New friend abilities let you combine your skills.
Nintendo has announced that Kirby Star Allies will come to Nintendo Switch on March 16th.
In today’s Nintendo Direct Mini, Nintendo showed off Friend Abilities, which allow you to merge two copy abilities to create a new effect. Using Water and Ice together, for example, creates an Icicle Lance.
The Direct also showed off new copy abilities for Kirby including Artist and Spider, and a 4-player co-op ability called the Friend Train, which allows all players to team up.
Another Kirby game, Kirby Battle Royale, is headed to 3DS on January 19, with a free demo available in the eShop now.
Andrew is IGN’s executive editor of news and absolutely adores Kirby. You can find him rambling about Persona and cute animals on Twitter.
