KIRBY

De­vel­oper/pub­lisher Nin­tendo For­mat Switch Re­lease 2018

EDGE - - NINTENDO@E3 -

The lov­able/hate­ful pink blob has a thing for ab­sorb­ing pow­er­ful el­e­ments. His lat­est ti­tle, then, is Kirby all over — it’s sucked up all the best parts of his pre­vi­ous games and com­bined them. Helpers re­turn from Kirby Su­per Star: this time, a pink heart is thrown at el­i­gi­ble en­e­mies to trans­form them into AI bud­dies. The abil­ity-mix­ing fea­ture from The

Crys­tal Shards is back too, as ev­i­denced by a CPU Burn­ing Leo com­bin­ing his fire­power with Kirby’s sword. Even the se­cret-re­veal­ing broom from

Dream Land 3 makes an ap­pear­ance. And you can play with up to three friends: a se­quence where Kirby and four pals join into a rolling ring makes for new plat­form­ing me­chan­ics, as does the in­evitable but far more chal­leng­ing Whispy Woods boss. For a Kirby game so all-en­com­pass­ing, we’re start­ing to think Nin­tendo should keep the work­ing ti­tle.
