How to Use amiibo With Kirby: Planet Robobot

by Prima Games Staff

Kirby: Planet Robobot is available now, and offers fans of the platforming series a new twist on the conventional action, as you can deal damage in a giant robot! The game comes with amiibo support, so let’s break down what each of the figures do in the game.

Kirby: Planet Robobot amiibo

There are four amiibo that will release alongside Kirby: Planet Robobot, including Kirby, King Dedede, Waddle Dee and Meta Knight. Since these are custom made for the game (and sold separately), they provide some of the best power-ups.

For instance, with King Dedede, you’ll gain access to his cap and hammer, then swing it at enemies. With Meta Knight, you’ll don his mask and wield his sword to attack foes, and with Waddle Dee, you’ll receive a blue headband and be able to use a blue-and-white parasol to your advantage, like hitting adversaries and floating from safe heights to the ground.

The Kirby amiibo, however, has the best ability in Planet Robobot, as you’ll gain immediate access to the U.F.O. With this, you can fly around the screen and shoot laser beams. Otherwise, you can also get this power-up by beating the game at 100 percent.

Smash Bros. amiibo in Kirby: Planet Robobot

You can use all of the Super Smash Bros. amiibo in Kirby: Planet Robobot, but they provide different abilities than their counterparts. You’ll still get the hammer with Dedede and the sword with Meta Knight, but not the cool caps. Kirby, meanwhile, will just have the same move set as his Smash Bros. character.

Here’s the breakdown of the other power-ups that will appear for use in the game if you scan these particular amiibo in Kirby: Planet Robobot. Mix ’em up, depending what you have!
