Valentine’s Day is almost here, which means a mass markdown on chocolate is on the horizon. And with love too, I guess — both of these points are more than alluring for Kirby. After all, Star Allies is carrying enough of a heart motif to put any card company to shame so it’s only fitting Nintendo would spotlight Dream Land for a set of six, downloadable love notes.

There’s Kirby of course, and Waddle Dee is also available, floating on by to double up on cuteness. Helpers get their due too, with both a group wheel set to bulldoze any doubts you may have about your self-worth, and returning Helper Bio Spark getting to be not just a ninja, but a ninja of compassion.

 
My favorites though are the last two in the lineup. Artist Kirby is a picture of adorability and definitely one Copy I’m excited for. What better way to embrace that handcrafted spirit than with a mass produced token of affection? Last of course is none other than the King himself, though any Valentine’s Day plans might have to wait seeing as he’s pretty preoccupied running this gun show.

You can grab the full set on Play Nintendo before spreading the love and reminding those closest to you that they’re your Star Allies.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
