Good thing the Direct finishes at 6:40am AWST, 15-20 mins before I leave to work.
Super Kirby Clash is technically a sequel in terms of gameplay, although the story seems to be more of a reboot in a similar vein to Galaxy 2, seeing as Bandana Waddle Dee once again does not seem to recognize Kirby.somehow I managed to unintentionally predict that there would be a Wii port and a 3DS port (Xenoblade Chronicles 1 and Kirby Clash)
I suppose that's true but from the looks of it the game looks very similar (such as the bosses shown) to the original Team Kirby Clash that it looked like a HD rendition of the same game, very likely with more bosses introduced since so I am expecting some Star Allies bosses to show up. Since I finished the original Kirby Clash without buying those apples I didn't feel invested in the original, although I wonder if there are any Beam users with ultimate gear to help me out again.Super Kirby Clash is technically a sequel in terms of gameplay, although the story seems to be more of a reboot in a similar vein to Galaxy 2, seeing as Bandana Waddle Dee once again does not seem to recognize Kirby.
That surprised me too, since Super Star is the more popular and well-known game and was released a year before Kirby 3. Still, I can understand why they chose to release Kirby 3 first, as the gameplay is much more simplistic and releasing it first will probably help the game become more well-known (and hence, allow for more references to be made to it). Even though I prefer Super Star, Kirby 3 is great as well and I'm looking forward to playing it on a portable system (as the game skipped 3DS VC entirely). Super Star will almost certainly be added later down the line.Speaking of Kirby, I am very surprised that Kirby 3 is the first Kirby platformer for the SNES Online (instead of Super Star), and one that I really like because those Kirby games are very underappreciated. Of course there's Kirby's Dream Course as well which I thought was also an underappreciate game, albeit one that benefits greatly from save states/restore points. I imagine that Kirby's Avalanche might not even make an appearance because it feels like that game is destined to be forgotten.
