Amid the celebration of Kirby’s 30th anniversary, the newest upcoming Kirby title for Nintendo is releasing in just a few days on February 24th.
Kirby’s Return to DreamLand Deluxe is an upcoming remaster of the original Wii game that came back in 2011, with plenty of added content and updates that are looking to give it enough polish to truly make it a deluxe package both as a singleplayer and a multiplayer family-friendly title.
Kirby has been a staple franchise of Nintendo alongside all other exclusive titles such as Mario, Pokemon, Zelda, Fire Emblem, Metroid and more. Being true to its classic platforming gameplay, Kirby fills a role within the videogame genre for Nintendo that other games cannot fit into.
There have been plenty of trailers and overview videos of the game to get the feel of it, with a demo also available for Switch owners to try the game out. The title comes with a mix of both singleplayer and multiplayer features such as support for up to four people to play through the game. There are also many other new additions to the Wii title such as a brand new form for Kirby, alongside the addition of new sub-games to the already large catalogue of sub-games to enjoy. We’ve taken the time to give you all the info in detail so you’ll be fully versed with what to expect regardless if you’re picking up the title or not.
The original game is back with its full story and the traditional Kirby gameplay of platforming through the map, alongside Kirby’s signature move of copying enemy abilities. There is also a special Epilogue to add to the original Story which will intrigue players to go through the game even if they have played the original. There is also the mechanic of super abilities for each copy form for Kirby, being super broken and able to completely (and even literally) crush all enemies.
There has also been an addition of the Mecha Copy, with a versatile moveset of gameplay that people can look to fully test out. Having the power to shoot super big laser beams and even solid melee fighting capability only adds to the huge lineup of what Kirby can do in so many copy forms. Other than that, the whole catalogue of sub-games from the original Wii game is also here, with the addition of two new ones as well. There are also plenty of customization options and rewards that give accessories, challenge levels and more in Kirby’s Return to DreamLand Deluxe.
As with the original, this game also sets up features to enjoy the game with up to 4 total players running through the map as different coloured kirbys, as well as different friendly characters in the Kirby universe. Even outside of this, the sub-games come as the perfect blend of minigame titles to enjoy with people, the same as how Mario Party games are fun to enjoy with friends and family.
There are now a total of ten sub-game titles, the eight original ones from the original title, and two new ones named Megalor’s Tome Trackers and Booming Blasters. All other favourites such as Samurai Kirby and Bomb Rally will be fully remastered and supports up to 4 Co-OP players.
The game looks to be another solid first-party exclusive Nintendo title and a fun family-friendly title to pick up. It shall release on February 24th, with preorders already open to buy it digitally on the Nintendo eShop. It will also hit shelves as a physical game on the same day. Kirby’s Amiibo will also come with many functions including different rewards for scanning different Kirby Character Amiibos.
