Kirby for Nintendo Switch (tentative title) is an upcoming game for the Nintendo Switch. It is set to release some time in 2018.

Overview

Kirby for Nintendo Switch is an action platformer, styled after previous games in the main series, greatly resembling Kirby's Return to Dream Land in its art style, but in HD. The central gimmicks of the game appear to be using hearts to befriend certain enemies on the stage to turn them into Helpers in the vain of Kirby Super Star. Collecting certain helpers will allow Kirby to solve various puzzles, and perform combo attacks. In addition, Kirby gains the ability to create combination Copy Abilities, resembling the abilities from both Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards and Kirby: Squeak Squad by absorbing one of his helpers. Helpers also appear to be able to absorb power combos in this way.

Once Helpers are acquired, they can either be controlled by the CPU, or controlled by additional players.

Nothing is yet known about the story, but it is expected to be a main series installment.
