Planet Popstar is facing a metallic menace!

Planet Popstar is being invaded by the Haltmann Works Company and its robotic army, and only Kirby can put a stop to it in Kirby: Planet Robobot, only on Nintendo 3DS family systems. Take the fight to the evil corporation using Kirby's trademark Copy Abilities, including all-new abilities, and turn their own technology against them by taking control of the powerful Robobot Armour! For a breather from the main adventure, you can also get stuck into some fun minigames: partner with pals to take on bosses in Team Kirby Clash, or go for a high score in Kirby 3D Rumble!

Robobot Armour, activate!

CI7_3DS_KirbyPlanetRobobot_06.jpg

In his latest platforming adventure, Kirby can explore Planet Popstar in brand new ways, using the Robobot Armour's handy Wrench to move scenery, access new areas and uncover secrets. That’s not all this super-strong armour can do either: by scanning enemies, it can transform and use more powerful versions of some of Kirby’s well-known Copy Abilities.

By analysing an enemy with the Jet Scan Spec, Kirby’s Robobot Armour will engage Jet Mode, letting it fly across the screen in shoot-‘em-up style, while the Wheel Scan Spec activates Wheel Mode, turning Kirby’s Robobot Armour into a speedy car that can race between the foreground and background! You can even customise the Robobot Armour using Stickers that are hidden in each stage, or received from other players via StreetPass.

Make enemy abilities your own!

Kirby can breathe in opponents and objects alike, then spit them back out to smash away blocks or baddies – and he can also copy the powers of any enemies that he inhales, too! As well as loads of returning Copy Abilities, such as Sword, Beam and Bomb, Kirby can borrow a few new tricks from his enemies, too.

Inhaling certain enemies will allow Kirby to unlock the power of his mind with the ESP ability, or throw pills and attack with a clipboard as Doctor Kirby. There are over 25 Copy Abilities to master, each useful in their own way, so give them all a go!

amiibo in action

If you use the Kirby amiibo from the Super Smash Bros. Collection* (sold separately), the pink hero can also become Smash Bros. Kirby, complete with many of the moves that make him such a formidable fighter, like the Hammer Swing, Final Cutter and the Stone attack, as well as the ability to Shield from enemy attacks. Other amiibo, including amiibo from the Kirby Collection, can be used to give Kirby Copy Abilities too. If you have an amiibo, why not tap it in to see what happens?

Team tussle

Team up with friends or CPU-controlled team-mates to take on big, bad bosses in Team Kirby Clash, an action/RPG mash-up! Join up with up to three other players via local multiplayer or Download Play* to take down powerful enemies as quickly as you can.

Kirby can choose between four classes based off of traditional RPGs, like the Sword Hero, Hammer Lord, Doctor Healmore and the Beam Mage. After each battle, each Kirby will gain experience and has the potential to level up, improving stats that will aid in subsequent battles. During battles, enemies might also drop pieces of magical Power Tablets. Gather together any tablets that pop up and you'll be able to strike hard with a special co-operative Team Meteor attack!

Ready to rumble

In Kirby 3D Rumble, a single-player action-puzzler, suck up objects or enemies and eliminate all foes in as few moves as possible. By sucking up multiple enemies at once, Kirby can then unleash a powerful Star Bullet that will plough through any enemies in its way. Use this sort of technique to rack up the highest score you can!

Stand up to the robotic invasion and save Planet Popstar from the metallic menace in Kirby: Planet Robobot, only on Nintendo 3DS family systems!

For instance, Kirby can become Fire Kirby with any Mario amiibo, or let loose with the Parasol when a Princess Peach amiibo is used. If you tap in a Kirby amiibo from the Super Smash Bros. Collection, the pink puffball can even show off some of his Super Smash skills!
