Are you looking forward to Kirby Star Allies?
Kinda. First HD regular Kirby game and it looks really nice, but I don't really see the utility in the ally mechanic. What's it going to do other than further trivialize enemy encounters or basic "you need 1/2/3 allies to get this chest" type stuff? Hoping to be pleasantly surprised but not really expecting to be to be honest.

Hudson Campbell

Seems to be a big part of it this time since you can combine abilities and shit. It would be alright if it was just that and they attacked along with my attacks or something, but I hated the way the AI acted retarded and just did whatever in Superstar. It's the reason I never bought Final Fantasy 13 also. Computer players in a game that doesn't need them just kinda irks me. We'll see though. I still love Kirby so there's a fantastic chance I'm getting this game anyway.

It's the first one I'd be playing though.
What made me love Superstar is that it was the first co-op game I ever played. With two players, it was a masterpiece, but saw no value in having them controlled by a computer. Now that I'm 27 and don't have access to three friends who would be interested in coming over and playing Kirby or huddling around a small Switch screen to do so, I have a feeling the bots are gonna bother me. If it had online, which it won't, I would buy five copies.

Not really. It's sad that in a time that the rest of Nintendo seems to be on fire refreshing their IPs to catch the public's excitement and eye, HAL just falls back onto the exact same formula they've been using for 7 years.

Funny enough I always thought it was HAL who would make a move before the Mario or Zelda team did, but they seemed to have fallen into the same rut Gamefreak is in, albeit they actually know how to make a game. The game doesn't tank to single digit FPS every time Kirby sucks up an enemy and transforms.

id seriously recommend planet robobot, its got very similar gameplay but the gimmick of the robobot armor is a lot more fluid and fun than shit like hypernova

James Ross
James Ross

Eh, I think Return to Dreamland was a clear evolution. It brought the whole series full circle.

Triple Deluxe was fine but pushing it, and Planet Robobot came out fast and had a nice fun enough gimmick to let it slide by. Afterwards, they really needed something new. the gimmick of the game is just the return of partners, something that has already popped up multiple times in the series.

At least with Robobot people looked and said "Oh cool robots". With Star Allies people don't say "Oh cool partners", they say "It looks exactly like Return to Dreamland".

Robert Murphy

Ryder Edwards

I'm honestly not. This game looks like nothing worth buying a Switch for. I'll get it when you can pirate Switch games. It's Return to Dreamland 4. More of the same with a gimmick I'm not convinced with. People kept saying it's 64 tier ability mixing but it looks more like Squeak Squad. Tell when you can mix Archer + Hammer, Whip + Sword and Ice + Fire instead of FIRE SWORD, THUNDER WHIP, and ELEMENT WEAPON.

The director just "thought it looked better", but it was probably just because he wanted complete homogeneity and consistency, so it was as obvious and recognizable as possible that it was indeed Meta Knight. Remember he wasn't wearing his normal mask. It's a shame, because I liked the white eyes, it added a bit more mystery to the character and added a bit more magic to his mask.

Jaxson Russell
Jaxson Russell

I don't see how you can see Return to Dram Land as an evolution, what exactly evolved? It has the same formula as Adventure, the same gameplay as Super Star, even simpler multiplayer than Super Star had, and lacks a lot of the good features games like 64 and Squeak Squad had. The most it does is ass 2 more players than Super Star and DL3 had, and add those gimmick super abilities.

Dark Matter is literally a part of Zero. If DM's back, Zero's still alive in some capacity.

I actually don't expect Zero to make a full entrance back into the series until after Kumazaki is replaced. Nothing in the series since then has quite reached the nightmare fuel level that is Zero - he's about on par with Giygas, and Kumazaki has shown no interest in making the series quite that dark. Even Planet Robobot's ending doesn't match up with Zero's origin story.

Jason Williams

I think it looks fantastic. I don't have a big issue with the modern setup of the series, and Star Allies looks like the most mechanic-heavy of the 4 main RtD-era Kirby games. All it needs is a good ability lineup and good ways to incorporate the ability mixing, and it'll be a fantastic entry. Comparisons to Pokemon or New Super Mario Bros I think aren't fair; each of RtD, TD, and PR have a lot of unique charm to them between abilities, mechanics, environments, and even story that differentiate each from the others despite the shared "Super Star gameplay with one main game and Helpers replaced with [Mechanic]" style, although TD also introduced Smash-style evasive options that I think add a lot to the game's bosses; you really feel it playing Team Kirby Clash Deluxe too, since that game is 100% bosses.

I do think switching things up will do the franchise well, but I also think a mainline Kirby game in this style early in the Switch's life with a new variety coming out later on isn't a bad way to go about it since RtD was the last main console Kirby.

These Shakurel gatchas or whatever are fucking hilarious though. I actually really want the Dedede and Whispy.

Zero's origin story
fucking what now?

Ethan Perez
Ethan Perez

Okay.

First is that Sakurai, although the original 'creator', was not the one who actually truly defined the setting. In fact, Kirby is more of a multi-creators creation, with Miyamoto having quite a bit of a hand in the creation of the character. The one who truly defined the setting though was Shimomura, who took over the games when Sakurai lost interest (which was *very* early ; after Kirby Adventure, the second game in the serie). Sakurai then worked on side-games only (Super Star was originally a side-game, not a main game).

The big problem is that after Kirby 64 and Kirby Nightmare in Dreamland, Shimomura died in a car accident*, leaving the serie without a 'head'. Shimomura was the one who created most of the cast, introduced Zero and the Dark Matters, defined the light/dark contrast of the setting, and gave basic characterization to the characters (likewise, notice the contrast between the self-aware borderline parody-like portrayal of Kirby in the early Sakurai games and his portrayal in, say, Dreamland 3).
*Supposedly this isn't true.

Anthony Butler
Anthony Butler

Still better than Funko pops.

Adrian Diaz
Adrian Diaz

After he died, the serie was thrown into the hands of random companies who then decided to copy and emulate the most popular entry in the serie instead of actually using the setting. This meant emulating Super Star... despite Super Star being extremely simplified and personality-less compared to the main games. And this led to the big crash in creativity in the serie as every game became an emulation of Super Star (notice Kirby stopped evolving once Shimomura died ; it took them 6+ games to even update Kirby's sprites).

A big part of the changes is that with Shimomura gone, the Dark Matters were mostly relegated to the background while Zero was watered down ; her symbolism (with the blood) was removed and she was given a bunch of 'semi' appearances through the serie. Likewise, instead of using the full cast of characters, the cast was reduced to just Kirby and Meta Knight (with Dedede thrown in) and the setting was reduced from Pop Star and the solar system to just Dreamland again.

Evan Jenkins
Evan Jenkins

The big question is where in the fuck is Nightmare?

He's the one that's been summoning all the boss souls during the True Arenas or final boss areas. There's a reason they all follow his distinct color pallet and star pattern.

And why wasn't he or Star Dream able to actually clone/resummon Dark Matter properly?

Matthew Ortiz

Cameron Garcia
Cameron Garcia

With Kirby Super Star Ultra, Kirby Mass Attack, and Kirby Return to Dreamland, it appears that the serie finally got a new permanent dev team at the helm and is starting to reverse the decay that begun in the GBA period. But the franchise is unfortunately still very heavily 'Super Star-ized' and stuck in the past, as you mentionned with Magolor (and also with how the abilities copy the insanely game-breaking and flashy Super Star ones instead of going for the more original and situational combos and mechanics of past main games).

Frankly, I know that many like Super Star for being fast-paced and really flashy but I always found it to be quite shallow in terms of gameplay and rather personality-less. I find myself prefering vastly the Shimomura era games and hope the games will revert to trying to expand the setting, atmosphere, and mechanics again instead of aping Super Star endlessly.

Xavier Ortiz
Xavier Ortiz

They have always had story, though. RtDL didn't even have the level skit cutscenes that 64 had.

Joshua Morales
Joshua Morales

The big point and why I liked the Shimomura games is because, although they were still simple plot-wise, there was a very strong emphasis on cuteness vs darkness and light/dark contrasts, with some very nice symbolism regarding Zero. It also help that the games were on the more serious side.

Kirby, as portrayed in the Shimomura games, is a young adult (not a child) and stand up to the various threats to his world because of empathy (and not because he's a "Star Warrior" or some kind of destined hero). Likewise, one primary reason I like Zero so much is that in contrast to other Kirby villains, including Marx, Zero is not merely deeply evil but is so in a serious way not unlike Giygas and Porky from the Mother serie, who are some of the most beloved villains not just among kid-friendly settings but in all of video gaming and with good reason.

Andrew Lee

Well, it kind of just uses what DL3 already had instead of being base broom.

Ayden King
Ayden King

Zero can't feel positive emotion, so he's always lonely and without friends. This doesn't make him mad or sad or anything, he's just always lonely.

Initially, he thought that possession was the same as friendship, and so he had Dark Matter try to possess people during DL2. That didn't work so well and Kirby sent his ass home packing.

During DL3, he tried again, thinking about the same thing. Kirby did a similar thing this time, but instead of using a sword he used the power of positive emotions to hurt Zero, and it hurt Zero a LOT - Zero is physically pained by interacting with positive emotion, but that's not what Zero wants to have happen.

DL64 comes around, Zero knows possession isn't friendship, but he wants to possess everyone so they feel what he feels (which is pretty much nothing), so that he might not be so alone anymore. Same story with Kirby kicking his ass again.

He's not on par with Giegue for fucked-upery, but he's definitely one of the sadder Nintendo villains.

Hunter Perez

Blake Morgan

I feel that the sheer horror of how badly Zero outsmarted you and made your entire quest futile in Kirby 64's bad ending is a far bigger punch and a far more effective proof of Zero's cunning than Marx's gloating after football tackling Kirby in front of Nova. The fact that Zero never bother to speak to Kirby and is so extreme in her methods make her far scarier and effective in my opinion as it also, in a way, showcase her contempt for Kirby (as she doesn't even regard him highly enough to bother gloating).

Another example is how Zero responded to Dark Matter's failure in Dreamland 2 by taking up a battleship (the Hyper Zone) and ramming the barrier that Kirby had created at the end of Dreamland 2 before proceeding to basically tear the life out of Pop Star, enslaving everyone and beginning to assimilate the entire planet leaving only tiny pockets of survivors over the planet's surface, the game involving Kirby helping the survivors in each stage and booting out the Dark Matters out of his home, part by part. Despite not saying a word, I felt that Zero's glare at Kirby from inside the Hyper Zone after making a mess out of his homeworld established her in a far more effective way than Yin-Yarn or Marx's gloating, the main point being that while other villains spoke about being evil, Zero simply *is* evil.

About Shimomura? Someone looked him up, really took their time with it and found out he just left HAL afterward. There are a lot of Shinichi Shimomuras out there, so it's unknown if he died or just resigned.

I was just looking for this post in the archives.

Asher Torres
Asher Torres

The original post wasn't an english speaker, and technically O2 is the creator of Dark Matter. It could be genderless/asexual.

The symbolism behind Zero (before she got watered down) was extremely nice too, with her tears of blood representing her infinite, all-consuming hatred of all living things and her white color representing how she is such total darkness that she loop back into 'nothingness'. The very name is significative. And of course, there is her second appearance as a fallen angel, one of the most impressive and iconic bosses in the serie (with a matching battle theme).

All of this while portraying Kirby as genuinely innocent and empathic and with a cast that was definitely geared more toward the friendly, cute side than Meta Knight's rather hit-and-miss emphasis on coolness.

It made for a very interesting and frankly, unique contrast as Zero and the Dark Matters were not merely the villains, they were the outright antithesis of the setting ; there is a reason why the conflict between Kirby and Zero is often compared to Ness's own struggle against Giygas. The contrast is similar, in a way. And it is one that should have been embrassed in my opinion ; most series either choose to be completely cute or completely dark. I found that the contrast made the Kirby serie feel much more unique, fresh, and magical.

Japanese manual to be exact. A lot of backstory got lost in translation.

I find myself really disappointed when games like Squeak Squad and Epic Yawn abandonned this route to go for the generic cute 'for toddlers' atmosphere (Epic Yawn was especially bad, with Yin-Yarn being so incompetent and harmless he has no idea what to do with the lands he conquer). At times, I felt that those games felt like parodies even (especially Squeak Squad and its portrayal of Kirby as a mindless glouton who doesn't even notice anything around him). In short, I wish the serie would be not unlike the Mother serie once more (which I believe anyone should try at least once).

In a way, I guess I'm part of the minority as I prefer the more contrasting, in-depth entries to the faster-paced, simpler 'flashy' entries. But still, I indeed wish they'd realize that Kirby is more than just about being cute and that they'd, if not expand the plot, at least bring back the contrast that used to define it back then.

/autism, etc.

Fair enough.

HAL toyed with the idea back when they were trying to make a Gamecube Kirby game.
They've been experimenting with the idea again with 3D Rumble/Blowout Blast (basic gameplay) and Kirby Battle Royale (Copy Abilities), but it remains to be seen if it will ever go beyond spinoff material.

Charles Evans
Charles Evans

My ideal full 3D Kirby game
No run button, analog movement
-Move the camera wherever you want to
For powers, each unused face button uses different attacks for multi-move abilities to translate to 3D
-Limited flight like 64 and Air Ride
Levels are designed both vertically and horizontally with flight in mind, they should be big playgrounds with plenty to accomplish, branches, and a few "end" points
-Some returning locations. DL1/2/3's, KA's, and SS's locations should be the template of bringing Dream Land to life
KDL3-tier and Epic Yarn-tier side/background characters that behave like NPCs in OoT or Shenmue, to make the word feel alive and to open up side-goal potential. Kirby's world is full of cute characters, it would be nice to have some interaction with them
-Dedede, Meta Knight, and DL1 bosses can be found and fought/interacted with in the game if you know where to look, but focus on new characters and new villains.
Kirby's color scheme changes with certain powers
-Multi-move abilities
The original 3 DL2 friends with Kirby's multi-move powers
-Riding Rick grants quicker running, immunity to slippery surfaces, and wall-jumps, but you're a bigger target with less precise attacks
Riding Coo grants maneuverability in the air, and you can go higher and stay in the air longer, but it's harder to master the controls and again you're a bigger target. Slower than Kirby on the ground.
-Kine makes swimming fast and easy, his powers are strong, but he's clumsy and weaker on land. Jumps well enough though
Not a huge amount of copy abilities, avoiding redundant ones, but the ones that are in the game can be leveled up several times as you progress and each power is versatile (kinda like a certain other game)
-Bonus hats/weapons, decorations, color spray cans, and Gooey can be found in treasure chests throughout the game.
Art/atmosphere somewhere between Kirby's Adventure, Kirby's Dream Land 3, and Kirby Super Star

Kirby is, in my opinion, quite Taoist in essence-- Tao, meaning he embodies many of the traits of the ancient Chinese Way. For example, in his modest appearance, Kirby is small, pink, and always wears a happy face (disregarding American Box-arts). His cute exterior masks his true inner potential and ferocious skills/appetite- much like how a true master of martial arts does not go around starting fights, both paths are the key to a long, happy life. He is an entity composed of opposite energies and can produce the Five Elements: Kirby can be cold as ice, hot as fire, quick as lightning, still as stone, soft as a cloud- or sharp as needles. One of Kirby's most famous skills is the ability to inhale enemies and their attacks, and either copy them, or spit them back out as stars. This technique is certainly very similar to TaiChi, where the opponent's force is used against them. The way Kirby gains abilities can be thought of as the potential each of us has within ourselves- we have the chi to become anything we set our minds to, with proper direction and diligence. Kirby is round and simple- a symbolic representation of the cycle of life and the genuine nature of all things. Kirby has good morals (De), always helping those who come to him in need, and often making friends, going so far as to convert former enemies into friends through pure will and good-character. Finally, both he and Dedede know the value of Wu Wei: despite his fame and power, Kirby prefers to live the lazy lifestyle in the amazingly peaceful Dream Land, where the King rules by doing absolutely nothing. Yes, Kirby's world is full of valuable lessons we can all apply to ourselves, if one is willing to delve deeper than the surface of this subtly philosophical series.

It made the Super Star gameplay, more noticeably its single ability multiple moveset, a mainstay as opposed to the last new Kirby game that was Squeak Squad. Amazing Mirror and Squeak Squad used the Nightmare in Dreamland engine, which had Kirby lose his ability in one hit and with most copy ability having a single move. Super Star Ultra helped bring back interest in regards to how he was played which was very different compared to the previous titles and Return to Dreamland was an entire new adventure using Super Star's gameplay.

Waddle Doo is a state of enlightenment, all Waddle Dee's have latent powers given to them by their creator and deity Kracko. Some are created to have full access to their abilities from the start of their lives, others are created as Waddle Dees, who are usually lazy and clumsy, but also learn the meaning of hard work and in doing so can accomplish greater feats than their enlightened brothers tend to accomplish.

So let's discuss this disappointment:
People consider this thing a rogue Dark Matterlet apparently. I say otherwise.
Has a lamer version of Miracle Matter's elemental powers
Named Dark Zero in Japan
Has the colored eyeball, a trait exclusive to Zero and Zero Two (Dark Matter usually has a colored/different iris, but the sclera is still white)
The Japanese guidebook says it has an "unknown connection" to Zero, but says the same about Zero Two
Your thoughts?

Yeah, compare Castle Dedede there to the castle from Triple Deluxe's intro.

Dark Nebula will be the villain of Star Allies. It'll be all about taking what's seen as the lamest and least interesting Kirby villain, and doing something fun with him. Unlike Dark Matter or Zero, Dark Nebula gives those he possesses a purple coloration and a dark aura. The bosses in Star Allies have that. He possesses those bosses because he's not very powerful himself. In the game, we'll see his backstory, characterization, motivation and hints at the relationship he had with a young Dedede.

But Squeak Squad's was even lamer. Three elemental swords and something else I might be missing because they were that insignificant.
Even then Buster Sword and Double Lightsaber > Squeak Squad's swords

Nothing directly stated, but it's generally thought to be a mirror version of Zero or Dark Matter. It can arguably be considered an equel of Nightmare's orb form, but Nightmare's orb didn't have an eye or control over anything external (Dark Matter for Zero, Mirrors for Dark Mind) Shadow Dedede having Dark Matter-Possessed Dedede's abilities and King D-Mind in general from Team Kirby Clash Deluxe both add fuel to the theories

He's presented in a masculine way. He had very masculine actions and mannerisms, in Sakurai's concept art, the human model he drew to mimic Kirby's actions was male.

Kirby's on Popstar.

TIME TO BLOW UP POPSTAR

In order to build a time machine to go back and convince the developers to stop fucking around, we need some resources.

LOTS of resources.

Popstar has resources.

We can collect resources, but not when Popstar is whole.

TIME TO BLOW UP POPSTAR

Kirby's too settled in on Popstar to have a proper series that isn't slice of life or based on Adventure.

In order to have Kirby actually have a proper story, we'd need to shake things up.

You know what'd shake things up?

BLOWING UP POPSTAR

Only Kirby things that are on or close to Popstar get into Smash.

Dark Matter is currently not even CLOSE to Popstar, he's like lost in space or something after Robobot.

We have to get him close to Popstar.

But he's lost. But if we had a beacon, he'd stop being lost and get to Popstar.

You know what would make a good beacon? A blown up planet.

You know what planet's close to Popstar? Popstar.

Nothing major happens in 4-3, but there's some major things you probably won't want spoiled near the end of the game and post game.

OH, but what I can tell you, is to make sure to pause the game during every boss fight including all their phases. ALL of them.

It's not bad because it's 3D, the gameplay and world design is actually very good. The repetitive forced collectables shit is what kills it.

No, only Kirby does.
Well, Gooey does too, but he's not the same species.
Also debatable Rick and TAC, but again they're not the same species as Kirby and Meta Knight.

Michael Wright
Michael Wright

If Meta Knight doesn't, why does keeby?

Is copying a special kirby thing, or a species thing?

Carter Allen
Carter Allen

TAC is different, in that he actually just disguises himself as the other enemy.

No one knows what the fuck happened with Rick though, since he IS the one that swallows the enemy.

Ryan Rivera
Ryan Rivera

If Kirby ever gets Wings like Meta and Galacta, they're definitely going to be butterfly wings right?

Cooper Wilson

We don't know if Meta Knight does or doesn't, we've never seen his mouth.

It could even be that he inhaled a Blade or Sword Knight a LONG time ago, and just hasn't given up the power.

After RtD, Triple Deluxe, and Robobot, we've done basically all we can do with the typical Kirby platformer. It's seems like only yesterday we needed a return to form but now we need some overhauls.

Keeby is non-canon.

We've never seen another member of his species copy abilities. It can be assumed that they don't know how, Kirby didn't know how to do it before the Sparkling Stars filled him with so much magic that he momentarily turned bigger than Dedede's castle.

Josiah Campbell

we've done basically all we can do with the typical Kirby platformer

I disagree.

DL2 and DL3 had a much bigger focus on exploration and puzzles than all the adventure style games do. Amazing Mirror, even if it's a little divisive, shock the formula right the fuck up. Even some of the mini-games in SS show more platforming options than just "Point A to Point B while collecting C", like Milky Way Wishes or Metaknight's Revenge.

I do think we need an overhaul from the staleness of Kumazaki's directing style, and I wouldn't be opposed to having different game types (3d adventure, rpg, strategy, etc.) but I do think that Kirby Platformers could still explore a lot of different options without being tied down to the Adventure formula.

My ideal 3D Kirby would honestly just be a cutesy, laid-back version of DMC3 or 4 Dante gameplay. Each ability has a movelist and Kirby can switch between 2-4 abilities at a time. The Arena just becomes Bloody Palace.

/kdlg/ was short-lived but it was actually pretty alright. Nowhere near as good as the pre-RTDL threads, but still pretty fun. It obviously wasn't sustainable given how Kirby threads typically work (dumping fan arts), so it won't happen again. There was a lot of cancer there too though, but it was in the Sup Forums threads too at that time.

Jason Fisher
Jason Fisher

Bloody Palace equivalent. Go in with a locked-in Ability/Character (maybe Metaknight/Dedede/Bandana/Helpers are playable in the mode) and go through dozens of floors of enemy groups, minibosses, bosses, enemies with minibosses, groups of 2 or 3 minibosses, bosses with enemies, etc. It'd be a challenge beyond even True Arena to make it, especially if the amount of Maxim Tomatoes remains the same or is slightly reduced.

I just really want a Kirby game with DMC elements guys. I think it's a match made in heaven mechanically that nobody has touched on.
