Last Nintendo Direct, a brand new Kirby game was hinted at for the Nintendo 3DS. This time around, the Kirby game has been given a title and its features have been explained.
Titled Kirby Triple Deluxe, Kirby will be on a brand new adventure featuring new mechanics and game modes. One of these mechanics is the ability to jump back and forth into the background of a level using a special star that appears in the levels. Enemies such as trains and skiers can also take advantage of the layered levels to attack from the background to the foreground of each area.
Kirby will have access to the Hyper Nova ability. This power covers Kirby in a swirling rainbow and allows him to suck up massively sized enemies and open new paths. Kirby will have a total of twenty powers that he can copy. Some of the powers include the ability to use a whip, spear, beetle head, and a whirlwind of leaves.
Two Additional game modes have been revealed for Kirby Triple Deluxe. This first is called Kirby Fighters. This mode allows up to four players choose one of ten powers and face of against one another in various arenas. These arenas are dynamic in the sense that they can actually be used to attack the competing Kirbys.
The second game mode is called Dedede's Drum Dash. Similar to Harmoknight on the 3DS eShop, King Dedede travels from one end to the next grabbing coins and bouncing on drums to the beat of various and well known Kirby songs. The objective is to obtain the highest score possible.
Kirby Triple Deluxe has not been given a specific release month or season, but it will release in 2014 on the Nintendo 3DS.
