After their reveal last week, Adeleine & Ribbon are ready to show what they can do as Dream Friends. While Ribbon’s along for the ride, this clip looks to be more about Ado’s place in the pair.

First thing we see is their ability to hide behind a canvas, safe from harm much like Leaf and several other abilities can be. Not only is it a convenient cover, but the picture on it is actually straight out of Kirby 64’s Pop Star stage select as a great, subtle callback.
Speaking of, her attack here is a desperate flail forward with paintbrush in hand that’ll look familiar from her fights in both Crystal Shards and her Dream Land 3 debut. Here it looks to be just a little more effective, a lot more precious.
You can expect to see more of Adeleine & Ribbon in Kirby Star Allies once their free update (also including Daroach and Dark Meta Knight) comes along on July 27th.
