Nintendo has released a new trailer in North America for Kirby Battle Royale.

First reported by Nintendo Everything, this new Kirby Battle Royale  gives players a closer, if only somewhat, look at the upcoming Kirby brawler. The game seems to borrow elements from Team Kirby Clash and Team Kirby Clash Deluxe, although several new game modes (some of which don’t seem to focus on combat) are present within the trailer. The trailer also makes mention of the ability for players to play against others online, and hints at the potential to customize your own Kirby with unique and powerful abilities.

Kirby Battle Royale will be hitting shelves on January 19 for the 3DS. Are you looking forward to this Kirby-vs-Kirby battle royale? Let us know in the comments below!


Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
