One of Nintendo’s announcements during the Direct today was that the upcoming Kirby Star Allies won’t be limited to just normal enemies for your multiplayer buddies.
Throughout the base game, you can add King DeDeDe, Metaknight, and Bandana Waddle Dee to your team. Future updates will add more characters, with the first update adding the animal pals from Kirby’s Dreamland, Ricky, Kine, and Coo; Marx from Kirby Super Star; and Gooey from Dream Land 2 and 3.
Future updates will add more characters to the mix.
Kirby Star Allies releases next week on March 16.
