If you're a Kirby enthusiast, you'll still probably really enjoy it, and it's a great game to buy for your kids or younger family members to play with them, but it's lacking in those big surprises and left-field unique elements that characterize Kirby at its best. Kirby Star Allies is available now for Nintendo Switch. You can watch a trailer for the game down below:
All in all, Kirby Star Allies is a fun, relaxing game that does a good job of showing off what makes the main Kirby series so great. The slow pace, diverse powers, beautiful environments, adorable enemy designs, and light difficulty ensure that this is an enjoyable ride from start to finish. But with that being said, there’s a lingering sense that the developer was a little too keen to play this one safe, and the lack of new ideas may come as a disappointment to series veterans.
Kirby’s first outing on the Switch is a step down from his 3DS adventures. While its allies system isn’t as complex as I would have liked, complexity is not really what Kirby players are looking for. It’s hard to compete in the joy department on a system that already has Super Mario Odyssey, but Kirby Star Allies shares that good feeling throughout. Playing the game just makes you smile. It’s a great choice to share with friends even if they’re not normal gamers.
