Battle Arena

Prepare for an all-out brawl! You’ll need to knock out your opponents in this manic, no-holds-barred melee fight. The Kirby with the highest KO count by the end of the round wins!

Apple Scramble

Grab as many apples as you can in this crazy competitive collecting game! Steal apples from your foes, or collect them from the mini Whispy Wood, carry them to your team’s trapdoor, and drop them in to score points! How many apples can you scramble?

CI_3DS_KirbyBattleRoyale_GIF_AppleScramble.gif

Coin Clash

Pair up to collect coins and try to avoid being hit by the other team. Watch out for the ghost that wanders around the arena – if it latches onto you, you’ll start losing coins! You can shake off this ghoul by running straight into any nearby players. The team with the most coins at the end of the round wins!

CI_3DS_KirbyBattleRoyale_GIF_CoinClash.gif

Attack Riders

Tussle for control of a chopper! Whoever’s in the driver's seat can deal damage to other players. However, if the chopper takes too much damage, you’ll be firmly ejected and the fight for control will begin again.

CI_3DS_KirbyBattleRoyale_GIF_AttackRiders.gif

Crazy Theater

Complete a variety of quick-fire tasks! Stand on the correct panel to answer a simple maths question, or simply hit your rivals before they hit you. The player who reaches the required number of victories first will be crowned the winner.

CI_3DS_KirbyBattleRoyale_GIF_CrazyTheatre.gif

Rocket Rumble

Gather fuel for your rocket before the countdown begins, then jump inside your spacecraft before it takes off. Attack an opponent’s rocket to steal their fuel. The rocket that reaches the highest altitude wins.

CI_3DS_KirbyBattleRoyale_GIF_RocketRumble.gif

Robo Bonkers

Team up to take down Robo Bonkers! Place rockets into a small cannon, then fire away! Robo Bonkers will eventually become stunned and slump forward, giving you the opportunity to inflict as much damage as possible. The player who causes the most damage will emerge victorious.

CI_3DS_KirbyBattleRoyale_GIF_RoboBonkers.gif

Slam Hockey

Knock your rivals into next week in Slam Hockey! Hit or throw a giant puck at your enemies to score points. The puck can also bounce off walls and can send players flying if hits them hard enough, so watch out!

CI_3DS_KirbyBattleRoyale_GIF_SlamHockey.gif

Ore Express

All aboard the Ore Express! Gather ore as it falls from the sky and place it into train carts as quickly as possible. The bigger the piece of ore, the more value it will bring. Keep an eye out for golden train carts and Golden Ore to earn extra points.

CI_3DS_KirbyBattleRoyale_GIF_OreExpress.gif

Flagball

Compete to destroy the opposition’s flag pole! If your ball reaches your opponent’s flag…boom! Your team will win the point. Defend your flag pole by blocking the other team’s shots and try to muscle them off the ball. You can even carry the flag pole around with you in later rounds.

CI_3DS_KirbyBattleRoyale_GIF_Flagball.gif

Copy Abilities

Change your strategy before each battle by choosing from a range of unique Copy Abilities! Perform lightning-quick attacks with the Ninja ability, dish out a painful diagnosis with the Doctor ability, or whip your opponents into shape with the Whip ability.

You’ll start out with the classic Sword ability, perfect for dealing with any enemies who get too close, but by winning fights and earning Battle Coins, you’ll unlock more. Master different move sets to transform your play style and dominate your rivals!
