Kirby™ and his friends are back in an adventure designed to satisfy
longtime Kirby fans and beginners alike. When an alien spaceship crashes
in the otherwise peaceful realm of Planet Pop Star, its pieces are
scattered throughout the land. Players must guide Kirby as he retrieves
the ship's parts and helps an alien return to its home planet. This
time, however, he's not alone. At any time, up to three more players can
join in the fun and play as Meta Knight, King Dedede, Waddle Dee or a
different color Kirby.
Kirby’s powerful Copy Ability returns, allowing him to inhale, spit
and transform as he encounters enemies.
Players can deploy classic and new abilities, including:
- Sword: Kirby dons a green cap and wields a sword.
- Beam: Kirby wears a jester hat and can shoot energy from a magic wand.
- Whip: Kirby wears a cowboy hat and can lasso enemies.
- Leaf: Kirby is surrounded by a whirlwind of leaves.
The game also introduces new Super Abilities, which are activated when
Kirby inhales special enemy characters. For example, the “Ultra Sword”
Super Ability allows Kirby to swing a giant sword and wipe out an
entire screen’s worth of foes.
Up to four players can enjoy the action together. (Additional
controllers required and sold separately.) While playing cooperatively
to progress through the game, player can join and leave the game at
