  1. This Kirby mighty be short but I loved the last part of the game

    Also the DBZ wave was a surprise to me in the final boss

  2. I remember another user on here claiming that Kirby wouldn’t sell well because it was priced at $60 instead of $40. It’s good to see that they were wrong

      1. Personally, I like Robobot more, but Star Allies is still a great game and perfect for what the Switch is trying to be

  3. Kirby tearing it up! Glad to see it doing well but I will be waiting for the $40 pricepoint too. Hard to sell me on $60 2.5D. DK:TF got me at $50 new… four years later, Ninty is selling it for $60 now ;)
