Harness the power of a mysterious mech to stop the ruthless Haltmann Works Company from mechanizing Kirby's home world. Smash through tough obstacles, lift heavy objects with ease, and scan enemies to shape-shift into new Modes with powerful abilities in this supercharged action-platformer!

That's right—Kirby's Robobot Armor can shape-shift into different modes by scanning enemies to copy their moves—like the new Jet Mode. Not to mention, Kirby™ can copy abilities the old-fashioned way too—by inhaling them! After saving the world, team up with three friends to defeat foes in Team Kirby Clash, an RPG-styled 4-player* brawl where you choose from varied classes and level them up. Need a quick fix? Take on challenges in a 3D space and aim for a high score in Kirby 3D Rumble. Ready for a challenge? Play as Meta Knight in a blazing-fast time attack mode to fight new bosses and tougher enemies while Kirby takes a well-deserved nap!

  • Use the mysterious Robobot Armor to scan enemies and shape-shift into powerful Modes
  • Kirby's copy ability returns, allowing him to inhale, spit out foes, and transform
  • Employ new and improved Copy Abilities including:
-Doctor: Use clip boards, throw pills, and mix concoctions
-ESP: Wear a cool hat and use psychic abilities
-Poison: Spray toxic mists and other noxious abilities
-Super Smash Bros.: Gain Kirby's updated Super Smash Bros.™ move set
  • Use the Download Play feature in Team Kirby Clash, an RPG-styled mode for up to 4 players* (or sharpen your skills by playing solo)
  • Enjoy a selection of additional game modes, including Meta Knightmare Returns, Kirby 3D Rumble, and The Arena
  • Collect hidden code cubes and stickers in every level and use the stickers to decorate your Robobot Armor

Story[edit]

The Haltmann Works Company, an industrialization company, has invaded Planet Popstar with a robot army with the intent of mechanizing the entire planet. King Dedede and Meta Knight attempt to stop the invaders, but are easily defeated. It now falls on Kirby to save Planet Popstar.

Gameplay[edit]

Much of the basic gameplay remains the same as in previous Kirby platforming games, most notably Kirby: Triple Deluxe, in that level designs take Kirby into both the foreground and background. The main new gameplay gimmick, however, is the Robobot Armor. During certain stages and sections, Kirby can pilot a suit of powerful armor that can unscrew platforms, lift objects, and punch enemies. The Robobot Armor can also scan certain enemies to obtain Copy Abilities. Throughout each stage, the player can find three Code Cubes, which are required to access the boss stage for each world, as well as stickers, which can be used to customize the Robobot Armor.

Four additional game modes are also available. The first is Team Kirby Clash, a multiplayer RPG-style game in which players take specific roles to battle enemies. The second is Kirby 3D Rumble, a game taking place in a 3D space. The third is Meta Knightmare Returns, in which the player plays through the game's stages as Meta Knight. Finally, the game also features The Arena, a boss rush mode. The multiplayer modes can be played using either Local Play or Download Play.

Scanning an amiibo during gameplay gives Kirby a Copy Ability and a piece of food. Several amiibo give him a random ability, while many give specific abilities based on the character, and the Kirby series amiibo grant exclusive abilities.
