Nintendo Switch is getting a new four-player Kirby spinoff this summer.


A new Kirby spin-off game has arrived on the Nintendo Switch . Kirby's Dream Buffet, a four-player party game featuring characters and powers from the Kirby series, is now available to purchase in the Nintendo eShop.

In Dream Buffet, players will roll Kirby across dessert-themed courses, collecting strawberries along the way to increase the puffball's size. The larger your Kirby grows, the bigger advantage you'll have heading into the final round, as all four players are pitted in a showdown atop a floating platform. The heftiest Kirby at the end of the competition will be the winner.

Kirby's Dream Buffet is available exclusively as a digital download and costs $15.

Dream Buffet arrives just a few months after Kirby and the Forgotten Land, the latest mainline game in the series. Forgotten Land sees the pink puffball adventuring through a postapocalyptic world on a quest to rescue the kidnapped Waddle Dees. Players can claim a variety of free items in the game using Present Codes.

The classic Kirby title Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards also recently arrived on Switch. The game was added to the Nintendo Switch Online plus Expansion Pack service back in May.
