Kirby Star Allies is an upcoming 2D platformer developed by HAL Laboratory and published by Nintendo for their Switch console. It will be the first game of the series to be published on the Switch.

This newest Kirby title brings back classic gameplay along with some new mechanics. Kirby’s returning copy abilities include Sword, Fire, Water, Bomb, Broom, and many more – and they now may be imbued with elements such as fire or electricity in order to solve puzzles or unleash powerful attacks. Up to three enemies can be recruited as helpers by hitting them with hearts. These can be controlled by the CPU or up to 3 other players with the horizontal Joy-Con controller configuration, or 8 Joy-Con with 4 Joy-Con Grips.
