’s prominent feature. Missing from their walk-through, however, are the latest Kirby amiibos which we are quite familiar already as it is prominently featured in Nintendo’s website dedicated to the pink puffball.
The guys over at MyGamingBoulevard have a different question in mind: how will the latest Kirby amiibos function in other amiibo supported games, in this case, Super Smash Bros? They came up with this unboxing video and found the answer themselves. Watch this.
Straight out of the box, the latest amiibos of Kirby, King Dedede, Meta Knight, and Waddle Dee (the Japanese versions) are quite different from their previous ones, with a more comic and Dreamland feel-for the latter. Furthermore, as we can see, the new Kirby line of amiibos is compatible, and functions accordingly with Super Smash Bros for the Wii U. It unlocks their Smash Bros counterpart, similar to that of the previous amiibos, though we were somehow hoping that new content or iteration of the Kirby characters will be unlocked or revealed.
The latest Kirby themed amiibos are now available in Japan, with a release date in the US scheduled on June 10. Kirby Planet Robobot for the3DS will also hit US stores also on the said date.
