You can also team up with three other players to battle bosses in the Team Kirby Clash, a ferociously fun multiplayer mode* in Kirby: Planet Robobot. Or, you can just chill out in the summer heat and brush up your drawing skills with Disney Art Academy. There are so many games to play, and just three months until school’s back in session.
