Team up with friends to puff up your powers in Kirby Star Allies on Nintendo Switch, a fantastical platforming adventure for up to four players!

Team up with friends to puff up your powers in Kirby Star Allies, a colourful platforming adventure, only on Nintendo Switch! Up to four players*** can journey through Dream Land together, combining Copy Abilities to perform spectacular special moves or even create new powers!

Wicked weather

Dark Hearts are raining down, and now there's something wrong with Dream Land! When a falling heart hits Kirby, it does something very unexpected...! Kirby gains the power to spread love, allowing him to recruit unlikely allies to help him on his quest to bring peace back to Dream Land.

Open wide

In classic Kirby fashion, inhale opponents and objects then fire them back out to smash through blocks or baddies! You can also copy the powers of certain enemies, which lets you steal their unique attacks and abilities.

Kirby Star Allies

Combine forces

Throw a friend heart at nearby foes to recruit up to three allies at a time! Combine different Copy Abilities to unleash powerful attacks, solve puzzles or add more firepower to your weapons.

Try mixing Copy Abilities with different elements – such as fire, water and wind – by borrowing or giving them to your helpers. Combine the Stone and Ice abilities to turn a character into a slippery curling stone and smash through walls, mix the Fire and Sword abilities to create a super-hot Sizzle Sword, and more!

All aboard the Friend Train

Sometimes you’ll need all four members of your team to join together to perform an impressive special move. Form a Friend Circle to roll through any obstacles that stand in your way, steam towards the end of a stage as a Friend Train, or create a Friend Bridge to pass over large gaps!

Kirby Star Allies

Discover new Copy Abilities

Take down baddies in all sorts of ways using brand-new and fan-favourite Copy Abilities! Wrap up an enemy in a bundle of webbing with the new Spider ability, or slam them firmly into the ground with the Suplex ability. There are loads of Copy Abilities to discover, each with their own unique move sets.

Kirby Star Allies

Share the joy!

Up to four players can join the fun anytime, anywhere! Simply recruit an ally in-game by using a friend heart, then grab a Joy-Con or Nintendo Switch Pro Controller to jump straight into the action! Open up new paths by combining Copy Abilities, and work together to overcome challenging bosses who stand in your way.

Kirby Star Allies

Minigame madness

Go head-to-head against your friends – or against the computer – in two frantic minigames! Cut down a tree as quickly as possible in Chop Champs, or bat away an incoming meteor in Star Slam Heroes. Whoever chops the most wood or hits the meteor the furthest will be crowned the winner!

Heal your party

If your team is hurt during battle, you can scan Kirby series amiibo (sold separately) to spawn in various fruits to restore your allies’ HP! You can tap in amiibo up to eight times per stage to ensure your group is always fighting fit and raring to go.

Kirby Star Allies

Summon Dream Friends!

Thanks to free updates* after launch, even fan-favourite legacy characters can become Kirby's friends! Well, Dream Friends, anyway! When you're saving the world, it's nice to have some heavy hitters on your side - even the likes of King Dedede, Meta Knight and Bandana Waddle Dee!

Gather an unlikely band of helpers to unleash your full potential in Kirby Star Allies, a fantastical platforming adventure for up to four players, only on Nintendo Switch.
