Kirby Fighters 2 arrives on Nintendo Switch
The recently leaked Kirby Fighters 2 has appeared on the Nintendo eShop for $19.99.
The game is available now and lets players take control of Kirby’s most iconic copy abilities, including a new “wrestler” ability, “to be the last Kirby standing.” Friends of foes from the Kirby universe, including King Dedede and Meta Knight will also be playable.
Kirby Fighters 2 features a Story Mode, in which up to two players (AI buddy for single-player) are tasked with scaling the tower to eventually face King Dedede and Meta Knight. After clearing a floor, players can select an item that will increase their strength. There’s also a Single-Handed Mode that challenges players to take on nine increasingly difficult battles all alone.
Finally, completing battles will reward players with Fighters Points that increase the Fighters Rank. Ranking up unlocks new copy abilities, stages, characters, hats, and more.
Kirby Fighters 2 is available now on Nintendo Switch.
