Time to dust off your nubs and get back in the ring, as one of the most enjoyable subgames of all time is about to get a sequel. Per the Play Nintendo site and some quick screenshots, it looks like Kirby Fighters 2 may be on the way for Switch!

 

 

This would be a follow up to Kirby: Triple Deluxe subgame Kirby Fighters as well as its own standalone followup on the Nintendo eShop, Kirby Fighters Deluxe. Where those were exclusively for Kirbys to duke it out, this listing cites King Dedede and Bandana Waddle Dee as playable. Meta Knight and Magolor also make an appearance on the icon.

Most interesting though is the presence of a new copy ability! Wrestler shows up with a hat of its own, though if it’s an updated version of the older Backdrop is unknown at this time. Also spotted are Sword, Yo-Yo, Beam, Fighter, Ninja, and Staff.

Be on the lookout for an official announcement for Kirby Fighters 2, coming to the Nintendo eShop for $19.99.

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.
