    Damn I really just wish there would be a 3d Kirby Game that uses the copy-power system from Kirby 64 Crystal Shards. It definitely added a lot of strategy to the game and fun puzzle/platforming elements. I would die a happy man if I could see an updated version of that.

    Edit: Also get ready for a new Hardcore Kirby!

    • How was it? I can’t remember :S

      • andref

        The copy powers allowed up to a combination of three powers for different effects

        • AkuLord3

          You mean combination for 2 powers

          • andref

            I just forgot if it was 2 or 3

      • Rohan Kishibe

        Here’s an awesome video to jog your memory.

        • That looks so freaking awesome *^* I don’t think I ever got the chance to play this game :CCC

          • Rohan Kishibe

            It is worth it just to get a N64 emulator on you computer and download the Kirby 64 rom. It’s really fun!

          • –Or the Wii collection!

    • AkuLord3

      Indeed my friend and also a return to Checkerboard Chase…SERIOUS THE BEST MINIGAME EVER!!!

    • Rogerrmark

      The option to combine powers kicked asses!

      Miss those cheesy cutscenes as well,lol. Kirby should travel with a party of companions once more.

    • Krisi92

      Combining powers was cool, but like half of the powers were pretty stupid, and every ability knowing only one move made the game pretty bland one you knew each ability. I prefer the Super Star way much more, because each ability is really unique and feel like a completely new character.

      • Rohan Kishibe

        Yeah but every ability was helpful in some way or in some level. Whether it was for fighting bosses or finding shards, each had it’s uses.

        • Krisi92

          That’s not true, there were many abilities that you didn’t have to use, not to mention that there were a few completely useless ones, like fire + ice. And I’d take a game with a lot of possibilities and optional moves than a simpler one that limits what and where you can/have to use, but to each their own, I guess.

          • Rohan Kishibe

            you have to use every single combo ability available to get all the crystals

          • Krisi92

            Are you abeolutely sure? I’m pretty positive about some abilities not being crucial for all the crystals. Even if they are, I still very much prefer the more interesting abilities from the Super Star-like games.

  • brian

    I’m amazed that over the past couple of years, I’ve wanted to start this series but never got around to it.
    It seems like everything I’d want in a platformer, and in some ways all I’d want in a game.

    • mike

      it’s not even a platformer, kirby can float without ever getting tired. plus it’s too easy…

      • Suicunesol

        Sure it’s a platformer. He’s jumping on platforms. So it’s a platformer. Sure he can float, but you rarely can finish any level just floating the whole way through.

        And no, it’s not easy (at least the earlier games).

        • And the Extra mode. Try beating that without dying at least 8 times in one world.

    • You could get the Wii Collection to try out the series !
      Or Return to Dreamland :p

      • GH56734

        Wii Collection is a bit better since it’s slightly challenging (well, Return to Dreamland has some hard segments too, but they’re more scarce :( )
        My favourites are Atsumete Kirby (Mass Attack), Canvas Curse, and the GBC motion controlled one, which while hard are not orthodox platformers.

        And Stafy series is good too, for a similar yet different experience (floating doesn’t make the game easier)

        • I don’t play Kirby for challenge, but when I do it’s not thaaat hard to make it challenging. Play Return to Dreamland’s Extra Mode sticking with only one Copy Ability that’s not broken like Leaf or Whip. You actually need to learn boss patterns and stuff! :p
          Return to Dreamland is my favorite Kirby game by far. One of the more fun platformers I’ve played ever. Amazing Mirror and Dream Land 3 still have their own place in my heart.

          I actually don’t like Canvas Curse (borderline hate it) due to the lack of Kirby traditions and I HATE the gimmicky controls. Mass Attack, on the other hand, fixes a lot of my touch control problems and feels more like a portable 2D Pikmin and I loooove it.

          I find it kind of interesting your favorites are the ones using non-conventional control mechanics.

          • GH56734

            Oh, I loved Hoshi no Kirby 3/Dreamland 3 too (that last Super Famicom game) specifically because of the originality of the copy power system. The N64 one, while cool and expanding on it, felt lacking too much for me.
            Nightmare in Dream Land too I loved. And the Super Star Ultra version was such an excellent piece of entertainment.

            I love experimental games in general, and it’s often Kirby the poster boy for these in Nintendo’s case (not that I don’t like traditional Kirby games as well). I’m saddened about the concepts they abandoned for Kirby Wii, and Tilt’n Tumble 2. I really hope they’ll get revived somehow.

            However I hated that DS game with the rats even though I 100% it because of how dull it felt (second GBA one at least innovated with a Metroid-esque approach), finishing it felt almost like a shore (and this is coming from someone who loved Wario Master of Disguise).
            And that Kirby Yarn game was such a painfully wasted opportunity (not even that Canvas Curse easter egg could save it for me)

            About the challenge, I would almost always try to finish the game a second time with a powerless Kirby, or Suplex Kirby (which feels so different to play with). However, I miss the copy power puzzles from Great Cave Offensive, where it’s not up to the player to come up with self-imposed challenges, but a part of the game design.

  • AkuLord3

    Kirby Smash…oh yeah but MAN this looks fun, not that was going be a surprise

  • AlteisenX

    I wonder why Kirby still isn’t a world wide release… Its not as if there is a lot of text in these games…

    • Zurashii

      It takes a while to make Kirby mad in the boxart.

      • Kirby is already mad in the Japanese boxart, so I expect this in early February.

      • J_Joestar

        really? just grab a camera and pay some fool to go steal his food.

    • 하세요

      My only thought is since Christmas just passed, parents are less inclined to get their kids yet another game/toy in the following month. Better to let that whole thing die down a bit before releasing it. It’s not always about the translations, but marketing, too.

  • Göran Isacson

    Kirby just straight up impaled two enemies and slammed their dying bodies into the ground. And then he creates three copies of himself, purely so that he can enjoy battle with worthy opponents.

    We keep harping on how “American Kirby is Hardcore”, but has Kirby ever been anything BUT hardcore? You get in the way of the Great Devourer and his snack, and nothing can help you. Nothing can save you.

    • GH56734

      Dreamland 3 ending takes the cake.

      • Göran Isacson

        True, mopping the floor with some sentient ball of wicked darkness is pretty darn hardcore. I personally prefer Kirbys Return To Dreamland, even if it doesn’t end with Kirby exploding a black sphere. Mostly because finishing Magolor is a glory when you have the big sword.

  • I might be alone on this, but all I want is a 3D port/remake/sequel of Kirby & The Amazing Mirror. I know, it was part of the Ambassador program from a while back. I have it. There weren’t levels, it was one whole combined world. I just loved that feature so much, especially for a side-scroller. And the multi-player. I never got the chance to fully enjoy it’s multi-player campaign. Yeah, there were CPU Kirby’s running around, but it would’ve been much better if me and my friends could explore that world together…if only we each had a copy of the game…

  • TheExile285

    This game looks absolutely amazing. I recently discovered my College’s Video game club and I noticed some of the members have a 3DS. I hope one or 2 of them buy this so I can have someone to play the Brawl mini-game with.

  • Hinataharem

    I love these new powers! I can’t wait for a western announcement

  • This looks like another job for GameXplain!

  • Anthony Birken

    kirby-like smash bros? I’m in~
