Nintendo have seemingly pulled a bit of an oopsie, as they’ve accidentally revealed the existence of Kirby Fighters 2 for the Nintendo Switch. A listing for the game briefly appeared on the Nintendo website before being quickly scrubbed, but that didn’t stop Twitter users like Wario64 from screenshotting the image. Sorry Nintendo, you can’t put the cat back in the bag.


So What Is Kirby Fighters?

Kirby Fighters was a 2D platform fighter that originally launched for the Nintendo 3DS as part of Kirby: Triple Deluxe, a collection of three minigames. Eventually, the success of Kirby Fighters meant that it was spun-off into its own game, Kirby Fighters Deluxe, which was available to download for the 3DS.

In Kirby Fighters, up to four players could battle it out in a last man standing brawl to determine who was the strongest. Players could utilise various copy abilities that the Kirby series has become known for, and there were various stages and items to get to grips with. Honestly, it was Super Smash Bros, but the only star was Kirby. It’s just the way Sakurai intended.


What’s New In Kirby Fighters 2?

The official description, before it was yeeted off the face of the Earth, reads as follows:

Choose from a cast of Kirby’s most iconic copy abilities – including the brand-new Wrestler ability – and duke it out to be the last Kirby standing. Familiar friends and foes like Bandana Waddle Dee and King Dedede also make an appearance as playable characters in the Kirby Fighters 2 game, available exclusively on the Nintendo Switch system.

So we’re getting new characters, a brand new copy ability, and probably some new stages to boot, all for $20. If you’re looking for a bit of cheap multiplayer fun, Kirby Fighters 2 could be a real hit. Now, we just need to wait for Nintendo to announce it.
