Fists at the ready

Those of you wise enough to have purchased the rather excellent Kirby: Triple Deluxe will be aware that the mini-games included with the title — Kirby Fighters and DeDeDe's Drum Dash — are jolly good fun, and stand-out releases in their own right.

It would appear that Nintendo agrees, because the two games are getting stand-alone launches in Japan later this month.

Kirby Fighters Z hits the Japanese 3DS eShop on July 23rd, and appears to add new stages and power-ups. DeDeDe's Drum Dash Z arrives on the same day and boasts new levels and masks for DeDeDe to wear. The price is 750 Yen per game.

There's no word on whether these two mini-releases will make the leap to the west — would you be willing to snap them up if they did? Or are you happy with the versions included in Kirby: Triple Deluxe? Check out the trailers below and then let us know your opinion by posting a comment.
