Kirby: Planet Robobot

Over on Miiverse, the first “Kirby: Planet Robobot Ask-a-thon” was hosted yesterday. Fans were able to ask director Shinya Kumazaki several questions about the game.


In the new Q&A, Kumazaki talked about the game’s name, how long it took to develop, a scrapped idea involving the story, and more. Head past the break for all of Kumazaki’s comments.

The Japanese Kirby: Planet Robobot website has updated again with more concept art. This time, it focuses on designs for the various forms of Kirby’s Robobot armor. Check them out below:

At first, HAL planned to name it Powered Armor, and have five different type of robots:

– Multi-Leg Cannon Pod
– Jet Fighter
– Gear
– Spanner
– (Screw) Driver

However, this idea didn’t get approved, so they decided to choose just the Spanner type and made about 100 designs for the Robobot.
