Nintendo’s Kirby has been an enduring and beloved character since he debuted in 1992. Now, with the latest installment on the Switch, Kirby Star Allies, players can tap into even more of the character’s charm with a new Dream Friends list. This exclusive roster expands the game’s wonderful world of characters by introducing unique and powerful allies that Kirby can team up with to defeat foes and conquer levels.
Kirby Star Allies
Kirby Star Allies is a side-scrolling platformer released in 2018 for Nintendo Switch. In contrast to traditional platformers, players do not control just one character. Instead, they are able to bond with up to three companions who will help them navigate levels and defeat enemies. This mechanic creates an enjoyable mix of strategy and creativity as players help Kirby (the main protagonist) progress through each level.
The game features several unique enemies, bosses and items which appear throughout its various worlds. It also includes many different types of power-ups which give Kiry special abilities such as flying or shooting fireballs from his hands.
Dream Friends List
The Dream Friend list is a new feature added to the game in 2019 and it expands on the characters that Kiry can befriend throughout his journey. These “Dream Friends” are special characters who have been given their own storylines within Star Allies. Players can experience these stories by playing through levels with these characters alongside Kirby.
Some Dream Friends come from previous games such as ‘Kirby: Right Back at Ya!’ while others are brand new creations specifically designed for this game. There are currently eight different Dream Friends available in Star Allies: Gooey, Marx Soul, Taranza, Susie/Veon, Magolor
