The game was released in Japan in January, but North America and Europe don’t see the release until May.
Kirby: Triple Deluxe is a 2.5D platformer which uses the same engine as Kirby’s Return to Dream Land. This time, Kirby can move between the foreground and the background with the use of a trusty Warp Star. It’s not just the titular hero who makes use of the 3DS’s stereoscopic abilities as some enemy attacks will also emanate from the background.
As with every new Kirby game, the gameplay is based around his ability to, urm, swallow. In Triple Deluxe Kirby can eat a rainbow colored-seed known as a Miracle Fruit which transforms him into Hypernova Kirby. This new power-up improves his inhale ability allowing him to inhale extremely large objects such as trains and trees and is used for a series of puzzles in the game.
