Nintendo announced Kirby’s Dream Buffet, a multiplayer racing game, is releasing later this summer on the Nintendo eShop and at retail. Watch the new trailer above.

Kirby’s Dream Buffet looks like a cross between Mario Kart, Super Monkey Ball, and Fall Guys, set in the world of Wreck-It Ralph’s Sugar Rush.

Through local and online multiplayer, up to four players roll Kirbys through four stages of food-themed obstacle courses. Eating strawberries makes Kirby grow larger. An absolute unit, as the kids say. Bigger Kirbys can knock smaller ones off the stage, and use Kirby’s signature copy abilities for special effects.

The easy-to-understand gameplay is designed for all player ages and skill levels. More information, including release date and pricing, will be revealed soon.

It’s been a big year for the spherical pink hero. Kirby and the Forgotten Land released earlier this year to positive reviews and millions of copies sold.

Kirby’s Dream Buffet is rated E for Everyone.
