Three Upcoming Kirby Games Announced

All for Nintendo 3DS!


Thought Kirby’s 25th anniversary would be limited to the Japan-only concert? Not quite! As announced in today’s Nintendo Direct, three Kirby games are being released throughout 2017 for Nintendo 3DS; in fact, one is available right now!

And which one is that? That would be the one showcased above: Team Kirby Clash Deluxe, based off the Team Kirby Clash sub-game in last year’s Kirby: Planet Robobot. This time, a town hub not only hosts the game’s monster-bashing quests, but is home to purchasable armor and weapons. Naturally compatible with multiplayer play, this eShop-only game is available for download today.

Meanwhile, another Planet Robobot sub-game is getting a huge upgrade this summer: Kirby’s Blowout Blast, a new take on Kirby 3D Rumble. Featuring 25+ levels, Blowout Blast‘s stage design and boss fights render it a completely new game altogether. This eShop-only spin-off will be released this summer.

Finally, a brand new Kirby game was teased for release this holiday season. Details remain scarce, but it was confirmed to be a “multiplayer action title”. Will this be a simple co-op venture like Return to Dream Land, or a more ambitious undertaking in the vein of Amazing Mirror? We’ll keep you updated.

What do you think of all this new Kirby goodness? Let us know in the comments below!
