There better not be a typography error at the printers ... people might see the pink round thing and get the wrong idea.

If Shepard doesn't bring help soon there won't be a Dreamland left to save.

Much like locusts, when multiple Kirbys are in the same spot its called a plague because nothing survives.

This is a really cool new idea

Multiple giant, invincible Kirbys? We're pretty much fucked, aren't we?

When did Kirby more or less become equal to a swarm of bugs.

@Shadow: Kirby is eating food to make more of himself. So by your own logic you should like this game.

I think what is most sad about the Kirby Franchise getting hijacked by whomever is developing these games is that many new players will never get the joy out of playing real Kirby games.

The fun of Kirby games was always swallowing different enemies and stealing their powers and eventually they came up with the idea of mixing different powers by swallowing different enemies. You could mix and match, experiment. It was basically a kid friendly Megaman.

Whoever is making these new kirby games is basically using the same Gimmic nintendo uses to try to sell their crappy rip-off Minigames like their soccer(though I liked mario soccer), Olympics and baseball. Just use the franchises character and its theme, but base the game not at all on the franchise's actual theme. Its basically reskinning a game with the mario theme. In this case they are reskinning some other game with a Kirby theme, but based nothing at all on how the kirby games worked...

For this game; you could have just as easily replaced kirby with Link from the legend of zelda and called it something like; Four Swords Adventure 2(ironically this game looks to play similar, but without the joys of multiplayer).

There is nothing wrong with coming up with new games with new mechanics, but exploiting the character franchise just to get a game out is extremely transparent and pathetic. If the game is good, it will sell itself. Maybe it won't get bought day 1(though I understand that this is a major focus) but people will pick up the game and tell their friends out great it is and game review sites will take notice how great it is.

I think they simply decided to use kirby as the theme because they were afraid the game wouldn't sell. But then that simply makes people annoyed that this is yet another game that has nothing to do with kirby and reminds them how much they want a real kirby game.

That said, the game looks good. But I want a real kirby game and not another copy and paste theme character in a game that has nothing to do with it. HAL(or whomever owns kirby now), is trying to Out-do nintendo it seems.

If he was gaining the power of the fruit he was eating, it would be closer to what i want from a Kirby game, even though that would still be pretty stupid. As far as this one goes, I won't be picking it up.

I see Kirby no longer appeals to the shithead market.

That's kind of a self-destructive way of saying how you don't like it either

This. This game gives a new definition to the word Clusterfuck.

To all you peeps arguing about the "real Kirby game": The OG "Kirby's Dream Land" on the Gameboy DID NOT have you absorb the powers.

Kirby sucked and spat. If he swallowed an enemy that was that, no powers, nuthin. Kirby can spit an airball projectile on his own that went half-screen while spitting out a non-stop star projectile after sucking up an enemy.

The "suck enemies to gain powers" thing was something that came afterwards and real Kirby purists aren't afraid of gameplay change in the slightest after this fact. Every "real Kirby game" is a game with Kirby as the main character. Period.

Sounds like a cool idea, but the sprite work looks absolutely terrible.
