With more unannounced fighters coming for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate from now until the end of 2021, there's no shortage of video game icons joining the fray in gaming's ultimate crossover brawler. Adding all these fighters--plus the accompanying music, spirits and extras--isn't just work for game director Masahiro Sakurai and his team, though. Spare a thought for poor old Kirby! With every new fighter added, the saviour of light has to copy their abilities and fashion a new hat, too.
Some of his copied costumes and moves are mighty cute, so intrepid brawler and Nintendo Life news reporter extraordinaire Liam Doolan has snapped pics of the pink puffball (with a couple of official pics of the most recent entrants) and we have assembled the following gallery of Kirby's copy-based transformations for your viewing pleasure.
If you're after the regular roster of Smash Bros. brawlers, check out our full list of every fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Remember that while the numbers currently go up to 77, you'll find more than that in our gallery thanks to the five 'echo' fighters (denoted with a 'ε').
So, join us as we go on a journey to find the many faces of Kirby...
