The upcoming wave of amiibo are set to bring us two more Kirby characters in the coming months to join the already available Kirby. With Kirby and the Rainbow Curse being Nintendo’s next major release for the Wii U that is set to arrive in February, it makes sense that they would start to push the game. As a result, Nintendo has given us a bit of a Christmas present with a brand new trailer for Kirby and the Rainbow Curse that also reveals just how three specific amiibo will be integrated with the game.
The nearly five minute long trailer shows off the various abilities of Kirby that are found in this game, as well as plenty of locations that we can expect to see in the game. However the major information came at the very end with the information that the Kirby, Meta Knight, and King Dedede amiibo would be compatible with the game.
Kirby’s amiibo unlocks Star Dash for use at anytime, which looks like it could be similar to the overpowered Hypernova in this year’s Kirby Triple Deluxe. The Meta Knight amiibo provides Kirby with Meta Knight’s mask, while also increasing your attack power. Lastly, the King Dedede amiibo will give Kirby his hat, while also increasing Kirby’s overall health.
Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is certainly looking like another fantastic Wii U game, which I know I can’t wait to play. The only disappointment is that Meta Knight is a retailer exclusive and could be quite hard to find. Make sure to check out the trailer for yourself below to see the game itself and the amiibo usage in action.
