The game is set to bring over all of the powered-up fun from the original and combine it with some new features such as the Mecha Copy Ability which seems to turn Kirby into something of a blaster-wielding transformer?
Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe will support up to four players in local multiplayer mode, with the option for everyone to play as a variant of Kirby thanks to the copying abilities providing enough distinction between picks — we guess that puts any brewing sibling arguments to bed!
On top of the main adventure, the game is also going to contain a collection of minigames. The Direct revealed that we will see the return of the quick-draw subgame 'Samurai Kirby' as well as showing a peak at a new game in this collection called 'Magolor's Tome Trackers'.
There is still a little while to wait before the game is released next year, but pre-orders are now available on the Nintendo eShop and in the My Nintendo Store.
