Nintendo has announced the remaster of one of its Wii games: Kirby’s Return to Dream Land. The remaster launches for Switch on February 24, with pre-orders starting today.
As usual for Kirby, it’s a platformer where he can copy enemies’ skills. It will feature several new subgames and at least one new copy option. The game now has a 4-player co-op platform where different players have different Kirby copy skills.
Kirby is experiencing something of a renaissance this year, on his 30th birthday. Nintendo launched Kirby and the Forgotten Land, which sold a respectable 4 million copies as of the last report. They also released Kirby’s Dream Buffet, a parlor game starring multiple Kirby’s. In addition to the new games, Nintendo also launched several older Kirby titles on Nintendo Switch Online.
