Firstly, by completing certain requirements, you’ll unlock the Jambastion Mage Trio to use. They’ll play as one character, but instead of swapping between each other depending on the attack like Rick, Kine, and Coo, you tag them out for another whenever you want. They’ll swap out with a high-five.
‘The Ultimate Choice’ mode is also getting a new difficulty for Soul Melter difficulty called Soul Melter Extra, which is toggled on via a button. It makes Kirby face off against harder bosses added for ‘Heroes in Another Dimension’, such as Another Whispy Woods.
The original three Dream Friends – Bandana Waddle Dee, King Dedede, and Meta Knight, are also getting new moves to buff them up to the powercreep new standard set by the later Dream Friends. In the picture, we can see Dedede using his jumping attack seen in his boss fight which wasn’t in his moveset previously, and Bandana Dee is using a charging attack with his spear. It seems Meta Knight will have some sort of new charge move.
Other details revealed include that six new Celebration Pictures are being added with the update. The staff also talked about the making of the game, and that Adeleine was meant to be voiced at one point, with them even finding a staff member to do so, but the idea was scrapped later on.
Kirby: Star Allies is available for Nintendo Switch. The third big update is set to come out on November 30, 2018.
