Pilot A Robobot Armour And Save Planet Popstar In Kirby: Planet Robobot


Nintendo Australia have announced that Kirby fans will be able to score another dose of the pink hero when Kirby Planet Robobot releases exclusively for Nintendo 3DS on June 11.



In Kirby’s latest platforming adventure, Kirby can now explore Planet Popstar in brand new ways, as he can move scenery, access new areas, and uncover secrets by using the Robobot Armour’s handy Wrench. That’s not all it can do either, as by scanning enemies, it can unleash more powerful versions of some of Kirby’s well-known Copy Abilities, some of which change the platforming action in brand new ways. By analysing an enemy with the “Jet” Scan Spec, Kirby’s Robobot Armour will engage Jet Mode, causing it to fly across the screen in shoot-‘em-up style, while the “Wheel” Scan Spec activates Wheel Mode, turning Kirby’s Robobot Armour into a car that races between the foreground and background.



It would not be a Kirby game without the ability to copy, which is here still and while some classic abilities remain, there are new abilities like throwing pills and attacking with a clipboard as “Doctor” Kirby or even unleashing ESP. You can even scan in amiibo to get even more abilities, scanning in the Smash Bros series Kirby amiibo will turn Kirby into a real fighter.

But that is not all, other Copy Abilities can also be awarded via any currently available amiibo, often bestowing Kirby with an ability based on the character that was tapped. Become “Fire” Kirby with any Mario amiibo, let loose with the Parasol by scanning Princess Peach, send Sparks flying with Robin, or show off your swordplay with one of the other Fire Emblem character amiibo.

There is still even more though, with all new abilities coming in the form of all new amiibo releasing alongside the game.


The Kirby Collection amiibo, consisting of Kirby, King Dedede, Waddle Dee and the mysterious Meta Knight. Tapping the latter three amiibo will grant Kirby a unique ability and a change of costume based on the character scanned, while the new Kirby amiibo will give our hero the UFO ability, allowing him to float in the air indefinitely and unleash powerful Heat Beams on unsuspecting foes. Fans eager to get their hands on this ability can also choose the Kirby: Planet Robobot - amiibo Bundle, which includes a copy of the game and a Kirby Collection amiibo of Kirby.

It’s the rise of the Robobots when Kirby: Planet Robobot unleashes robotic fury on Nintendo 3DS on June 11
