VIDEO: Kirby’s Blowout Blast Japanese Overview & Release Date

Kirby’s Blowout Blast is a standalone version of one of the mini-games contained in Kirby: Planet Robobot. This more fleshed-out digital game is coming to the Nintendo 3DS eShop in North America on July 6, 2017. Nintendo of Japan has posted an overview trailer showing off the gameplay mechanics of the game, which you can watch below:



Have a blast inhaling foes and blowing them away in 3D environments across 25+ stages. Inhale enough enemies and you can launch one huge Blaster Bullet capable of wiping out a troop of Waddle Dees. Now’s your chance to battle iconic bosses like Kracko Jr and King Dedede in 3D!

Inhaling multiple enemies to launch Blaster Bullets is a great way to pump up your score and go for a bronze, silver, or gold star. Another way to score big is to rack up a combo by continuously firing at enemies without missing. Or you could always just collect coins as you jump across platforms. As you progress, you’ll unlock EX stages, which provide a tougher challenge to master. Celebrate your victories by tapping a Kirby series amiibo™ figure to build a statue in the plaza that plays new music!

  • Inhale enemies to launch Blaster Bullets and take out groups of enemies in a 3D space

  • Obtain a bronze, silver, or gold trophy while shooting for a high score

  • Face down beloved Kirby series bosses like Kracko Jr and King Dedede

  • Unlock EX stages and master them for an even tougher challenge
