Nintendo announced a new Kirby game is in the works for Nintendo 3DS and is expected sometime next year. You can watch the teaser video below. The side-scroller features Kirby moving not only from left to right, but also from the foreground to the background. He can also “inhale everything” and the skill can be used in specific parts of each stage to help him clear anything blocking his path.
More details about the game will be available in the future.
