Yoshi’s Crafted World Amiibo guide | Which figures can be used and how does it work?


Yoshi’s Crafted World has finally arrived! So it is about time to dust off your old amiibo collection and start seeing which of those glorious figures can work in-game.

But what exactly do they do? And which ones can you use? Well, let us break it down for you.

In Yoshi’s Crafted World, you can tap amiibo onto the controller or the Switch to obtain costumes for Yoshi to wear. These costumes can be equipped to give Yoshi armor that can negate damage a certain amount of times throughout a level.

To use your amiibo figure, you first need to load up in the main menu from the overworld by pressing the “+” button. You can then scroll down to the amiibo option and follow the in-game instructions to access the content.

This usually revolves around pressing the A button a few times until the game asks you to place an amiibo figure either on the Switch Joy-con or your Pro Controller. Once you press the amiibo on the designated spot, a notification should appear on screen showing you what you have unlocked.

The different character amiibo that can be used with Crafted World includes any Mario, Peach, Yoshi, Luigi, Bowser, Poochy, and Koopa Troopa amiibo. These amiibo will spawn in a unique costume for Yoshi to wear during his quest.

You can also tap any other amiibo onto the Switch or Pro Controller to unlock a special Amiibo Box costume for Yoshi to wear as well. There is only one variant of this box and tapping a different amiibo won’t unlock you anything else once it has been added to the game.
