Okay guys. I have a serious question so only answer if you're going to give me a serious response.

The only Kirby game I ever played was the Gameboy back in the 1990s when I was a kid. Will this game give my nostalgia a kick in the head? Most importantly, is it fun? I'm tearing myself up debating whether to get this game or not.

If you've only ever played the original Kirby's Dreamland on the Game Boy I'd say you're in for a real treat if you get Kirby: Triple Deluxe.

I just beat the final boss. Now that was the most epic battle in a Kirby game yet!

Does Kirby: Triple Deluxe have any Ability museums in it like some of the other games?

@HeroOfCybertron: After you beat the game, there's an ability "museum" where you can play around with all the abilities in the game.

This game is fantastic. I have a bad feeling this game is underrated when it shouldn't be. Seriously, I think this is one of the best Kirby games. I may even like it more than Return to Dreamland. The entire game is a love letter to the Kirby series. It is crammed full of charm. The music is wonderful. The game is completely gorgeous and the frames are smooth as butter. I'm even starting to think this is my favorite 2D platformer on 3DS.

Can't wait to try this game out. Some reviewers I've read say the game is one of the best Kirby games and even claim it's the best sidescroller on the 3DS. Other reviewers don't review it in such high regard.

Gonna give it a whirl to form my own opinion.

Still majorly hyped for this. I do not trust reviews on platformers anymore after the Yoshi's New Island debacle. The game wasn't nearly as bad as many reviewers (including the NL one) would lead people to believe. It's actually a fun little adventure. Not GOTY material, but certainly not deserving of the widespread panning it received.

Nah, Yoshi's New Island is a disaster. It has none of the redeeming qualities of the original.

Can't speak to that, as I've never played the original (can't download it on the Wii, Wii U or 3DS, and I'm not much for emulating pirated ROMs), but what I tried of Yoshi's New Island was fun and competently made. Not a Great Game by any length of the imagination, but you've obviously never seen a real gaming "disaster." E.T. for the Atari 2600 was a disaster. Earth: Year 2066 was a disaster. YNI is merely a fun, as opposed to a classic, game.

Is the motion control mandatory?

I picked this up a few days ago, and I'm enjoying it so far! I'm almost finished with world 3. This is definitely a more relaxing platforms than what I'm used to playing. (games like New Super Mario Bros. or Tropical Freeze.) I got a chance to play Kirby Fighters with some friends, which was tons if fun, but too bad a certain game coming out this summer will pretty much make it obsolete. So far I pretty much agree with the review, it's a solid platformer but it doesn't do anything super special. (Though I still need to finish the game before making my final decision)

I like makin' games!
Future Pinball games!
Petit Computer games!!
and SmileBASIC games!
Waiting for Kirby Air Ride 2. One day, it will come. One day...

Kirby Fighters is basically prep for Super Smash Bros. 3DS.

They are mandatory for a few short sections but despite being gimmicky and unnecessary, they work pretty well. They're nowhere near as irritating and imprecise as the motion controls for Yoshi's New Island.

Honestly, this is a fantastic Kirby game. There's been plenty of events and set pieces that made me smile, and the charm seems to never end. Hypernova is entertaining and has some neat uses. The new copy abilities are unique and fun to use. Collecting the keychains is satisfying and can be very nostalgic. There's a lot of them too, which is a plus. Kirby Fighters is a nice little distraction and is quite good.

The fact that this game doesn't technically do anything new is so unimportant. It has a good variety of interesting features. The often disliked gyro control is never overused and feels right at home, the foreground/background mechanic is used to great effect, and the levels are diverse and full of pleasant scenery. Some bosses and stage hazards make good use of the 3D, too. As far as I'm concerned, it does everything right, whether it's "new" or not.

Beep.
That is all.

Have you tried every nook and cranny? o: They are usually hidden on where you can't stumble onto them, and usually has more challenge than just going through the world...

Some character impressions of King Dedede with story spoilers:

I think Dedede's days of villainy have ended with this game. While his heroic deeds in Return to Dreamland were apparent, this game seems to solidify him as a reformed character. He saves Kirby's life from Queen Sectonia so he could defeat her and save Pop Star, making him a second hero. If you had never played a Kirby game before, you'd think Dedede was always a nice guy. I know he was secretly a good guy in Kirby's Adventure, but for the majority of the game before that plot twist, Dedede was portrayed as Kirby's biggest rival and a villain. He just sided with Kirby in order to fight off a greater evil, like Bowser in some of the Mario RPGs. Even after his good deed in Adventure, he was still a bad guy, especially in Kirby Super Star and its remake. In recent years, however, it can't be denied that Dedede has become much friendlier with Kirby. Maybe I'm looking into it too much, but I think Nintendo and HAL may have made Dedede turn a new leaf.

Dedede was always more of a jerk than an actual bad guy

Where have you been this whole time? Dedede was never really a villain since the first game. Even then he was just being a jerk. Mostly if not all of the fights that took place, he was possessed. He joins you in Kirby 64. Super Star doesn't count, as Spring Breeze is a remake of the first game.

The basic definition of a villain is anyone who opposes the main hero and is a threat to the story. Dedede used to be a jerk, but villains are jerks. It doesn't matter whether you steal all the food in the land or try to take over the world. In the end, I still think he used to be a villain, but a petty one. I guess Dedede is like Wario from the Mario series, a greedy character who had a villainous start before softening up over the years and becoming an anti-hero.

He never tried to take over the world. The only thing bad he has ever done was steal food in the first game (and this game got remade in Kirby Super Star), King Dedede was already softening up in the Extra Mode of Kirby's Dreamland. By the second game he was already shown being a hero by breaking up the Star Rod to prevent the nightmares. Only stopping Kirby because he was gathering them back up. Every time you fight him after then on, has been either a possessed King Dedede or a fake version of him. I call him a jerk though for the Gourmet Race in Super Star. Dedede trained his body to be just like Kirby and wanted to test him. In Kirby 64 you can tell he didn't really like the idea of actually teaming up with him but swallowed his pride and joined him. With the exception of Squake Squad, though Kirby ATTACKED King Dedede for thinking he stole his cake. He was just defending himself. King Dedede is a great guy and one of my favorite characters, if not my favorite.
