A New Kirby Announced...But Do We Want It?

A New Kirby Announced...But Do We Want It?

Nintendo announced an upcoming Kirby title for the 3DS during the Nintendo Direct presentation today.

The trailer shows the classic Kirby side-scrolling action which involves sucking in enemies and using their powers to progress through the level.

And that's just it.

There seems to be little to draw players in. And it's surprising with the last few Kirby releases, which have featured clever and interesting concepts. Kirby: Mass Attack and Kirby's Epic Yarn both tossed out traditional Kirby gameplay and replaced it with a unique flair.

This teaser trailer is very similar to Nightmare in Dreamland and and The Amazing Mirror. At this point, the community should expect more innovation and flair from Nintendo; a company that is struggling to sell its newest home console.

The title comes alongside other updates shown during the Nintendo Direct presentation. You can watch the new trailer for Kirby here.

      Hi stealth, I am the writer for this story and the trailer showed enough gameplay to allow fair speculation. A trailer is supposed to grab people in and show them why they should buy the game. This trailer showed nothing of that. As for the Nintendo comment, even if it is for the 3DS, it is just another example of Nintendo's struggle to innovate many of their old franchises.

        A trailer is just supposed to show you a glimpse. Especially the first one.

        How Nintendo operates is the first trailer is to tell you its here. The second trailer blows you away.

        They are constantly innovating there franchises but perphaps we should not fight 🙂
