Kirby Star Allies is Nintendo's Sleeper Hit - Even though there hasn't been a real Kirby game in quite a while, this four-player game is shaping up to be Nintendo's sleeper for the first half of the year.
Honestly i'm more excited for this game than anything coming out int he near future. It looks fantastic.
Regardless if it's great or not, it will never be looked on the same level of some of the games of last year. Lat year had such a good lineup.
It won't but the Switch doesn't have a ton of local multiplayer games on this level. Taking that into account it could easily be a smash hit.
Kirby legit is like IF the concepts of Yoshi and Castlevania came together. I wish Nintendo would make a full Kirby campaign with light RPG elements and bosses, and to stay off the gimmicks. This game has co-op but I hope the story and game play isn't hindered. Sadly it looks like they took elements from Kirby's character in Smash Brothers and just paste it onto a background. I want this to be good. I would really like to see Kirby Epic Yarn ported to the switch. I love paper crafts games
Keep bringing in the exclusives Nintendo! I been having a blast with Nintendo and Sony exclusives
I’m honestly surprised. Nintendo’s release schedule has actually been consistent!
that would be a really cool element but like a kirby mario RPG
I'm more excited for the ports like Hyrule Warriors. I never bought the DLC. Kirby is okay, but the ports coming out are some of the best from the Wii U era.
I'm excited for HW too but this is an original Switch game, and it could be a great party game.
I mean that's okay too as the Wii U had a very very solid lineup.
It looks okay, I 'd prefer Smash or Metroid. Kirby is such a small IP.
You underestimate Kirby. And this is the perfect party game and just what the Switch needs at this juncture.
Hope it does well!
I think it will considering there's not much coming out in the direct vicinity of it.
I'd be shocked if it didn't do well. The last traditional console Kirby game was on the Wii so I'm sure people are hungry for one.
I think too the multiplayer will be a huge appeal. People could use it for parties and whatnot
It’s shaping up to be the new New Super Mario Brothers of the Switch. Can’t wait!
I want paper mario
Kirby has sold over a million before. Don't underestimate the pink power of puff. And it has multiplayer, that could be a selling point.
With the multiplayer it may be the best selling Kirby yet, but it still may catch people by surprise
I checked. Four Kibry games have passed 2 million.
No online co-op = No buy. My friends don't live next door anymore and we all have jobs and/or families to attend to; we can't be making multiple round-trips just to play offline co-op games.
Then play by yourself, still going to be a fantastic game.
That’s really just your loss then.
While I'm a bit burnt out on Kirby atm I do think this looks great.
I haven't enjoyed a Kirby game since Kirby super star. The gameplay is just too bland for me. I'm actually looking forward to Yoshi.
Im looking forward to a Smash port, Pokemon, Yoshi, or metroid Prime 4 more so than Kirby.
