Nintendo took the stage at E3 to show off a new Kirby game coming to the Nintendo Switch in 2018.
While the Nintendo conference was short and sweet, they did give some screen time to give us a glimpse at a new Kirby game coming to Switch in 2018.
As far as we know the game is just called ‘Kirby’ and looks to be a cute and colorful side-scroller with Metroid type vertical levels as well.
Like in most games, Kirby sucks up his enemies and gains their strength or, at least gains their fashion sense. We see him don a link-style cap after devouring one enemy as well as a number of different outfits throughout the game play. From what Nintendo showed, it also looked like they were encouraging co-op play with up to 4 friends.
Kirby holds a special place in my heart as Kirby’s Dreamland was the first game I beat from start to finish. It was a big gaming moment in my life and I’m looking forward to how they incorporate classic Kirby feels with their new sexy console. I know that from the gameplay we got to Whispy Woods, a classic Kirby villain and if you recall, the very first boss from Kirby’s Dreamland. I almost jumped out of my seat when I saw Whispy. I had a ton of fun kicking his ass back in the day.
The newest installment of the Kirby series definitely seems to have some of the old school feel with some new school coop and 3D elements, including the awesomeness that is sword wielding and fire breathing Kirby.
Nintendo took their time to show us actual game play and I’m sure all of us gamers can agree that it’s very much appreciated. Sure we’ll definitely have to wait a while to actually play it but I can’t wait to rumble and tumble with Kriby.
