Kirby: Planet Robobot is a game in the Kirby series released for the Nintendo 3DS in 2016. It uses the same engine and playstyle as preceding games Kirby: Triple Deluxe and Kirby's Return to Dream Land, and once again incorporates the use of jumping between foreground and background, as Triple Deluxe did.

Story

Spoilers! Notice: Stop right there, stubby little pink thing!

Kirby runs off toward a leg of the ship that took over Pop Star.

A robotic organization known as the Haltmann Works Company has targeted Pop Star for its industrialization purposes. They fly down a giant spaceship roughly the same size as Pop Star to take over, as both King Dedede and Meta Knight try in vain to stop them. Kirby wakes up from under an oak tree to see the damage done, and is tasked with stopping the invaders from completely mechanizing his homeworld.

Kirby busts his way through each area, damaging the five legs that prop up the Haltmann Works Mothership. Along the way, he encounters Susie, Executive Assistant, who antagonizes him both by fighting him directly, and by throwing subdued and/or cloned versions of his friends after him. Once all five legs are down, Kirby enters the ship itself, and battles with the primary villain behind this plot, President Haltmann. In the process, he discovers that all of this was made possible for Haltmann Works by a self-aware supercomputer known as Star Dream. When Haltmann is defeated by Kirby, he attempts to use it to exact revenge, but then Susie betrays him, stealing his means of controlling the computer and causing him to black out. Susie then reveals that she wanted to take control of the computer for herself, but Star Dream then activates by itself and zaps Susie away. At this point, the computer is fully in control, fusing Haltmann's mind and soul with its operating system, and declares that it will erase all of history in order to bring about an age of 'infinite prosperity'.

Begrudgingly, Susie helps Kirby to defeat it by offering him a suit of Robobot Armor. Meta Knight, having been freed by Kirby from the company's clutches, brings the Halberd in as well, and merges it with Kirby's armor in order to take down Star Dream, who turns out to be another variety of Nova. Once it is finally defeated, Pop Star is returned to normal, and Susie leaves Pop Star behind on her own, departing to parts unknown.

Gameplay

Kirby: Planet Robobot plays more-or-less the same as Kirby: Triple Deluxe, as a 2.5-D platformer, with paths in the foreground and background, and levels with stages to complete sequentially. Also as before, Kirby will need to collect a number of special objects in order to unlock the path to the Boss in each level, and/or unlock extra stages. Kirby makes use of his Copy Abilities as usual to solve puzzles and break his way through the enemy forces, many of which are mechanized versions of the usual enemies.

New to this installation, however, is the inclusion of a suit of power armor that Kirby can pilot, called the Robobot Armor. It appears in various points of the stages, and allows Kirby to smash his way through larger obstacles, though it comes with some drawbacks in most instances, the most obvious one being the inability to float indefinitely. The suit is also modular with some of the Copy Abilities, taking on new form and function with each one.

On top of this new mechanic, Planet Robobot features more enemies, new and different items and tools, and new and different Copy Abilities to utilize. It also employs circular pathways in some areas, not seen since Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, and flying shooter sections reminiscent of the endgame for Kirby's Return to Dream Land.

Like in Triple Deluxe, Kirby is able to store certain Food items for later use. These can be improved through the use of StreetPass. Additionally, the game is compatible with amiibo, which allow Kirby to obtain a Copy Ability from one when scanned.

Modes

This game is also compatible with amiibo, coming with its own set as well. Scanning in an amiibo will give Kirby a Copy Ability specific to the amiibo scanned, as well as the home set unlocking special costumes. Scanning the Super Smash Bros. Kirby amiibo will unlock the Smash ability (now called Smash Bros.), and scanning the home series Kirby amiibo will unlock the U.F.O. ability, which is the only easy way to obtain it.

Copy Abilities

Kirby: Planet Robobot features a total of 28 standard Copy Abilities, with three of them being brand new abilities, and four more returning from long absences. Like Kirby's Return to Dream Land and Kirby: Triple Deluxe, these abilities feature extensive move-sets and most offer high versatility. Many of these abilities are compatible with the Robobot Armor.

In addition, Kirby can gain abilities if the player scans in amiibo during regular gameplay. Certain amiibo yield unique abilities or offer different palette swaps.

Main article: Robobot Armor

Introduced in this title is the potent Robobot Armor, which in turn is compatible with various Copy Abilities. The Robobot Armor is obtained by defeating Invader Armor or by finding it in stages. When inside the armor, Kirby becomes much more powerful, but in most cases, loses his ability to hover indefinitely and can no longer fit through tight gaps. Kirby will retain any ability he had before entering the armor and it will not affect the abilities that the armor can acquire. Kirby cannot exit the armor once he enters unless he finds a docking station or exits the stage.

Enemies

Kirby: Planet Robobot carries a majority of its enemies - including their look and behavior - from its predecessor; Kirby: Triple Deluxe. However, the game also adds a large array of new enemies, and brings back many older enemies not featured in Triple Deluxe, with some (such as Simirror) making their first 3-D appearance in this game. True to the mechanized motif of the world in Planet Robobot, many enemies have received mechanical and/or cybernetic augmentations, though these are purely cosmetic. The following tables list each standard enemy in Kirby: Planet Robobot:

Development

Kirby: Planet Robobot was originally planned as a follow up to Kirby: Triple Deluxe, known as Kirby: Triple Deluxe 2. Once it was decided that the game's theme would revolve around mechanization and industrialization, the the name was changed to Kirby: HAGANE (hagane means "steel" in Japanese). The title went through a few more changes, Kirby: Robot Planet, Roborobo Planet, and finally, Planet Robobot. From the finalized title, the Robobot Armor got its name.

Trivia

  • The Japanese release day of April 28th is only one day off the release day for the original Kirby's Dream Land in Japan.
  • This is the first game in the Kirby series where Meta Knight has gauntlets over his gloves, carrying over from his appearance in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U.
    • Likewise, this is also the first game in the Kirby series where Meta Knight can use his Smash Bros. Final Smash, Galaxia Darkness.
  • In keeping with the tradition of having the first letters of each level spell out something, the levels in sequence spell out the word 'PROGRAM', which incidentally, is also the last word of the last level's name.
  • Kirby: Planet Robobot is the first Kirby game whose ROM was leaked before release. It was leaked on April 26, 2016, two days before the game's release in Japan.
