on March 3, 2016 5:54 PM

During the latest Nintendo Direct broadcast, Nintendo announced a brand new 3DS exclusive bringing back the Kirby franchise: Kirby Planet Robobot.

Invaders have mechanized dreamland, and Kirby takes control of an exoskeleton named Robobot armor to fight them.

The Rebobot armor can copy enemy abilities, and use powerful modified versions of them named Modes, also changing form like Kirby as it does. Ten different modes are included in the game.

The game also includes a separate 4-player co-op mode named Team Kirby Clash. Interestingly, this mode will include RPG elements.

amiibos will give special copy-abilities to Kirby in the game, and during the livestream it was mentioned that pretty much any amiibo causes something to happen.

The game will launch on June 10th, and on the same day a new line of Kirby amiibo will launch.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
