Recently Kirby celebrated his 28th birthday and while there were plans for more festivities at the (sadly but understandably) closed Kirby Café, there are plenty ways to enjoy the pink hero while practicing social distancing. Chief among them on Switch is Super Kirby Clash, the free to play multiplayer boss gauntlet of a game available on the eShop. It’s been around for a while now and while I played it plenty, if you’re new you need to know one thing – Gem Apples run this show.

Thankfully a quartet of passwords have come along in the last few months to help in that department, currently offering 53 freebies between the four of them. 28 of those are to mark Kirby’s birthday itself and fittingly enough the password is TWENTYEIGHTH. This one will be valid until May 12th.
 


 
Next we’ve got a different anniversary, that being Kirby Star Allies’ second to be exact! This password dropped in mid-March and all you have to remember is the name of the game itself – KIRBYSTARALLIES. It may be a small reward of only seven Gem Apples, but it’s still worth entering to mark the occasion and is active until May 16th.
 


 
One more milestone is still active, that being HAL Laboratory’s 40th anniversary. Celebrated back in late February, the company has been at the helm of Kirby’s adventures since the beginning. Inputting HALLABORATORY will gift you not just eight Gem Apples but six each of Fire, Water, and Light fragments to help with gathering up weapons and armor. These are available all the way until February 21, 2021.
 


 
The last is a more routine delivery, named after a piece of armor you can purchase in game with those Gem Apples. For the month of May you can input REGALTANGHAT to get the last ten. These will be available until June 1st.
 


 
If you are thinking of starting the game up (or coming back to it), we’ve got a guide for the Super Kirby Clash heroic roles. You can also keep your eye on the official Kirby Twitter account for more of these passwords, and frequent glimpses into Dream Land.

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.
