E3 2008: Kirby Super Star Ultra Hands-on
"Refurbished SNES games" is becoming its own genre.
by Daemon Hatfield

July 15, 2008 - Nintendo is polishing off one of its Super Nintendo platformers and reanimating it for the Nintendo DS. Kirby Super Star was originally released back in 1996 boasting eight games in one. On offer are several standard platforming adventures that run on the short side and a couple mini-games. Kirby looks slick and cute on his latest DS outing and the series' charm is in full effect.

Spring Breeze is the first game on rotation and is listed as "for beginners." If you've played a Kirby game before this will feel familiar to you. Our hero bounces around colorful 2D environments, inhaling enemies and claiming their abilities. The reason: the population's food has been stolen by King Dedede. And Kirby's not going to stand for it. This game includes familiar bosses like the giant tree that tosses apples.

In addition to absorbing your enemies' abilities, you can also recruit a bad guy to follow you around and attack anyone it sees. Your minion has its own health bar and it will serve you until its energy is depleted.



Mini-games are also on offer. We spent some time playing a card game and a shooting gallery. These are both multiplayer fests and if you don't have friends on hand the computer will provide bots to play against. In shooting gallery, cutouts of Kirby's enemies will pop onscreen and players race to shoot them -- we mean, tap them first. We can see this being fun with friends but it's a little strange when the computer beats you to a virtual tap.



Hopefully nintendo shows us some more stuff as E3 goes along.

seems like a lot of fun...

Livin' in sin is the new thing.

                         

So all of you guys wanted a game with an apple-throwing tree boss?

Jk, looks like the SNES version (King Dedede race mini-game), which is good.

I LOVE Kirby!
