New Kirby and the Rainbow Curse trailer, amiibo details, and more


Wear a King Dedede or Meta Knight mask

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse is out in a couple months, so Nintendo is starting up the hype train for the clay puffball's adventure. We had previously heard that multiplayer would involve additional players platforming as Waddle Dee. The Japanese trailer above shows that in action. I can picture players coming up with custom games like monkey in the middle, using Kirby as the ball.

Other details shown in the trailer are the clay rainbow twist's multiple uses; in addition to providing the primary means of Kirby's locomotion, it is also used to block lavafalls or add connections for a gondola cable.

Perhaps the most pertinent information comes at the very end of the video. Given the fervor surrounding amiibogeddon, there is a good chance that the Kirby, Meta Knight, and King Dedede amiibo will be in high demand. According to some tweets collected by GoNintendo, the translation is that the Kirby amiibo will allow a star dash at any time, the Meta Knight amiibo will confer a higher attack stat, and the Dedede amiibo provides increased health.
