JAMESON YOU SLIME!!

Pay ya for what, standing there?
I saw some RPG-esque elements, so I thought for a second "Wait, is this the Kirby RPG everyone wants?"
It's interesting. Since it's free I'll download it and try it out.

I must say, I really dig Healmore's new look.

Also Sword Hero is "Blade Hero" now apparently.

So I've played the first few battles now. Some notes:

-While this is a sequel in terms of gameplay, the story seems to be a complete reboot (similarly to what Galaxy 2 did), indicated by the fact that Bandana Waddle Dee does not recognize Kirby at the beginning of the game (much like in the original). Whether this means Taranza and Dark Mind will be the villains again, I still do not know.

-Colossal Waddle Dee now wields a spear, and is the second enemy rather than the first (now coming after new enemy Hornhead). The boss is still a complete joke, of course, as his attacks are still ridiculously slow and he still falls asleep on the battlefield.

-The Shrine of Passwords returns. No passwords have been released yet.

-The Shoppe, Gem Apples, the Gem Apple Tree, Heroic Missions, and Vigor all return. The Gem Apple limit has also been increased to 5000 and costs $40 USD total (in comparison, the original was 3000 apple cap and costs $27 USD total).

-Online functionality has been added, alongside a new mechanic known as Stickers that's supposed to notify the other players of how you're feeling in the moment. Local multiplayer also returns.

-Sword Hero is still referred to as such in-game, with "Blade Hero" only being used in the reveal trailer.

i just finished downloading it. I never played Kirby Battle Royale, so I can tell this new experience is gonna be fun
Battle Royale is actually a different game entirely. This is a sequel to Team Kirby Clash Deluxe (which was also a free-to-start game, for whenever you get a 3DS).

Yeah, the stickers could have referenced more Kirby games than it did, especially in terms of spinoffs and the anime. But they referenced a Rainbow Curse character so no complaints here.

The game has microtransactions.....

WHY NINTENDO, WHY?!!!!!

No loot boxes though.

The first password has been announced! Enter "GEMAPPLES" at the Shrine of Passwords to get--you guessed it--10 Gem Apples.

Additionally, the Super Kirby Clash News Channel has launched. If you subscribe to it via the Switch news feed, then tap the link at the bottom of the article, you can get 10 more Gem Apples!

I would hardly call Kirby Clash to have "microtransactions"...even if it technically does by definition. The difference is that, in my opinion, Kirby Clash is one of the only games that gets it right. I say that for one reason: there are reasonable money spending caps ($40 for 5000 apples), and once they're reached, the game circumvents all of the f2p elements with essentially unlimited apples. Kirby Clash is what I call a true "choose how much you spend" game. And, even if there's a lot of waiting involved, it's perfectly possible to play without spending. I only wish all f2p games would follow Kirby Clash's example.

I actually agree with you.

Unlike mobile games they're aren't any pop-up ads baiting you to buy something.

If you're a Nintendo Switch Online member, Nintendo has announced a free offer of 100 Gem Apples! You can access this through Nintendo Switch Online > Special Offers on the eShop, and the gem apples will automatically be rewarded to you once you click "Accept".

I must say that this game is much more generous with Gem Apples than the previous game. There's much less waiting because of it, and the apples aren't devalued either. It's great.

I like that Nightmare is (sort of) in it.

Design wise he was always my favourite of the one off badguys.
