7: You can get items with amiibo!
If you have a compatible amiibo (sold separately), you can scan them by visiting Kagero the Merchant in Kamura Village. Up to three amiibo can be scanned per day, each one giving you a lottery ticket that can exchanged for random but helpful in-game items.
8: Get into the swing of the Wirebug
Using Wirebugs to ascend up mountains to leapfrog over monsters takes some getting used to, so it’s recommended to focus on one move at a time if you’re feeling overwhelmed by this versatile critter. A good one to start with is the Wirefall, an evasive manoeuvre that allows you to regain your footing by pressing the ZL and B Buttons together whenever you’re pushed or knocked over by a monster.
