Next week’s 3DS Virtual Console release in Japan is Kirby’s Dream Land 2. The major feature this game introduces over the original Kirby’s Dreamland is three additional characters, who can carry Kirby: Rick (a hamster), Kine (a fish) and Coo (an owl).
Each one has their own unique abilities. Rick can run, Kine can swim and Coo can fly. They also affect Kirby’s abilities.
Kirby’s Dreamland 2 will cost 400 yen ($5), and will be up for download on the Japanese eShop on February 15th.
