Kirby: Triple Deluxe[a] is the thirteenth platform and tenth mainline installment of the Kirbyvideo game series, developed by HAL Laboratory and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo 3DS. The game was released in Japan on January 11, 2014, in North America on May 2, 2014, in Europe on May 16, 2014, and in Australia on May 17, 2014.
It received many positive reviews upon its release. Praise went to the level design, the new hypernova feature, soundtrack, graphics, use of 3D, and extra content. However, it received some criticism for its easy difficulty.
One day, Kirby was having a normal day full of fishing, eating, and riding his Warp Star. That night, while Kirby was sleeping, a giant beanstalk called the Dreamstalk begins growing under Dream Land and carries various landmarks, including Kirby's house and King Dedede's castle, into the sky. When Kirby wakes up the next morning, he finds himself in a new land called Floralia, located high in the skies above Dream Land. Kirby makes his way to Dedede's Castle and finds that the culprit behind the Dreamstalk is a six-armed, spider/tarantula-like being named Taranza, who has captured Dedede. Kirby ascends the Dreamstalk and gives chase after Taranza to rescue Dedede and set things right once more.
When Kirby finally reaches Taranza, he attacks Kirby using a brainwashed Masked Dedede. After an intense fight, Kirby is able to knock out Masked Dedede and free him of his brainwashing. Taranza reveals that he has been working for Floralia's self-proclaimed Queen, the bee/wasp-being Queen Sectonia, and that the Floralians planted the Dreamstalk in the hopes of summoning Dream Land's hero to their aid. Mistakenly believing King Dedede to be that hero, Taranza kidnapped him on the orders of Queen Sectonia, who wants to use the Dreamstalk to take over Dream Land. Download ringtones free mp3. Queen Sectonia betrays Taranza for his failure, blasting at him with her staff that causes him to fly away from the tower before turning her sights on Kirby.
Kirby faces Queen Sectonia and wins. Kirby and Dedede celebrate, but Sectonia merges with the Dreamstalk and turns into a giant flower-like monster. She begins to spread vines all over Popstar, ripping out pieces of land for her kingdom and preventing anyone from getting close enough to attack her. With Dedede's help, Kirby manages to get through Sectonia's vines and confronts her once more.
Kirby eventually defeats Queen Sectonia, but Sectonia grabs Kirby with her vines and tries to crush him while Kirby cries for help. While this is happening, King Dedede and Taranza (with a change of heart) come to Kirby's rescue, freeing him and giving him one more Miracle Fruit to use against the queen. Kirby finishes off Queen Sectonia by inhaling her giant laser blast and spitting it back out at her, destroying her utterly. This done, Kirby is ferried back home by the People of the Sky, and the Dreamstalk is purified, going into full bloom and becoming a permanent fixture of Dream Land.
At the end of Dededetour! (an extra mode featuring King Dedede as the protagonist) King Dedede encounters a clone of himself from another dimension, Shadow Dedede. Although both kings fight each other, the real Dedede beats the shadowy clone. After this, he encounters Dark Meta Knight, who has come back for revenge. Dedede, however, defeats him, sending him back into the mirror he came from. He then uses his hammer to destroy the mirror.
At the end of The True Arena (a boss rush that is unlocked by beating the game), Queen Sectonia uses the Miracle Fruits to revive herself. Kirby then fights Soul of Sectonia, a harder version of Queen Sectonia with brand new attacks. Defeating her first form makes her rip herself out of the Dreamstalk for the final (bonus) boss of the game. She is able to do many new attacks, some of which reference previous Kirby final bosses such as Marx and Drawcia. Upon her final defeat, Queen Sectonia explodes in a flurry of blue petals, as a single large, sparkling blue petal is seen drifting down the screen.
Kirby: Triple Deluxe is a platformer displayed in a 2.5D perspective. Some enemy attacks also emanate from the background. Kirby can eat a rainbow-colored Miracle Fruit to become Hypernova Kirby, which allows him to inhale extremely large objects. Bandana Waddle Dee also throws Assist Stars at Kirby, which, by pressing the Y button, can heal Kirby.
New copy abilities include Beetle, which allows Kirby to use a Japanese rhinoceros beetle's horn to impale enemies, slam them on the ground, or carry them around; Bell, which lets Kirby wield twin bells, use them as a shield, and attack with sound waves; Archer, which lets Kirby fire arrows and use fake trees and boulders to avoid enemy attacks; and Circus, which allows Kirby to ride on a giant rolling ball to bowl over enemies, juggle flaming bowling pins to attack enemies above him and use exploding balloon animals as weapons. At least 20 copy abilities from previous games return, including Wheel, which was absent from Kirby's Return to Dream Land.
Two new subgames are Kirby Fighters, a Super Smash Bros. style fighting game where the player can customize their own Kirby and give him one of ten copy abilities to battle other Kirbys in stages based on levels from previous Kirby games; and Dedede's Drum Dash, a rhythm game starring King Dedede, who jumps on drums while avoiding enemies and collecting coins to the tune of classic Kirby songs. The main game is single player only. Players can also find and collect keychains which depict characters from previous Kirby games.
After the main story mode is completed, players unlock an extra mode called Dededetour, featuring King Dedede as the playable character. In this mode, all of the bosses are replaced by their 'DX' counterparts, who sport different color schemes, are more powerful, and have new attacks. At the end of this mode, Dedede fights Shadow Dedede and Dark Meta Knight, who are King Dedede's and Meta Knight's evil clones from the Mirror World.
The game was announced on October 1, 2013 during a Nintendo Direct presentation. Despite this the title of the game wasn't actually revealed until over a month later, when the title was mentioned in a recap email sent by Nintendo after that November's direct.
Enhanced versions of the two minigames featured in the main game, titled Kirby Fighters Z and Dedede's Drum Rush Z, were released as standalone titles downloadable from the Nintendo eShop on July 23, 2014 in Japan and August 29, 2014 in North America as Kirby Fighters Deluxe and Dedede’s Drum Dash Deluxe and it was also available in Europe on February 13, 2015. These versions feature new stages and gameplay features, with additional content unlocked if save data from Kirby: Triple Deluxe is detected.
Kirby Fighters Deluxe would later a receive a follow up on the Nintendo Switch in September 2020, titled Kirby Fighters 2, using the Kirby Star Allies engine. It features more content, online play, more copy abilities (including the new 'Wrestler' ability), and playable characters besides Kirby.
|Nintendo World Report||8.5/10|
The game received positive reviews, holding an average of 80 on Metacritic based on 68 reviews and an 80.62% on GameRankings. GameSpot awarded the game an 8 out 10, praising the level design, graphics, soundtrack, use of 3D, controls, and lasting appeal. Polygon gave it a 7.5 out of 10, praising its innovative level design but criticizing the overall aesthetics as 'simple' and 'drab' in comparison to earlier games. Hardcore Gamer gave the game a 4 out of 5 calling it a 'one of the best handheld iterations in the beloved Nintendo franchise.'
However, IGN's Jose Otero gave it a 6 out of 10, praising its boss battles and use of the 3D, but strongly criticizing its low difficulty. He stated, 'Kirby Triple Deluxe may look great and has some clever ideas for how to use 3D, but falls into a rut of simple platforming and puzzles that rarely require any thought or skill. I admire that it tries to give us more powers and abilities to play with than ever before, but that empowerment shouldn’t come at the expense of any real difficulty.'
As of March 2015, the game has sold 1.78 million units worldwide.
