Amiibo Support in Kirby: Planet Robobot

Kirby: Planet Robobot was released for the Nintendo 3DS on June 10th, 2016. An army of robotic invaders, the Haltmann Works Company, has invaded Planet Popstar and aims to overrun it with high-tech machinery. Kirby: Planet Robobot’s amiibo support is incredibly useful: Kirby will receive a unique copy ability depending on which amiibo character you scan.

Kirby Series amiibo

There are four Kirby series amiibo that are compatible with Kirby: Planet Robobot. From left to right, the characters are: Kirby, King Dedede, Meta Knight, and Waddle Dee. These figurines offer exclusive rewards that their Super Smash Bros. counterparts do not. In addition to replenishing your health with a Maxim Tomato (which allows you to “cheat” in The Arena), these amiibo also reward you with a custom ability based off on the character you scanned.

Might sound sort of underwhelming, but worry not. The Kirby series Kirby amiibo has a neat effect: it allows you to use the hidden U.F.O. ability that can’t be found anywhere else. U.F.O. is a powerful form Kirby can use to levitate infinitely and shoot lasers.

Other amiibo

Amiibo support in Kirby: Planet Robobot isn’t limited to Kirby series amiibo – in fact, you can use any amiibo and you will still receive a copy ability based on the character. The abilities between characters are universal: for example, a Super Mario series Mario amiibo and a Super Smash Bros. series Mario amiibo both yield the Fire ability.

Overall, Kirby: Planet Robobot’s amiibo support is top-notch. It’s a shame they didn’t implement this system into Kirby Star Allies. That would’ve been interesting. Either way, the fact that Robobot’s developers were able to include unique support for over 50 different figurines is certainly impressive.
