Kirby Star Allies Wave 3 Arriving November 30th

Three new characters and a mode!

The wait’s finally over: in what’s likely the final download wave for Kirby Star Allies, HAL Laboratory has gone the extra mile for November 30th’s free update. Not only are Magalor (Kirby’s Return to Dream Land), Taranza (Kirby: Triple Deluxe), and Susie (Kirby: Planet Robobot) available as playable Dream Friends, but a new mode by the name of “Heroes of Another Dimension” is provided so long as you’ve completed the main story mode. Check them out in the below trailer:

We’ll let the three newcomers speak for themselves, but Heroes of Another Dimension appears to be a reworked version of the original campaign, complete with revamped bosses — not the least in the Three Mage Sisters’ hankering for revenge against Kirby, going as far as ganging up on our heroes! —  and groovy new backgrounds. Like Guest Stars, you’re free to select familiar Dream Friends instead of Kirby, although it’s not immediately clear how this works; going by the trailer, it may be you switch between certain characters when entering assigned rooms playing to their strengths.

While this new mode’s certainly a surprise, the character roster lines up with the datamine leak…barring one addition. For those avoiding spoilers, we’ll leave it at the trailer possibly hinting an unlockable secret.
