Kirby Fighters 2 is coming to Switch, a new leak has revealed.

That leak comes directly from Nintendo itself. A page showcasing upcoming games on the Play Nintendo website mentions the title, which had not been previously revealed.

We have the following information about Kirby Fighters 2 so far:

Idea Factory today revealed that the Switch version of Azur Lane: Crosswave is getting a western release. The 3D action shooter game will launch in North America and Europe in 2021, the company confirmed.

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, two Nintendo Directs came out and they’re pretty fresh! Monster Hunter Rise and Stories 2 look so tempting, and so many other games have us looking forward to the future. Also, Mario 3D All-stars is apparently emulated, but…is that really a problem? We also throw in some next-gen talk with the recent PS5 price and pre-order situation.

One could argue that the battle royale scene has become incredibly stale with a bunch of clones that have been looking to capitalize on the popularity of other titles in the genre. Since then, it has become a bit of a juggernaut with pros and cons on the industry. Spellbreak now adds itself to the long lineup of battle royale games, and while we’ve seen plenty come and go, it’s nice that this one has come through and finally delivers an experience with seamless cross-play and cross-progression across all platforms, leads the way in consumer respect, and offers an appealing look with a magical take.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Nintendo is ending production of all 3DS systems. The company has now followed up with an official statement and more information.

Current 3DS users will be happy to hear that online play, along with the eShop, “will continue to be available”. Nintendo also says “it will be possible to access and redownload all previously purchased content in the foreseeable future.”

The full statement reads:

The third Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase aired earlier this week. Unlike past presentations, this one was live streamed. Generally if Nintendo gives advance notice of a Nintendo Direct and doesn’t let you skip through it, there’s usually an important announcement.

The broadcast did indeed kick off with the biggest reveal of the show. Switch finally has its first original Monster Hunter game in Monster Hunter Rise, which is already confirmed for a March 2021 launch. And if that wasn’t enough, Monster Hunter Stories 2 is coming next summer.

Outside of Monster Hunter, Ori and the Will of the Wisps was revealed and immediately released. Hades and The Long Dark saw shadowdrops as well. In terms of other announcements, we found out about Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny, Sniper Elite 4, and Fitness Boxing 2: Rhythm & Exercise. Rune Factory 5 is a game we knew about previously, but we now actually know what it looks like (and the game is now launching in 2021). You can find the Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase recap announcement here.

With the latest Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase behind us, how are you feeling about it? What do you make of the new Monster Hunter games and other announcements? Let us know in the comments below.

For the release of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition, Square Enix revisited the original game’s soundtrack. Not only were many pieces of music revamped, but a couple of new tracks were added to the experience as well. That all comes courtesy of original composers Kumi Tanioka and Hidenori Iwasaki as well as English vocalist and game narrator Donna Burke.

Prior to the launch of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition, Nintendo Everything was given the opportunity to pass along a few questions to Tanioka, Iwasaki, and Burke. They touched on their experience with the original game as well as their contributions to the new version.

Indie games deserve their own Smash Bros. Bounty Battle is not that game. On the surface, it does so much right: like Nintendo’s all-star crossover brawler, it gathers dozens of popular characters from a variety of iconic indie games to duke it out in 2D fighting action. But it doesn’t take long for its promises of epic indie crossovers to fall apart. Bounty Battle is broken, hideous, and nothing short of sickening to play. It’s worse than disappointing: it’s a disgrace to the hard work of the indie developers who mistakenly lent their characters to this abomination.

Although it launched about half a year ago, Switch fans are still waiting for the release of Doom Eternal. We still don’t have any sort of idea as to when it’s launching on the console, but the good news is that things are coming along.

During a session for PAX Online x EGX Digital, Doom Eternal executive producer Marty Stratton provided a status update. The Switch version is said to be “very close,” and Stratton noted how “we’re trying to be very uncompromising with what it needs to be because there’s a high demand for it.” He added that it’ll be shown “in the not too distant future.”

Stratton’s full words:
