A new world to explore

Now, with his mystical new friend Elfilin by his side, Kirby sets off on a grand adventure to rescue the Waddle Dees and return home!

Let’s save the Waddle Dees!

A whole new world awaits! Discover many different regions, each with multiple levels to venture through and objectives to complete. Explore by running, jumping and climbing, then inhale enemies to either copy their abilities or spit them back out as projectiles against others!

Hunt high and low for hidden areas and treasures, as well as secret objectives along the way. But watch out, because the Beast Pack won’t go down without a fight! Face off against the fierce bosses and defeat these fearsome foes once and for all.

Need a helping hand on your adventure? Then pull in a friend for local co-op multiplayer* and watch as Bandana Waddle Dee joins the action with his trusty spear!

Copy and paste

Many of Kirby’s famous Copy Abilities are back, along with some new ones to boot! By inhaling certain enemies and gulping them down, you can put their powers to work. Use them to take down the opposition, and find hidden treasure and secrets too!

Take your Copy Abilities to the next level…literally! As you progress, you can upgrade your skills with evolved Copy Abilities. Use them to take the fight to the Beast Pack with powerful attacks – and look good while doing it too!

When Copy Abilities just aren’t enough, try Mouthful Mode on for size! Look for special objects throughout each level for Kirby to use this new talent on: use Light-Bulb Mouth to light the way, Arch Mouth to glide through the air, Car Mouth to race past your enemies and many more.
