In a very unexpected move, Nintendo released Kirby Fighters 2 on the 23rd of September for Nintendo Switch! Check out the game’s launch trailer below:
The game includes 17 of Kirby’s famous copy abilities, as well as introduces the brand new copy ability Wrestler. Other abilities include Sword, Cutter, Beam, Artist, Yo-yo and Water. Familiar faces from the franchise include Bandana Waddle Dee, Meta Knight, King Dedede, Gooey and Magolor, with each character, including Kirby himself, wielding a distinct fighting style for a total of 22 throughout the game. Rare hats can be collected through gameplay, with Special Rare hats ™ being available if you played Kirby Star Allies, or Super Kirby Clash.
Kirby Fighters 2 also includes a story mode, pitting Kirby against King Dedede and Meta Knight in a duel and teaming the player up with either a friend or a CPU to fight back. The game contains roguelike elements with different enemies waiting to face you each time you climb the tower for your duel.
In terms of Multiplayer, Kirby Fighters 2 can be played by up to 4 players locally on a system, though they can also be connected via local wireless or online play. Unfortunately, footage of online play has already been published, showing dropped framerates, lag, and general online issues that Nintendo is notorious for. No word on a possible patch to fix these issues has been given, although we should note the time this is publishing (we weren’t the ones who decided to release a game at 9PM EST), and that Tokyo Game Show is starting relatively soon in Japan.
Kirby Fighters 2 is out now exclusively on Nintendo Switch. Get the game now with our Nintendo eShop gift cards below:
