Nintendo Provides A Closer Look At Kirby: Planet Robobot
Nintendo UK released a video today that showcased more of Nintendo’s upcoming Kirby game for 3DS, Kirby: Planet Robobot. My thoughts on the video and the actual video itself are below.
Kirby: Planet Robobot will be coming to the 3DS in June. Previously Nintendo had revealed that the game will see Kirby taking control of a big robot for the first time. Today, though, Nintendo UK released a video that showcased more of the game!
In Planet Robobot, Kirby will be able to copy enemies abilities by eating them again and he’ll be able to take control of a robot, that’ll be able scan enemies and copy their abilities. The new UK video shows that there will be some new abilities for regular Kirby such as ESP, Doctor, and Poison. I really liked how the Doctor ability looked especially, but ESP and Poison looked neat too. Perhaps the best part of the video is when Kirby takes control of the robot!
The robot in Planet Robobot looks very cool and I like that you’ll be able to customize your robot with special decals! Some of these you’ll find and others can be unlocked with Play Coins. I love when games make use of the Play Coins. I tend to carry my 3DS around a lot and so I always have at least a few Play Coins. The decals seems like a fun use of them. I also really liked how the robot can turn into vehicles! The video shows that Kirby can be a plane for side scrolling shooting sequences, what looks to be a helicopter, and a tank. Kirby: Planet Robobot looks like a lot of fun.
And if one game doesn’t seem like its enough for you, Kirby: Planet Robobot will include two other Kirby games in the same package: Team Kirby Dash and Kirby 3D Rumble. Team Kirby Dash looks like a local multiplayer game where you can team up with friends to beat enemies and Kirby 3D Rumble has you playing as Kirby in a 3D environment to take down enemies. I like the look of both games and think they’ll be excellent additions to the overall Kirby: Planet Robobot package!
