Music from Kid Icarus

Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/Wii U features a total of 15 Kid Icarus music tracks between both versions of the game, four of which were carried over from Brawl. Most of the new songs were taken directly from Kid Icarus: Uprising, while "In the Space-Pirate Ship," "Wrath of the Reset Bomb," "Lightning Chariot Base," and "Destroyed Skyworld" were remixed.

These songs appear as background music for the Palutena's Temple, Skyworld, and Reset Bomb Forest stages, as well as in Smash Run. They can also be listened to by selecting them on the Sound Test section of the main menu.

amiibo are interactive figurines that were manufactured for compatibility with the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. By placing the amiibo on the lower left corner of the GamePad, scanning the amiibo to the 3DS with an adapter, or placing the amiibo on the lower screen on a New Nintendo 3DS, the player can receive and store data using the figurine. In Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/Wii U, the character that the figurine represents can be used in-game as a customizable and trainable CPU.
