The pink puffball is back with Kirby for Switch

Matt Sayer 14 June 2017 NEWS

You'll have to wait until 2018 to play it, though.

This morning's Nintendo E3 Spotlight event gave us our first look at a new Kirby game coming to Nintendo Switch. The pink puffball's got a new trick up his sleeve with the ability to recruit enemies as allies who'll help him fight through the game's bright and colourful 2D levels.

Traditional Kirby mechanics like the ability to copy enemy abilities and suck up and spit out objects are all present and accounted for, and there'll also be support for up to four-player co-op.

No official name for this new Kirby game yet, but we do know it'll be coming to Switch some time in 2018.

We'll be covering E3 all week. You can follow along with us by checking out our guide on how to watch all the E3 2017 live streams, or catch up on all the news and announcements from the show at our E3 2017 hub.

Kirby for Switch is one of over 150 titles to be shown off at E3 this week. If last year's trends continue, there's a 70% chance it'll see release before E3 2018.
