Kirby’s Blowout Blast

Kirby’s Blowout Blast launched on the 3DS eShop this week. On Miiverse, HAL Laboratory’s Satoshi Ishida passed along a special message from Tatsuya Kamiyama, the game’s director.

One notable thing Kamiyama mentioned is that the action fighting Kirby title announced for 3DS earlier this year is still coming this winter. We’ve yet to see anything from the game since the original announcement, nor has Nintendo really mentioned it again.

Continue on below for Kamiyama’s full message.

Nintendo of America published a launch trailer for Kirby’s Blowout Blast yesterday. Now Nintendo of Europe has done the same as well, with some different footage included. You can see the trailer below.

Among this week’s new 3DS titles are Kirby’s Blowout Blast and Alchemic Dungeons (currently Europe only, not out in North America). Both are digital games.

With Kirby’s Blowout Blast, you’ll need 754 blocks of free space. Alchemic Dungeons takes up 858 blocks. That’s 94.25MB and 107.25MB respectively.

Nintendo tweeted out the news just now:


Nintendo provided an update on Kirby’s Blowout Blast today. We now know that the game is due out next week in North America and Japan (likely Europe as well). The new Japanese trailer and website offer the latest details.

Kirby’s Blowout Blast uses bigger scrolling stages compared to 3D Rumble in Kirby: Planet Robobot. The requirement to clear the stage is reaching the goal. There are no copy abilities, so Kirby inhales enemies and blocks and sends them back out as Blaster Bullets.

Kirby’s Blowout Blast was absent from E3, but the game is still on the way – and it’s arriving very soon. Nintendo just put out a new trailer that reveals a July 4 release date.

Here’s the video in question:

Kirby’s Blowout Blast hasn’t been dated for the west yet. However, we wouldn’t be surprised to see it releasing next week in North America and Europe as well.
