Kirby Star Allies Launch Day Impressions

Kirby Star Allies released today on the Nintendo Switch. Is the game worth your time and money when the Switch is overflowing with eshop goodness every week? Read on to find out what we think of the Pink puffball. 

The Good…

You already know what you’re getting when playing a new Kirby game. Simple platforming, colorful graphics, cheerful music, and fun times await if you decide to try out Kirby: Star Allies. Fun combo powers makes Kirby feel fresh. The new pole power is a fantastic addition to an already huge selection of powers.  The game is easily accessible for anybody to play. This makes a good game for parents trying to have a fun time gaming with their little ones.


…the Bad

Your AI partners sometimes play a little too good leaving you with little to do. Luckily, you don’t necessarily need to have a full team of 4 at all times making the game a tad more difficult, but not by much.


…the Ugly

The game runs at 30 fps. It didn’t bother me at all, but I know how important 60 fps is to some individuals.


Should you buy it?

If you’re a fan of the pink puffball you don’t need me to convince you. Kirby never gets difficult aside from the boss rush mode. It’s a fun game alone, but it’s even better when you have friends right next to you playing cooperatively. The extra modes give you the usual mini games to play in short bursts with friends; however, they won’t last you forever. If you want a fun simple game to keep you busy until the next big Switch title then this is for you.
