Kirby: Triple Deluxe, known as 星のカービィ トリプルデラックス (Hoshi no Kābī Toripuru Derakkusu) in Japan, is a game for the Nintendo 3DS. It is the tenth main series Kirby game (not counting remakes), and the first Kirby game to be released for the 3DS system. It was released on January 11, 2014 in Japan, on April 17, 2014 in South Korea, on May 2, 2014 in North America, and on May 16, 2014 in Europe and Australia.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe is a 2.5-D platformer with a special mechanic that allows Kirby and other characters to change to and interact with different planes, thus adding limited three-dimensional interactivity to the gameplay. In addition, the game makes use of the 3DS's built-in motion controls for certain gameplay elements, including Tilt Bowls, 3-D Tilt Missiles, and Tilt Gondolas. Finally, the game marks the debut (and only) appearance of the Hypernova ability, which drastically enhances the power and reach of Kirby's signature Inhale.

This title also heavily features King Dedede, giving him his own Sub-Game and Extra Mode, as well as involving him prominently in the main story.

Story

The main Story Mode of Kirby: Triple Deluxe takes place in the sky-bound kingdom of Floralia. Kirby is brought up to this kingdom when a giant plant called the Dreamstalk lifts his house into the air. Castle Dedede is also lifted up, from which a strange arachnid mage named Taranza is seen kidnapping its king. Kirby gives chase after them through the six major islands of Floralia, dealing with many large enemies which Taranza summons or aggravates to slow Kirby down. As Kirby ascends, he collects Sun Stones to grow the Dreamstalk further, giving him a bridge to each island in turn. He also encounters a number of Miracle Fruit which grant him the powerful Hypernova ability when consumed. At the highest island - Royal Road - Kirby finds and frees a number of imprisoned flower sprites who are known as the People of the Sky.

Once Kirby finally catches up to Taranza at the palace atop Royal Road, the arachnid mage explains how it was his objective to capture the hero of Dream Land in order to stop him messing up his and his queen's plans for domination. He then uses his magic to take control of King Dedede and have him fight Kirby while wearing a familiar mask. Kirby defeats Dedede and breaks the spell, making it clear who the real hero of Dream Land actually is. At this realization, Taranza calls upon Queen Sectonia to save him, but the furious queen instead swats him away for his failures. From there, Kirby and the queen do battle.

Queen Sectonia is overpowered by Kirby, and forced to retreat, using her magic to merge with the Dreamstalk, thus beginning the process of strangling Floralia and the rest of planet Popstar of all its energy. King Dedede regains consciousness, and with the help of the freed People of the Sky, launches Kirby toward the main stalk of the new Flowered Queen Sectonia. They fight until the sun comes up, but just as Kirby is about to seize victory, the Queen ensnares him with a vine and begins to squeeze him. At this, King Dedede and Taranza (with a change of heart) come to Kirby's rescue, freeing him and giving him one more Miracle Fruit to use against the queen. Kirby finishes off Queen Sectonia by inhaling her giant laser blast, and spitting it back out at her, destroying her utterly. This done, Kirby is ferried back home by the People of the Sky, and the Dreamstalk is purified, going into full bloom and becoming a permanent fixture of Dream Land.

Gameplay

The Goal Game.

This game plays very similarly to its predecessor, Kirby's Return to Dream Land. It even has several of the same items, such as the Key. It introduces a new move, the Dodge. This is activated by pressing left or right while using the Guard, or pressing L or R in midair to perform an Air Dodge. This move isn't usually necessary in the Main Game, and is only truly useful in Kirby Fighters. However, the main new gameplay element is the foreground and background.

In Kirby: Triple Deluxe Kirby is no longer limited to just one path. He is required to use special 3-D Warpstars to move from the foreground to the background, and vice versa. While in one plane the player can see items and enemies in the other. Sometimes Kirby even gains weapons that let him directly attack the enemies in the other plane, such as the 3-D Laser Bar, and the 3-D Helmet Cannon. The enemies can do the same, with some enemies such as Sir Kibble and Spynum able to launch their projectiles into the other plane. Enemies such as Waddle Dee and Chip can jump from one plane to the other to ambush Kirby. There are also many obstacles that attack Kirby from the background or foreground, such as boulders, mineral pillars, trees, and springy hands. There are also several cases where Kirby may get launched forward and hit the screen, sliding downward afterwards. This doesn't necessarily cost Kirby a life, but it will always make him lose his Copy Ability, if he had one.

The game contains many collectibles. A primary example are the Keychains. They are 256 of these scattered throughout the levels. Each one depicts a pixelated sprite of an enemy, item, or character from the previous main path Kirby games (except Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, as the game uses 3D models). When you pick up a Keychain in one of the levels, the item on it will be revealed after the Goal Game. The image you get is random, and it is possible to get the same Keychain on an image twice or more. There are also Rare Golden Keychains. These are found in a fixed location, one in each level. They are not random. The other collectibles are the Sun Stones, which serve a similar function to the Energy Spheres from Kirby's Return to Dream Land. There are a set amount of Sun Stones in each level and 100 available total. Most are hidden in secret rooms, some are in plain sight, others are hidden in chests. A certain amount of these are required to unlock the Boss Stage. If you collect all the Sun Stones in a level you will unlock a bonus EX level. These stages are slightly longer, but contain few Sun Stones, and end with a battle against a DX Mid-Boss. There are also Grand Sun Stones, that are obtained after defeating the boss of a level. These give access to the next level, and it is necessary to collect all five of them. If Kirby collects all 100 Sun Stones, he will be rewarded with a Rare Queen Sectonia Keychain.

This game is the first to feature Gyro-Controls. This has the player tilting the 3DS system to accomplish tasks. These may involve tilting a bowl of water, setting the direction for a cannon to fire, or traveling over a pit in a gondola, and are usually required to get a Keychain. There is also a Game Mode that allows the player to play as King Dedede. His controls are also mostly the same as in Kirby's Return to Dream Land, but now he can create a shock-wave with his hammer at full health, and launch a cutting beam from his hammer when charged.

Soundtrack

Jukebox

The Jukebox (サウンドルーム Sound Room in the Japanese version) serves as the Sound Test of Kirby: Triple Deluxe. When a soundtrack is playing, the musical notes will change the color to indicate its composer:

This way of indicating the track credit would be later used in Kirby: Planet Robobot and Kirby Star Allies.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe Soundtrack CD

Kirby: Triple Deluxe is one of the very few games in the series that has its original soundtrack CD released in English. (Many Kirby original soundtracks are released only in Japan and thus don't have official English track titles.)

The English soundtrack CD is titled Kirby: Triple Deluxe Soundtrack, available (but not for sale) through Club Nintendo in Europe and Australia for the exchange of 2000 stars. Same with the Japanese release, however, the CD only includes 46 tracks from the game and 3 bonus tracks.

The following lists all tracks in Kirby: Triple Deluxe Soundtrack CD, with their English and Japanese titles.

Trivia

Spoilers! Notice: Stop right there, stubby little pink thing!
Spoilers abound! If you do not wish to read them, skip ahead to the next heading or find a different article.
  • The title of 'Triple Deluxe' has multiple meanings. It can be compressed to '3D' which emphasizes the 3-D elements of the game, but it could also be read as 'DDD', which can help to explain King Dedede's prominence in the game.
  • If the first letter of each level is put together, it spells out FLOWERED (Fine Field, Lollipop Land, Old Odyssey, Wild World, Endless Explosions, Royal Road, Eternal Dreamland). This is a reference to the final boss, Queen Sectonia, who becomes a giant flower after merging herself with the Dreamstalk (effectively becoming "FLOWERED"). This level first letter easter egg is similar to Kirby's Adventure, Kirby: Canvas Curse, Kirby's Return to Dream Land, Kirby: Planet Robobot and Kirby Star Allies.
  • This game was first to have interactable onscreen HUD display: when Hypernova Kirby inhales a boss, its health gauge "peels" off before being inhaled when emptied; breaking the fourth wall.
  • The Puzzle Swap mode in Streetpass Mii Plaza , a game packaged digitally with a system in the 3DS family, contains a puzzle based on Kirby: Triple Deluxe, which, once completed, shows a 3D animation of Kirby running through a medley of level themes from said game (while switching between foreground and background) until he comes across a Miracle Fruit. He jumps into it, and the animation loops. By moving the camera around, hidden Keychains can be found, like a Bandana Waddle Dee or Meta Knight keychain.
