Kirby Star Allies launched earlier this month, bringing with it a wonderful celebration of everything that fans love about the Kirby franchise. Part of this could be found in the Dream Palace feature, a special room that allows one to summon friends from across Kirby’s long history. Nintendo has promised to keep this feature regularly updated with new allies, and the first update has now gone live.

After downloading the update, you’ll now have access to Gooey, Marx, Rick, Kine, and Coo. The first two act as their own characters, while the latter three act as one character who changes form depending on the circumstance. The update is free, of course, so be sure to take the characters for a spin and see how they play.

What do you think? Will you be doing a few runs with these characters? Who else would you like to see added in the future? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
