I hope they have Kirbys for options of player 2. Would rather play as them for helpers.

And also, I REALLY hope they improve helper bots. They've always been notoriously bad.

Unsurprisingly, this was my favorite part of the spotlight. I love that they brought back both Clean Kirby as well as ability mixing from Kirby 64.

Hopefully it's not too far off in 2018.

Wasn't expecting a Kirby Switch game so soon, hyped as heck for it though.

This game looks absolutely gourgous graphics-wise, wasn't expecting helpers, I think I prefer RTDL's version of multiplayer but hey something different is still nice. Bring back Bio Spark helper plz HAL

The ability mixing like Squeak Squad looks cool, hopefully it's expanded on more.

Yep, if I get the chance to get that game, then why not? For what I know, Kirby hasn't really disappointed anyone. It looks great overall, even though graphic are not hugely different from RtDL.

Really? Sure, Kirby's model looked similar, but I feel like there's a lot more detail present than RtDL had.

Yeah I know but when I first Saw it it screamed RtDM to me maybe because the location is the same, it took me a while to really realize the difference. It was more of a shoutout if you know what I mean.

This looks... exactly the same as other Kirby games. I have a question for you Kirby fans: how come you don't mind that Kirby often has the exact same gameplay and graphical style when you dislike that in the NSMB series? Correct me if I'm wrong, but this game looks reeealy similar to RtDM and Triple Deluxe.

Because Kirby actually adds stuff that makes each new installment have it's own identity.

They use the same formula, but they always have a creative twist.

If we look at the NSMB series, you get:
The same type of worlds each time
The same plotline
The same characters as bosses
Incredibly similar power-ups
Very few unique animations

Comparatively, the Kirby series alters things. With entirely new bosses, worlds, Abilities, and gimmicks every time. Kirby has figured out how to twist a formula to be creative no matter the circumstances. The gameplay may be similar, but there's always something new, which can't be entirely said about the NSMB series.

Have you played a Kirby game before?

Ah, I get it. I suppose you can't judge a book (or game) by its cover.

Though I'm a Kirby fan, that Whispy Woods or a lookalike being the first boss is really starting to grind on me despite this going on for practically over a decade and also I AM noticing the similarity between this and Return to Dreamland and Triple Deluxe and Planet Robobot and the super similarities are starting to rub me.

So in a sense I think Luigi 64DD has a point.

It's a lot of the same game just done really well
but this one's got combo moves and that's *bleep*ing exciting
cause this means we might get Refrigerator Kirby again

Oh yes, that's a fun powerup and a fun forum theme to go by. ;)

Rock + Cutter was among the best of the comboes though. It's even a bit OP I think. Pitch.
