Kirby Fighters 2 for Switch pops up on Nintendo site


Kirby: Mad, bad, and dangerous to know

It looks like Nintendo’s cutest, friendliest hero is getting set to crack some skulls once again, as a listing for Kirby Fighters 2 on Switch unceremoniously appeared on the Nintendo site.

First spotted by folks over at ResetEra, the supposed sequel to the cutesy brawler that featured 2014”s Kirby: Triple Deluxe materialised in the “Game Finder” section of the Nintendo site yesterday evening, with no actual fanfare offered from the publisher itself. Perhaps the title is due to receive its official reveal during the Tokyo Games Show, which starts today.

“Choose from a cast of Kirby’s most iconic copy abilities – including the brand-new Wrestler ability – and duke it out to be the last Kirby standing,” read the landing page. “Familiar friends and foes like Bandana, Waddle Dee and King Dedede also make an appearance as playable characters in the Kirby Fighters 2 game, available exclusively for the Nintendo Switch system.”

No release date was noted in the listing, but a price-point of $19.99 was suggested. We will, of course, keep you updated as and when there is an official announcement from Nintendo.
