Game Completion 2018 #19 – Kirby Star Allies

  • Game: Kirby Star Allies
  • Platform: Switch
  • Developer: HAL Laboratory
  • Publisher: Nintendo

If you’re a regular listener to Switch Focus Podcast, you’ll know that Kirby Star Allies is my first ever Kirby game. I’m not sure why, but I’d either never happened upon a Kirby game in my youth, and didn’t have the interest as an adult.

Still, as a Switch super-fan, I finally wanted to give it a go and really enjoyed it for what it was: a low-investment, low-challenge, relaxing b-tier Nintendo platformer. It’s not mind-blowing, but fun and pleasant. I’d happily play more Kirby in the future.
