News: The pink puffball returns.
With Kirby's GameCube adventure MIA at this year's E3, Nintendo did the next best thing and trotted out a new DS adventure for the marshmallowy hero.
Here's what we know:
Format: Nintendo DS
Launch Date: TBA
ESRB: RP (Rating Pending)
Game Type: Action
Players: 1-4 via Multi-Card or DS Download Play over DS Local Area Network
Kirby's back and ready for a bellyful of adventure.
When someone steals some strawberry shortcake, the pink powerhouse sets out after them, learning new skills.
Players can expect all the floating, jumping and battling of a classic Kirby game, but this time, Kirby's copy abilities have been massively boosted. Not only can players mix and match copy abilities by using the stylus to drag them together inside Kirby's copy center (located on the touch screen), but the powers themselves now have the ability to affect the environment, as well as foes. Burn trees and grasses with the Fire ability or freeze water with the Ice ability.
In sub-game mode, this game also features multiplayer fun for up to four players, using either Multi-Card or DS Download Play over DS Local Area Network.
