The highly anticipated Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is finally out on Nintendo Switch.
I must admit, even though I’d played the game a few times before release, I had no idea that the game included Amiibo support until I got to the part of the game. The Amiibo support is a lot simpler than other games, but it’s actually quite effective in terms of what you get.
HOW TO UNLOCK THE AMIIBO FUNCTIONALITY
When you complete Chapter 5 AKA Brother Where Art Thou in the first world, not only will you unlock Mario’s brother Luigi, you’ll also get the Amiibo R&D building in Peach’s Castle hub. This is located to the left of Peach and has an Amiibo scanner on top of it.
Once you get in, the game will tell you which Amiibo are compatible. If you can’t tell by the fairly obvious silhouettes, the compatible amigo are:
WHAT DOES EACH AMIIBO DO?
Each Amiibo unlocks a primary (for your main) and secondary weapon (for your Rabbbid counterpart) that are each more powerful than what you can get in the game at the time of unlocking the Amiibo functionality.
