Kirby: Planet Robobot

More footage of Kirby: Planet Robobot is in showing the Robobot and a bunch of its transformations. Watch the new video below.

GameXplain has some new footage up of Kirby: Planet Robobot showing a specific level and a boss battle. Check it out below.

Nintendo has updated the Japanese Kirby: Planet Robobot website. With the latest information and footage, two sub-games are showcased: Kirby 3D Rumble and Team Kirby Clash.

Kirby 3D Rumble is actually called Kirby 3D Challenge in Japanese, but the former name should be used in the English version based on what was mentioned in Nintendo’s fact sheet (since removed). As for the actual game, it’s a 3D action spin-off that takes place on a 3D plane. The goal on each stage is to clear out all the enemies, which is done by picking them up and spitting them out (rather than absorbing their powers). Taking out multiple enemies with a shot increases Kirby’s combo and helps wracks up your total score. There are various kinds of terrains and placements in each stage.

Team Kirby Clash is much more well-known, as it was given quite a bit of screen time during the Nintendo Direct earlier in the month. This is an RPG-esque brawl which supports up to four players, including Download Play. You can pick from one of four roles and cooperate with other Kirbys to fight against bosses. It’s also possible to level up and take on more difficult quests. During battle, there will be collectable tablets (Power Tablets) that appear on the screen. If all tablets have been collected, you can activate the co-op skill Team Meteor.

Here’s a look at both sub-games:

This week’s issue of Famitsu has a few on Kirby: Planet Robobot. It’s rehash in many ways, but it also contains a few additional¬†details – mainly about the different Robobot Armor modes.

We already heard about three of these modes extensively: Beam Mode, Fire Mode, and Sword Mode. More information about these three are now available, as well as two others that we’ve only seen a little bit: Ice Mode and Parasol Mode.

Here’s the rundown:

– Beam Mode: shoots electric balls which become bigger if the energy is charged. The Bouncer Beam attacks enemies while it’s bouncing.
– Fire Mode: Attacks enemies with “Crimson Tail” which spews fire. You can freely change the direction of the fire. You can also attack enemies with fire that spreads on ground.
– Sword Mode: Attacks with Power Beam Sabers that extend from arms. Other than a combo attack, it also has a wide-range Spinning Attack with both sabers.
– Ice Mode: Attack with cold blizzards. You can freeze enemies into ice blocks, or freeze water pillars to turn them into platforms that can be stepped on
– Parasol Mode: Its biggest characteristic is the propellers protruding from both shoulders, which can be used to fly or even attack enemies.

Aside from the opening we posted today, the Japanese Kirby: Planet Robobot website also has a few gameplay clips. The bits of footage have been collected in the video below.

One more asset coming from the Japanese Kirby: Planet Robobot website is the game’s opening cut-scene, which you can find below. There’s no proper sound though unfortunately, so GameXplain added in some background music.

Following this week’s Nintendo Direct, the Japanese Kirby: Planet Robobot site opened. More details about the game are included there.
