Nintendo today announced a release date for 3DS platformer Kirby Triple Deluxe.
The Hal Laboratories game, featuring rotund pink character Kirby, will arrive on May 2 in North America. It was released in Japan last month. Using the same engine as 2011's Kirby's Return to Dream Land, the 2.5D game allows Kirby to power-up and eat or inhale very large objects in order to solve puzzles as well as other special abilities, shown in the trailer.
Nintendo chief Satoru Iwata talked about in-game Street Pass bonuses that will help gamers through tricky levels. The game includes collectibles such as hidden 8-bit keychains and Sun Stones.
