Nintendo Unveils New Kirby Game at E3 2017, Coming 2018

"HIIIIIIIII"

We're at E3 2017 covering the year's biggest gaming event. Be sure to check out all our coverage on our E3 2017 hub!

Nintendo sure loves stuffing our faces with Kirby games, and you know what? We not going to complain. Not one bit. So break out the cake, Cool Whip, and Strawberries: Kirby's back.

Simply going under the working title of "Kirby", the new Switch title looks to be a side-scrolling return to classic Kirby. Suck up enemies and steal their powers all in the name of pure destruction. One of the things the trailer advertises appears to be 4-player co-op.

(Working Title) Kirby on the Switch will be available sometime in 2018
