Kirby Heads to Planet Robobot in June

Yesterday’s Nintendo Direct broadcast revealed that we’ll be seeing more of Kirby on the Nintendo 3DS in the very near future, this time in Kirby: Planet Robobot. The game looks similar to Kirby: Triple Deluxe, but adds mechs into the gameplay as well as a Team Kirby Clash mode and amiibo support.

Kirby will essentially be using robot power to defeat enemies and obstacles, and up to four players will be able to team up to make this happen. The co-op mode sees friends questing together to defeat bosses, earning XP and rewards along the way.

Now, about those amiibo…?

“The game is compatible with a large variety of amiibo figures, and some give Kirby character-specific abilities. A new series of Kirby amiibo figures that includes Kirby, King Dedede, Meta Knight and Waddle Dee gives Kirby attributes specific to each character. Tapping the Kirby figure is the only way to get the UFO ability.”

Look at that! There will be four amiibo launching alongside this game—yes, four!—so plan your lives accordingly, everyone. These figures and the game will launch June 10th.
