Kirby Battle Royale is a very difficult game to recommend. First of all, there is not a lot of content here. You’ll essentially be playing the same 10 mini-games over and over again. There are some variations, and you’ll be able to use different Kirby’s and boosts to change things up, but ultimately there is a ton of repetition. Having only one save space is absurd, especially for families with multiple gamers, but at least there’s a decent download play option for local multiplayer.
Kirby Battle Royale comes off as a fine, but barebones title overall. Fun can be had, but it’s fleeting, and replay value is very limited. I rather like the idea of a Kirby mini game collection where you can play using various Kirby copy abilities and battle it out amongst friends. While Battle Royale lets you do just that, it feels like a concept or an idea as opposed to a full-fledged game. This is fun to play over a weekend, but not much beyond that.
The Kirby series has been no stranger to interesting spin-off titles over the years but, unfortunately, Kirby Battle Royale is one of his weaker ventures. A batch of modes uneven in quality, fairly basic combat and a repetitive story option make for a pretty forgettable experience when played alone. With a group, however, Kirby Battle Royale can be a silly, fun time albeit a relatively shallow one.
