Kirby Triple Deluxe trailer shows off classic copy powers

Just ahead of its scheduled May 2 North American release, Nintendo has released a new trailer for Kirby Triple Deluxe.


In a universe inhabited by Mario, Link, and Samus, Kirby is one of Nintendo's most underrated characters. In fact, Kirby Triple Deluxe has largely gone under a lot of radars. But Nintendo is making a late push for its upcoming North American release with a new trailer.

The latest trailer (noticeably shorter than previously ones) shows Kirby utilizing many of his powers that he copies from foes, using his 'Bell' power to take cover and his 'Whip' power to whip enemies... whip them real good. It also shows off some of the classic Kirby platforming elements that harken back to his old-school NES and Game Boy platformers, like Kirby's Adventure and Kirby's Dream Land.

Kirby Triple Deluxe is set to arrive in North America on May 2, nearly four months after it released in Japan.
