Kirby Fighters 2 Revealed For Switch
Nintendo have officially announced the release of Kirby Fighters 2 for Nintendo Switch with the game now available on the eShop!
Choose from a cast 17 of Kirby’s most iconic copy abilities–including the brand-new Wrestler ability–and duke it out to be the last Kirby standing in the brand new Kirby Fighters 2 game. Familiar friends and foes like Bandana Waddle Dee, Meta Knight, King Dedede, Gooey, and Magolor also make an appearance as playable characters.
In the 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. 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.
Up to four players can battle in the game’s multiplayer mode, either on the same system locally, on multiple systems over local wireless, or with online play. With free-for-alls and team battles you’ll be able to customise rules like items, stage hazards and even the ability to come back as a ghost in team battles, even if you get knocked out!
If you play the games Kirby Star Allies or the free-to-play Super Kirby Clash, you will also receive a special rare bonus that corresponds to each title. Kirby Fighters 2 is available now on the Nintendo Switch eShop, requiring 1.1 GB, and priced at ¥1,980. The official website is now open with a full list of characters, copy abilities, and more!
Kirby Fighters 2 is a sequel to the Nintendo 3DS game, Kirby Fighters Deluxe, which originally released in 2014, and which is based on the wild battle mode introduced in Kirby: Triple Deluxe. The Kirby Fighters games contain expanded gameplay features, the ability to play as a team, new arenas, and more as you take your fighting skills to the limit!
