Kirby's powerful Copy Ability returns, allowing him to inhale, spit and transform as he encounters enemies.
The game also introduces new Super Abilities, which are activated when Kirby inhales special enemy characters. For example, the "Super Sword" Super Ability allows Kirby to swing a giant sword and wipe out an entire screen's worth of foes.
Up to four players can enjoy the action together. They play cooperatively to progress through the game and collect Point Stars and Ability Stars. Players can join and leave the game at any time.
