Amiibo Support for Kirby and the Rainbow Curse Detailed

Get a "helping hand" from some of your Amiibo in Kirby's 2015 adventure.

The Amiibo for Kirby, King Dedede, and Meta Knight will give you a "helping hand" in Kirby and the Rainbow Curse.

The Kirby Amiibo will let you star dash at any time, the Dedede one lets you wear the King's hat and get more health, and the Meta Knight one puts his mask on you and improves your attack.

Kirby's Amiibo is available now, while King Dedede and Meta Knight are coming out alongside the third wave in February. In North America, Meta Knight is a Best Buy exclusive.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse will be priced the same as Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker in Japan. The below trailer also confirms that the game will have 28 story levels and 40 challenge ones.

So the amiibos will help you break the game? I guess it won't matter since no one is going to be able to find the Dedede or Meta Knight amiibos anyway.


I do like the Captain Toad price point.

What you call "break the game" I call helpful to my 3 and 5 year olds. People like you and I won't use them just like we didn't use the white tanooki leaves on Mario 3D Land that appeared when you struggled with a level

So, it's like a super guide that you pay $15 for?

Kirby games already had certain powerups in them that allowed you to break the game at several points anyway.

So, it's like a regular Kirby game, you just have to by it in $15 increments? :D

Once again it's not meant for you and me. It's meant for my 3 year old

I like these small little additions, the Amiibo doesn't break the game, it just adds a little flavour. I would expect to see these little touches in all first party Nintendo games from now, until Amiibo are no longer sold. Great idea for kids. I'm fine with this.

I'm a little disappointed they didn't unlock Dedede and Meta Knight as playable characters as well.

Much like Kirby games in general.  ;)

If its like the first game they'll be in game unlockables.
