  • News Tokyo's Kirby Café Is Adding A Chocolate Pizza To Their Menu

    Review Kirby Battle Royale

    With added cheese

    When Nintendo confirmed a 'multiplayer-focused' Kirby title plenty speculated over the approach it would take, but Kirby Battle Royale ultimately delivers a rather predictable spin-off release. What we have, once you get past an initial introduction that suggests a different style entirely, is a minigame collection, one...
