Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe is set to release exclusively for Nintendo Switch on February 24th. A remake of his 2011 Wii game, it’s a fairly traditional side-scrolling Kirby His Adventure, complete with enemy copy abilities and stronger mecha copy abilities. Up to 4 players can play together on a single Switch (but no online mode). Unlike Kirby and the Forgotten Land, other players can also play as Kirby, so they can also copy enemy powers.
The game is currently available for pre-order from various retailers (see on Amazon). Read more about the game here. Also, check where you can reserve a copy for yourself.

What is Deluxe Return to Kirby’s Dreamland?
Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe is a remake of the 2011 platformer for Wii. It begins with an alien spaceship crash-landing on Kirby’s hometown of Popstar. Inside is an alien named Magoror who wants help in collecting his five parts for his spaceship.
So you set off on a platforming collecting exercise. The game supports up to four-player local co-op, where each player can play as Kirby. One of my biggest complaints about Kirby and the Forgotten Land is that he couldn’t play as a second player as a pink fluff, so he couldn’t copy enemy abilities. it was a drag. Good thing it doesn’t matter here.
In addition, many mini-games that can be played by up to 4 people are also included. There is also a new mini-game called Megolor’s Tomb Trackers. Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe seems to appeal to anyone interested in Kirby games in general.
