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.
