This year marks the 25th anniversary of Kirby, so Nintendo is releasing three new Kirby titles for 3DS this year. The second of these titles is Kirby’s Blowout Blast, which launched today. To celebrate this launch, Nintendo released a brand new trailer for the game that give an overview of the title’s features.
For those who don’t know, Blowout Blast was previously featured as part of last year’s Kirby: Planet Robobot as a mini-game, and is now getting its own, more fleshed out release, much like what Nintendo did with standalone releases of the mini-games from Kirby: Triple Deluxe. As an added bonus, those who have Planet Robobot save data on their 3DS will receive special statues early on in game, and gain access to some special music.
In Kirby’s Blowout Blast, players make their way through over 25 large 3D stages under a time limit. Throughout the stage, players can suck in enemies, aim, and shoot them out as Star Bullets, which damage other foes. If Kirby sucks in larger enemies, he can then unleash a larger and more powerful Blaster Bullet to kill enemies. At the end of each stage, players must face one of many famous bosses from the Kirby series, such as Kracko, Lololo & Lalala, and King Dedede.
At the end of each stage, players will get a trophy based off their score. If a players gets a gold trophy in every stage, they will unlock harder EX stages to play through. Using Kirby series amiibo will erect an in-game statue of that character and give players a new music track to collect.
You can watch the trailer below. Kirby’s Blowout Blast is now available on 3DS for $6.99.
