E3 2017: Kirby Returns In New Nintendo Switch Title

The little pink puffball is coming to the Nintendo Switch in 2018.


Nintendo's E3 presentation has kicked off, and everyone is expecting big news with regards to releases for Nintendo's recently-launched Nintendo Switch console. Of course, it wouldn't be a true Nintendo machine without the return of classic first-party IP, and fans of Nintendo's mascot-most-hungry will soon be treated to an all-new Switch game simply titled Kirby.

As can be seen from the E3 trailer, Kirby is set to see the return of the classic Kirby formula including sidescrolling action and abilities taken from the likes of Driblee, Chilly, Poppy Bros. Jr., and more. We don't have a firm release date yet, but we do know that Nintendo intends to launch Kirby for the Nintendo Switch sometime in 2018.

      Well, seems like this cemented the deal. Time to get a switch soon.

      I like Kirby better as a familiar face on weird spinoff games (like Canvas Curse) than as an actual platformer. And for a platformer I think Epic Yarn had the right idea - change up the gameplay entirely. Traditional Kirby is just too slow and easy by today's standards.

        The series is still "my first platformer". But they can get quite hard if you dig into them. Still haven't beaten the hardest gauntlet in planet robobot.
