Kirby: Planet Robobot

– Nintendo 3DS


Hoshi no Kirby Robobo Planet (Japan)

Publisher:Nintendo
Developer:HAL Laboratory
Genre:Platformer

Planet Popstar is facing a metallic menace!

Planet Popstar is being invaded by the Haltmann Works Company and its robotic army, and only Kirby can put a stop to it in Kirby: Planet Robobot, only on Nintendo 3DS family systems. Take the fight to the evil corporation using Kirby's trademark Copy Abilities, including all-new abilities, and turn their own technology against them by taking control of the powerful Robobot Armour! For a breather from the main adventure, you can also get stuck into some fun minigames: partner with pals to take on bosses in Team Kirby Clash, or go for a high score in Kirby 3D Rumble!

In his latest platforming adventure, Kirby can explore Planet Popstar in brand new ways, using the Robobot Armour's handy Wrench to move scenery, access new areas and uncover secrets. That's not all this super-strong armour can do either: by scanning enemies, it can transform and use more powerful versions of some of Kirby's well-known Copy Abilities.

By analysing an enemy with the Jet Scan Spec, Kirby's Robobot Armour will engage Jet Mode, letting it fly across the screen in shoot-‘em-up style, while the Wheel Scan Spec activates Wheel Mode, turning Kirby's Robobot Armour into a speedy car that can race between the foreground and background! You can even customise the Robobot Armour using Stickers that are hidden in each stage, or received from other players via StreetPass.

Kirby can breathe in opponents and objects alike, then spit them back out to smash away blocks or baddies - and he can also copy the powers of any enemies that he inhales, too! As well as loads of returning Copy Abilities, such as Sword, Beam and Bomb, Kirby can borrow a few new tricks from his enemies, too.

Inhaling certain enemies will allow Kirby to unlock the power of his mind with the ESP ability, or throw pills and attack with a clipboard as Doctor Kirby. There are over 25 Copy Abilities to master, each useful in their own way, so give them all a go!

Stand up to the robotic invasion and save Planet Popstar from the metallic menace in Kirby: Planet Robobot, only on Nintendo 3DS family systems!
