During this year’s E3, Nintendo unveiled a trailer for an upcoming, untitled Kirby game for the Nintendo Switch. It looks like a more traditional Kirby platformer than hand-held recent entries. No release date other than 2018 was given.
Despite it being Kirby’s 25th anniversary, it’s been a quiet year for the pink hero. Only two Kirby games have released, both stand-along spin-offs from mini-games found in Planet Robobot. A third spin-off Kirby game is yet untitled but supposed to release later this winter.
The Kirby 25th Anniversary Sale ends August 8.
