Kirby Star Allies is bringing in Kirby’s old nemesis Marx as a playable character

Creepy and cute

I’m already pretty much in love with Kirby Star Allies, but if Nintendo is going to keep adding in extra DLC characters for free, I’ll keep playing it. In addition to the already announced Dream Land 2 friend trio, Marx, the villain from Kirby Super Star‘s Milky Way Wishes, is in.

His main kit involves rolling on his ball to dispatch enemies, but he can also sport his final form, which I’ve always referred to as the “Milky Way Bat.” He can also take in elements from other fiends to modify his powers.

Yeah this definitely warrants another playthrough for me as he looks really fun to play. Gooey, another Dream Land 2-3 friend, is also confirmed.
