Japanese Video Details New Kirby Battle Royale Features

It’s in Japanese, but we’ve watched anime before

Yesterday, a new video was released detailing more of the specifics of Kirby’s upcoming brawler, Kirby Battle Royale. The video is in Japanese, but there are a few things we can take away from it.


For one, we now know several of the powers that will be available in the game. Sword, Hammer, Whip, Bomb, Ice, Spear, Tornado, Cutter, Doctor, Parasol, Beetle, Ninja and Fighter all make an appearance in the new video, as all 13 of the included powers.

In addition to the powers being used in-action, the trailer showcases each of the game’s ten game modes. Among them are Treasure Hunting; a mode focused on collecting the most coins; Battle Royale; one’s standard beat-‘em-up mode; and Flag Shoot; a mode similar to Capture-the-Flag.

Kirby Battle Royale is set to release for the Nintendo 3DS on January 19. The earlier release date seen in the video is for the Japanese retail version only.
