Kirby Star Allies developer HAL Laboratory has confirmed that today's newly-introduced Dream Friends will be the final new additions to the game.

Today sees the recently-revealed Wave 3 update arrive in the super-cute platformer, adding more content for the low price of nothing. If you've missed the news recently, we've been treated to glimpses of the latest Dream Friends Magolor, Taranza and Susie, the moves made available thanks to the Three-Mage Sisters, and the creepy-looking challenge mode in individual trailers, all of which is included in this free update.

It's been a great run for Kirby Star Allies, with new, free content being added regularly ever since the game launched back in March, but a new blog post from HAL Laboratory confirms that this is the end for new material - as well as thanking players for their continued support. The game's director, Shinya Kumazaki, shared this image of the team celebrating the completion of its development.
