The May arrival of Kirby: Triple Deluxe is no doubt on the radar of plenty of 3DS owners — it hits North America on 2nd May and Europe on the 16th. While the latter region has to wait an extra two weeks, Nintendo of Europe is keen to ease any disappointment by releasing an all new 2DS design to accompany the pink one's latest adventure.

The Pink + White model pictured above is actually different from the Peach Pink 2DS coming to Gamestop in North America next week, as pink is the main colour of this model. It certainly matches up nicely with the hero of Triple Deluxe and will arrive in stores alongside the game; a new silver carrying case will also be available to buy separately.

As for the game itself, Nintendo has given some facts and figures on collectibles and challenges to emphasize how much the title will potentially offer to eager players:

  • 25 different Copy Abilities
  • The new Hypernova ability to allow Kirby extra power to suck up environments
  • 250 Key Chains to find

As previously announced Triple Deluxe will also have bonus games, including Kirby Fighters which supports Download Play.

You can check out a new trailer for Kirby: Triple Deluxe below. Are you excited about this one and, if in Europe, are you tempted by the new 2DS model? We'll keep an eye out for an equivalent hardware reveal in North America.
