New Kirby platformer coming to 3DS in 2014

Kirby's coming back as his normal pink puffball self in a 3DS game next year. Nintendo revealed the untitled platformer in its Nintendo Direct today, Kirby's first portable game since Kirby Mass Attack in late 2011.

Kirby jumps from plane to plane (the spatial kind, not the flying kind) in the new 3D-riffic gameplay, stealing powers from classic enemies like Knuckle Joe and Blade Knight. He has a superpowered new suction move which lets him clear the screen, too.

We'll let you know when we hear more about Kirby's new adventure.

    I was hoping for a console version, but handheld sounds better.

    Looks pretty cool. Good old fun kirby action. Graphics are pretty sharp as well.

    Hey, atleast it looks visually appealing unlike a certain claymation Dinosaur

    Not really, Mass Attack looks way more appealing than this. This isn't even an unique style like canvas curse or anything, it's pretty much what the N64 Kirby game looked like, but with more polygons.

    Wonder what they will do with this one, considering the gimmicks in past kirby's I like what their trying for the 3D Effect
