Kirby’s 25th anniversary is well and truly underway, with the latest Nintendo Direct revealing the pink puffball's latest 3DS game originally announced back in Spring.

Kirby: Battle Royale appears to be a cuddly and cute version of fight club. In this title, Kirby enters a tournament to face-off against his toughest rival yet - himself!

Featuring both single and multiplayer friend's modes, go it alone, or duke it out with your buddies in the arena or treasure hording mode. There’s even a story and online mode to entertain yourself with.

Kirby: Battle Royale launches on the 3DS in Europe on 3rd November and in the US on 19th January. Let us know in the comments if you are interested in playing this new Kirby title.
