Appears in a few days Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury and like most Nintendo Switch games, the game is of course compatible with the myriad of amiibo that are available. At least there are two brand new amiibo for the game: Cat Peach and Cat Mario *.
If you scan the cat peach amiibo, you will receive a random power-up. If you scan the cat-Mario-amiibo, you will receive an invulnerability bell. That was already known. Thanks to Destructoid, we now also know what to do with the many other amiibo in your collection.
It depends on whether you play Super Mario 3D World or the content from the new mode Bowser’s Fury. In the normal game, when you scan all amiibo, you just get random, useful items. From the mushroom to the 1-UP. If you play the new content from “Bowser’s Fury”, some amiibo have special functions.
The Bowser amiibo (there are several) have an effect in Bowser’s Fury mode that should actually be avoided. Finally, the official website teaches us:
If the weather suddenly changes from sunny to stormy, it’s time to be careful because Anger-Bowser is almost there! As soon as he rises out of the angry sun, it rains meteorites from the sky and he shoots you with beams of fire. So get yourself to safety!
If you scan Bowser, then you activate anger Bowser immediately. What sounds dangerous can also be useful. Because anger bowser can destroy some barriers and hurdles that you would otherwise not get broken. Bowser Jr.’s amiibo figure also has an extraordinary function. It causes a severe explosion. However, you cannot use it all the time, there is a cooldown phase.
Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury is coming to Nintendo Switch on February 12, 2021. At several retailers you can currently dust off various pre-order bonuses or free gifts:
