Kirby’s Dream Buffet – Nintendo’s hyper-colored, bumble royale Fall Guys version – will be released surprisingly soon.
After the premiere of Kirby and the Forgotten Land earlier this year, the pink puffball will hit the Nintendo Switch again later this month. AND short trailer (opens in a new tab) appeared midway through Kirby’s 30th anniversary concert, announcing the game’s Japanese price and release date for August 17th.
Nintendo later confirmed on Twitter that Kirby’s Dream Buffet will be released worldwide on the same day, and its eShop in English (opens in a new tab) the site confirms the price of £ 13.49 – around $ 16.50 / $ 23.

Unveiled last month in a short teaser teaser, Kirby’s Dream Buffet is set to combine the usual pink puffball platformer with Fall Guys’ multiplayer competition. You will compete against other players in a series of races, arenas and challenges to earn points and become the winner.
But it differs from Fall Guy in several major ways. You’ll only play against three other opponents, not a 60-player server, as each player takes on the role of a different, customizable Kirby. It also has a distinct food theme, with each level requiring you to eat as many edible treats as possible in order to end the round with the heaviest character.
By imitating the mascot’s ability, you will be able to take the form of certain foods you swallow. The new trailer showed Kirby releasing an icing centrifuge on his head after eating a cupcake, allowing him to spin like a tornado. Other enhancement products include donut, chili pepper, jelly, and chocolate.
You need a Nintendo Switch Online membership to play this game with your buddies online. You’ll also be able to play local two-player co-op without a subscription.
