Kirby is presently the king of Nintendo’s systems.
Only a couple months ago Nintendo made a big deal about announcing multiple Kirby releases for the Nintendo 3DS. Now it’s the Nintendo Switch’s turn for some love from the pink puffball.
Kirby will debut on the Nintendo Switch in an old-school, side-scrolling co-operative platformer like Kirby’s Return to Dreamland on the Wii.
From what was shown in the trailer this game will bring back many of Kirby’s classic abilities. There will also be new ones, including the ability to charm foes and have them work with you. With this ability in use either the computer or another player can take on the role of the charmed enemies and play alongside Kirby.
Very little was shown and the emphasis was placed on the co-operative feature. The game is tentatively titled Kirby and planned for release in 2018.
Here’s the trailer:
