Hey, all, BlackCarrot back again. I'm just gonna talk about my favorite video game character and his new game coming out, Kirby Star Allies. Most notably, I'm gonna talk about what the latest Nintendo Direct has revealed about the game.
Yes, I am aware that Smash Bros. for the Switch is coming out, but I'm gonna wait until more info is out before I talk about that.
Along with all the enemies Kirby can turn into allies in the new game coming out this Friday (3/16) (WHY IN THE SAM HILL IS IT NOT FRIDAY YET?!), you can also unlock playable characters like King Dedede, Meta Knight, and Bandana Waddle Dee. How amazing is that? The fact that you have to unlock them in order to play as them gives priority to play as Kirby's Allies first. It'll be amazing to have these three mix and match elements to their weapons.
King Dedede = Hammer
Meta Knight = Sword
Bandana Waddle Dee = Spear (exclusive to him it seems)
But wait! That's not all! FREE DLC OF EVEN MORE DREAM FRIENDS!
Rick/Coo/Kine combo - All three of these guys playable as one. WOW. That is awesome-sauce right there. A bit of the Wing and Water ability right here. Fire, I think too? Rick can be a Fire-Breathing Hamster afterall.
Marx - Wait, since when this guy a friend? Oh, well, it'll be fun to play as him. He looks to be a Bomb-ability user here.
Gooey - Dang, they're bringing back all the nostalgia, aren't they? We see him use his tongue a-la Whip ability and a Parasol all of his own, right?
The best part is, the First Free DLC with all of them is about a week after the game lets out. ....Wait, the FIRST?! That means they'll be more, right? Well, I wanna give some thoughts on who might make the cut. Let's start off with a fan favorite:
Adeline - This painter girl has been missing since Kirby 64, and we've been waiting for her epic return. With the Artist Ability having a hat very similar to hers, this is the perfect opportunity to bring her back. We can finally bring the Crystal Shard team together again.
Magalor - That little wizard guy from Kirby's Return to Dream Land. How about he returns as a playable character? He's been in bit parts since then, and if Marx is playable, why not him? He'll most likely have the ESP Ability.
Taranza - We fought this spider-wizard in Triple Deluxe and in Team Kirby Clash Deluxe, now how about we play as him? He'd be a perfect fit with the newly introduced Spider Ability.
Suzie - Honestly, she's one of my favorite Kirby characters and my second choice behind Adeline. Her ability would most likely be Spark. Plus, she's freakin' adorable.
Galacta Knight - Am I nuts for waning the most powerful warrior in the galaxy as a playable character? Yes. Would it still be awesome? Yes. Give him moves that not even Sword Ability or Meta Knight have.
Landia - Not the whole four-headed dragon, just one of the heads will do nicely. It is still a shame that there's no Dragon Ability for Kirby, but Landia would make a great addition none the less.
Now, my brother came up with this list and a few other ideas. I only went in detail the ones I think are plausible, but you never know, right? Here they are, and you can debate who will make the cut and who won't.
Lololo + Lalala
Take care, and Don't Forget to Be the G.O.A.T.
