Seemingly out of nowhere, it looks like Kirby is getting a new game for the Nintendo Switch with Kirby’s Dream Buffet, a brand new multiplayer game that offers you and your friends the ‘Fall Guys’ experience, but in cute, round blob form.
Check out the trailer here:
So, instead of your usual space suits, you get treated to Kirby and his same-shaped friends of various colors. Given it’s pretty much a food-based extravaganza, the puzzles and challenges all take place on trippy, magical banquet arrangements. The cuteness overload and potential test of friendship check out.
The game features an online mode where each colorful stage gives way to four players–plus what seems like additional AI. It’s a very Nintendo experience, from what we see in the trailer.
Nintendo describes the game’s premise as:
Roll through a smorgasbord of food-themed stages in 4 rounds of 4-player* fun as Kirby…who seems rounder than usual? Race through delicious obstacle courses to collect strawberries as Kirby grows. Then, turn the tides in the final round—a fruity fight atop a floating platform.
- Roll through delicious, food-themed obstacle courses in 4-player matches
- Collect strawberries to grow bigger and prepare for the final battle
As of now, Kirby’s Dream Buffet has no official price and no official date of release. Summer 2022 is the biggest lead we have so far.
