Update - NOA confirms release date
Nintendo of America has confirmed a Western release date of August 17 for Kirby’s Dream Buffet.
A new overview trailer has also been published, which you can view below:
Announced last month, Kirby’s Dream Buffet is a multiplayer game where players compete against each other by rolling their Kirbys around food-filled stages.
According to Nintendo, the game will consist of four levels, and the aim is to eat as much food as possible throughout.
“Kirby’s Dream Buffet finds a gang of Kirbys rolling through a smorgasbord of food-themed stages in four rounds of frantic multiplayer fun,” a Nintendo statement reads.
“Players will race each other through these delicious obstacle courses to collect strawberries as Kirby grows, bumping other players off the stage and using familiar Copy Abilities – or Copy Food Abilities, as they are called here – to thwart the competition.
Nintendo claims the game “offers accessible gameplay for players of all skill levels, but also presents a healthy challenge for those looking to satiate their craving for friendly competition”.
Kirby’s Dream Buffet follows on the heels of Kirby and the Forgotten Land, Kirby’s critically-acclaimed 3D platforming debut.
VGC’s Kirby and the Forgotten Land review calls it “another accomplished charmer from HAL’s inhalatory hero,” adding: “The platforming won’t give Mario any restless nights, but the exuberant creativity around it makes for a bold, buoyant adventure.”
