Nintendo’s Switch To Receive a Kirby Remake & ‘It Takes Two’ Port!

Another year and another Kirby game was announced at Nintendo Direct. I’m not complaining, but a little variety would be nice. And, no, I don’t want a slew of shovelware games announced for the eShop. I guess we’ll take what we can get until the next Metroid game comes out.

Kirby’s Return to Dream Land originally debuted on the Nintendo Wii in 2011. It allowed up to four players to journey through Planet Popstar simultaneously. I remember it was a fun adventure with all the typical Kirby trappings. However, based on the video Nintendo of America included in its tweet, the graphics appear slightly more cartoon-like. It’s not precisely cel-shading, but there’s a noticeable outline around each character.

Sure, this is another gussied-up remake of an existing Kirby title, but now pink puffball can turn into a mech! Ever wanted to destroy your enemies as a Gundam-like Kirbo? Here’s your chance! Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe will be out for the Switch on February 24th, 2023.

In other news, GameSpot reported that EA’s two-player title, It Takes Two, is coming to the Nintendo Switch. The last we heard about this game, it was possibly becoming a motion picture. The co-op marriage counseling adventure simulator has already been released on most other platforms, with Nintendo’s hybrid console being the odd man out. That is set to change on November 4th.

Keep in mind that the game requires two players. It was not made clear in the article if the Switch version would support the “invite a player and they get to play the game for free” feature or not. If you don’t have someone at home to play with, you’re stuck with online multiplayer, which can be hit or miss depending on how well they communicate. It’s a co-op game in every sense of the word. Like marriage, you can’t progress without the other person’s help.

What do you think of these announcements? Let us know below.
