While Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle is ultimately a collaboration between Nintendo and Ubisoft, it’s still a Nintendo game at heart, which means it comes with full support for the company’s line of amiibo figures.
Below, we’ll show you how you can utilize amiibo in Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, as well as which amiibo the game supports.
Unlocking Amiibo Functionality
In order to unlock the ability to use amiibo, you’ll first have to beat all the stages of Kingdom Battle’s first world, Ancient Gardens. Once you’ve done this, head back to Peach’s Castle and you’ll find the amiibo R&D building waiting for you. By heading into this building, you can scan data from the amiibo figures you have and unlock unique perks in Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle for doing so.
Compatible Amiibo Figures
There are four different amiibo that are compatible with Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, and it probably won’t be too surprising to hear that they all hail from the Mario series. The four amiibo that can be used in the game are as follows:
For each amiibo, you’ll unlock a pair of unique weapons for the corresponding character in-game; one that can be used by the standard character and another that can be used by their Rabbid counterpart. These amiibo-exclusive weapons aren’t required in order to beat the game, but they can certainly help if you find yourself in a tough spot. At the very least, they give your arsenal a little added variety, and who doesn’t want that?
