Never thought Devil Frog Dedede would ever actually show up in a game.

I ain't complaining.

This looks sweet.

The probability of me getting this game is a lot higher now. Plus, I like RtDL, so I guess I'll love this one.

If Kirby 64/dream land 3 callbacks and purple aura surrounding possessed bosses doesn't lead to dark matter coming back, I will be shocked.

Yeah, Kirby has been known to, despite being Nintendo's cutest franchise, having the darkest kinds of bosses for a kid's game.

Not to say I'm complaining, I like it, it adds some twist to it, but for them to put such things in kid-friendly games is kinda weird if you ask me.

Thus far, the Kirby's animal buddies are confined to the "Clean" power-up, which incidentally came from Kirby in Dreamland 3, where they all appeared (Chuchu the jelly, Nago the cat and Pitch the bird are new). Maybe similar to Kirby 64's Stone+Cutter powerup where they only show up in one of Kirby's powers.

I kind of want to know what the developers of Kirby thought about Kirby's animal buddies as mounts, because we never see them again. I would love to see them return again, and if required, even the enemy-turned-allies could mount them too.

Thank you for reading.

There's probably interest in the characters themselves; Rick Kine and Coo have been cameoing a lot recently (even physically as of late) but the mount system seemed like a way of getting around Kirby only having one power. Because movesets nowadays are more expanded and multipurpose, it's probably harder to justify having them back as mounts unless they were given unique abilites (kinda like Dedede in Kirby 64).

Some new stuff revealed in Nintendo Direct this morning!
My thoughts:

-Artist Kirby looks amazing, I've been dreaming of a Paint rehash for a while so I'm very happy it's happening. Spider looks cool too, love the little hat. Additionally, Suplex has now been confirmed as returning, so that's neat.
-Friend Abilities look to be fun to mess around with, I can't wait to throw everybody everywhere.
-Boss battles are looking really varied and engaging, those Meta clones along with Buff Dedede make me very excited to see what other twists they have.
-That last cinematic at the end is breathtaking and there is no doubt this is going to be the most beautiful Kirby game so far.
-A March 16th release date! I wasn't expecting it so soon but I'm grubby to get my hands on it

Yup, I can confirm, one gorgeous looking Kirby game we got there.

Also I didnít expect to see that you could have Bonkers as allies.

Looks like the animal friends (well, Rick, Kine and Coo) are back, like I hoped would happen! They are even ridden on like the old Kirby games, which is awesome. Interesting is that they are swappable characters instead of being separate like the others. At least Gooey is his own character.

It got me a bit interested in this game, but not impulse yet.

Thank you for reading.

dream friends are amazing (especially MARX!) but i just hope that they let you play as them (and other helpers for that matter as well i guess) when you're playing single player because not having that option was the most disappointing thing about playable dedede/meta knight/waddle dee in return to dreamland

Who cares why it is, all I care is that he's playable and that was enough to get an excited scream out of me.
