E3 08: New Kirby Super Star Ultra info, dated for release

Kirby Super Star is my favorite Kirby game of all time, and one of my favorite games on the Super Nintendo. Understandably, I was very stoked when I stumbled upon news of HAL Laboratory’s DS remake entitled Kirby Super Star Ultra last year. Now, thanks to the magic of E3, we have plenty of new screens and info on what’s sure to be the best remake ever. There’s also a short trailer showing the game in action after the jump.

First off, all the original adventures will be making return appearances while sporting new cinematics and updated graphics. Based on what’s in the attached screens everything is looking very bright, crisp, and colorful. There is also mention of brand new adventures, but no specifics on what they’ll contain or how many there will be.

There will also be an increased focus on multiplayer in Super Star Ultra. Three new touch-screen controlled minigames will be added that up to four players can play via the DS’ Download Play: Kirby Card Swipe, Kirby on the Draw, and Snack Tracks. Kirby will also have a new ability to create helper monsters from abilities he’s copied. These can be controlled by another player or the CPU.

Finally, we’re also given a release date: September 22! Only a little more than two months to go! Are you as ridiculously excited for this game as I am?
