Kirby Star Allies Dream Friend

Those of you that check up on the News tab on the Nintendo Switch have likely seen something about the impending summer update for Kirby Star Allies, one which will add in a new batch of characters to the cutesy 2D platformer. We already have seen footage of Daroach and Dark Meta Knight, but there will apparently be more Dream Friends in this update.

The official Japanese Kirby Twitter has Tweeted out an image showcasing the silhouette of the next Dream Friend, showing off a distinctly rotund character who appears to bear more than a passing resemblance to Kirby. It seems unlikely that the character will turn out to be mere a palette swap of the pink puff, so it seems that there’s some shenanigans being pulled in terms of the angle of the silhouette. The character should hopefully be revealed in the next week or so, and then perhaps we’ll finally get a release date for that update.

What do you think? Who’s the silhouette? Which other characters would you like to see? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
