Earlier today we got our first chance since the chaos of E3 to actually sit down and play Kirby Mass Attack in a quiet room at Nintendo's offices. If you haven't yet made the plunge and invested in a 3DS, you'll be pleased to hear that Mass Attack comes out for plain ol' DS this September and looks great from what we've seen so far. The gameplay is quite a departure from the classic Kirby we know and love though...
The insatiable puffball Kirbys back once again, but his second DS outing looks to play more like his traditional games than last year's stylus-heavy Canvas Curse. You'll guide the pink one through Dreamland in search of stolen treasure and, of course, a host of new powers to ingest.
Probably the coolest thing about Squeak Squad is its power-up system. You can now use the touch screen (which displays the inside of Kirbys stomach) to mix items that he's inhaled to form new, more effective
Of all Nintendo’s characters, Kirby is the most divisive. Mario, bless his blue dungarees, could appear in a thousand rubbish spin-offs and we’d still love him.
