Are you ready for relentlessly adorable, action-packed fights with the world’s most powerful pink puffball? Accept the challenge and ascend the treacherous battle tower in the Kirby Fighters 2 game, now available in Nintendo eShop on the Nintendo Switch system. It can also be purchased on Nintendo.com.
In Kirby Fighters 2, Kirby delivers a madcap gauntlet of attacks to each battle, with a selection of 17 of the most iconic copy abilities from throughout the Kirby series, like Sword and Cutter. Kirby Fighters 2 also marks the debut of Kirby’s new Wrestler ability. Don’t let Kirby’s cuteness throw you off guard. This athlete’s ornate mask hides the face of a determined fighter.
Kirby joins familiar friends and foes, such as Bandana Waddle Dee, Meta Knight, King Dedede, Gooey and Magolor, to duke it out in a series of blistering battles. Each of the playable abilities and characters has their own play style and set of moves, so you’ll want to experiment with them all to discover and master your favorite. Between Kirby and his foes there are a total of 22 different fighting styles to try out, with expressive move sets that let you bring your own flair to battle.
In the game’s Story Mode, King Dedede and Meta Knight challenge you to a buddy duel. You’ll be able to enlist the help of a friend or the CPU as you climb your way to the final battle. Strategically choose items between each floor of an ascending tower to boost your stats and send those foes packing! Each time you ascend the tower, different foes await you. For more multiplayer fun, up to four players can battle on the same system locally*, on multiple Nintendo Switch systems over local wireless**, or with online play.*** With free-for-alls and team battles you’ll be able to customize rules like items, stage hazards and even the ability to come back as a ghost in team battles. There’s never a dull moment, even if you get knocked out!
When it’s Kirby vs. Kirby vs. Kirby vs. Kirby, will the pink pugilist still emerge victorious? Your skill and determination will help decide who reigns triumphant as the hero.

$20.00 is pretty steep and it’s only a slight upgrade from fighters, compared to kirby clash 2 which has a lot more content than its prequel yeah I’m going to wait for a discount on this one, it’s a shame they didn’t add any other abilities in like kirby has so many ability and it seems like they always use less for spinoff titles.
I can see some like ice, spark, spike, ufo etc being harder to balance for a pvp setting but yeah is kinda dissapointing the numbers hasnt increased more, I’m also hesitant to buy just based on my lack of confidence in quality of the online
My thoughts exactly. There’s so many copy abilites, and with 2v2 they could’ve added the fusion function to mix abilities together like in Star Allies, yet they only added a few abilities, why? So much more content is missing from this, it doesn’t make any sense at all. I’m definitely waiting until this is 50% off or more
I inow sakurai created both kirby and SSB…but seriously? Seems like Hal only knows to clone SSB with those kirby spin offs.
They should focus on giving a true kirby experience, IMO star allies and that battle royale were disappointing
Uhh you do know that ssb borrows the kirby moveset formula right with having specific and certain moves to use depending on the button combo, if anything ssb is the clone that implements it better, all kirby games (except air ride and spinoff titles that don’t require using abilites) play exactly like main title kirby games requiring you to use a limit amount of combos
Kirby and Smash were created by Sakurai, which is probably why the moves work similar to Kirby. However, Sakurai did not create these new Kirby fighting games, but they’re so damn similar to Smash.
Oh I assumed this would be free to play like that other Kirby game they released and the fact there doesn’t seem to be too much going on with it.
Honestly looks pretty cool.
Update: meh. It’s okay. Not anything special.
