Developer/publisher Nintendo Format Switch Release 2018
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.
