When a mysterious being kidnaps King Dedede atop a giant Dreamstalk, only Kirby can save the day! Jump from the foreground to the background in dynamic 3D side-scrolling environments while using new and returning copy abilities to defeat enemies. Duke it out in Kirby Fighters, a fierce 4-player* battle mode where you fight using a chosen ability like Sword or Ninja. The last Kirby standing reigns supreme. Whether you’re new to Kirby or an old fan, the Kirby: Triple Deluxe game offers a triple threat—action, adventure, and a battle mode!

Some of the new and returning abilities in the game include Archer which allows Kirby to wield a bow to strike silently from a distance, Beetle in which Kirby grabs foes with his horn and slams them into the ground. There is also Fire where Kirby can roll into a fireball and scorch through the air and Sword where Kirby dons a green cap and wields a sword. Remind you of anyone?
