Kirby Switch controller PowerA

PowerA is planning a new Switch controller design for Kirby, and you’ll be able to pick it up very soon. This is different from the other colorful design we posted about last year.

The wireless controller is similar to the company’s other offerings, but this is a pretty unique design. It includes two mappable Advanced Gaming Buttons that you can program at any time, precision tuned analog sticks, a full size d-pad, a LED indicator for player number, button mapping, and low battery warning, plus more. However, it does not support HD Rumble, the IR camera, motion controls, or amiibo NFC.

King Dedede Nendoroid

We have an update on the previously-announced King Dedede Nendoroid, as Good Smile has provided a release date and started up pre-orders today.

The new Nendoroid has interchangeable eye and mouth parts to create a smiling face, a cool-looking determined face, and a shocked, jaw-dropped face. Also as an optional part, King Dedede’s hammer is included. Those that want to properly display the figure can do so with a stand that’s a part of the package.

The previously announced Kirby 30th Anniversary Music Fest is being performed today, and is being live streamed, giving those unable to attend the concert in person a chance to listen. Fans interested can catch up on the stream below:

On March 25, Kirby and the Forgotten Land was released on Switch, and has gone on to become the best-selling Kirby title to date. Kirby’s Dream Buffet has also been announced with a currently unspecified release date but with a release window of Summer 2022.

The first Kirby game, Kirby’s Dream Land, originally released in 1992 for the Game Boy. Nintendo and HAL Laboratory have launched many mainline and spinoff titles since then across various platforms.

With Kirby having just turned 30, Masahiro Sakurai has spoken about the character’s signature victory dance.

Sakurai is largely known for his work on the Super Smash Bros. series these days. Because of that, it can be easy to forget that he’s the creator of Kirby as well.
