Many new Nintendo games are integrating amiibo in some way or another, and Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam is no different. However, the 3DS title seems to be the first game to give you a bonus for having two amiibo of the same character.
Scanning one amiibo in Paper Jam grants players with cards that provide benefits in battle, while scanning two figures of the same character will result in what are called “Sparkle Cards.” These special cards give players 4 star power in addition to the card’s base effect. For instance, you can scan two Mario Party 10 Princess Peach figures, or one Super Smash Bros. Princess Peach figure and one Mario Party 10 Princess Peach figure, and receive a Sparkle Card as a reward.
This obviously gives gamers incentive to double up on their amiibo character figures, which leaves some angry as most amiibo of the same character share functionality between games. What do you think about the unique feature?
