Much akin to how the minigames of Kirby: Triple Deluxe were later given fleshed out standalone releases on the eShops, the minigames of Kirby: Planet Robobot are also getting their own chance at the spotlight. Kirby’s Blowout Blast is particularly notable, however, for being the first game to take the super-tuff pink puff into a 3D style of gameplay. We knew this game would be coming sometime this summer, but Nintendo has just gone ahead and confirmed when it’ll be releasing in North America.

Nintendo of America recently posted to Twitter, confirming that Kirby’s Blowout Blast will be arriving on the eShop in the region on 6th July. The Japanese version was also recently confirmed to be coming out on 4th July, and the announcement was accompanied by this snazzy overview trailer showcasing what we can expect.

What do you think? Will you be picking this one up? Would you like to see a core Kirby game adopt this 3D approach? Drop us a comment in the section below.
