Hey Look! Nintendo Has Two New Kirby Games Coming This Year!

You wouldn’t have known it from Nintendo’s E3 press conference, but two new Kirby games are in the pipeline for releases later this year, and surprisingly neither one is for the 3DS.

The two games in question are Kirby: Mass Attack for the DS (yep, the old dog still has life yet!) and a currently untitled Kirby adventure for the Wii.

Kirby: Mass Attack on DS sees our loveable pink mascot friend cloned into 10 mini-me versions, with gameplay revolving around controlling this swarm of Kirbies with taps and flicks on the touch screen to outnumber enemies, reach hidden treasures and overcome obstacles that would be too much for one Kirby. This is what it looks like in motion:

As for Kirby’s next Wii outing, it isn’t a sequel to Epic Yarn, unfortunately. But its traditional polygonal appearance and side-scrolling platform action is more than enough to woo every Nintendo fan back to Dream Land for more sugary sweet fun. The game will also support drop-in/drop-out cooperative play enabling up to three additional players to team up with Kirby as Meta Knight, King Dedede and/or Waddle Dee at any time. Here is the game’s E3 reveal trailer:

Both games are shaping up to be a blast, and both will arrive on store shelves in time for Christmas. Kirby: Mass Attack‘s ship date is set for September 19th, while Kirby Wii is simply targeted for Fall 2011.
