Control 8 characters at once with this Smash Bros. Wii U glitch

Posted on December 30, 2015 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U

Reddit user Gluetendo has stumbled upon an interesting glitch in Smash Bros. Wii U. By taking advantage of it, it’s possible to control eight characters at once.

Here are the full steps, as described by Gluetendo:

  • Have 8 amiibo.
  • Use a controller that can “desync” (a GameCube controller preferably).
  • Go to the 8-Player Smash mode.
  • Just move your joystick until the “Player #” or port space pops up.
  • Click the name part of your port until it says “None”.
  • Remove your controller from the port or desync it.
  • Scan your amiibo.
  • Plug everything back in.
  • Move your joystick again and now you will be the Player in the next available space after your scanned amiibo. Nothing out of the ordinary, but trust me, it’s working.
  • Repeat Steps 5-9 until all the Player spaces are filled with the 8 amiibo.
  • Go to the Settings (where Time or Stock and Item rules are). Then simply exit.
  • Enjoy controlling 8 characters simultaneously

If you’d like to see the glitch working, give the video below a look.

    Wait, so the guy needed eight different Ganondorf amiibo to do this?

    So I guess I would have to have 8 Villager amiibos.
    Aww man, I only have 2.
