In addition to all of the game’s fan favorite copy abilities returning, the Deluxe edition will feature a new copy ability: mecha. This allows Kirby to take on a mechanized appearance, and attain all the skills that come with that. The remake will also allow up to four players to play both the main game and all the various sub-games locally. Included in these sub-games are a few new titles, like Magolor’s Tome Trackers, as well as popular ones from the original game, including Samurai Kirby.
Kirby’s Return to Dream Land is available to pre-order through the Nintendo Switch e-Shop for $60 USD.
