Nintendo loves to release special hardware in tandem with software. Just last month, it released a special Yoshi-themed 3DS to go along with the release of Yoshi’s New Island. Now it’s doing the same for Kirby Triple Deluxe, but only for Europe.
Nintendo of Europe announced today that Kirby Triple Deluxe will be launching in Europe on May 16. It will also be releasing a special white and pink 2DS to go along with the launch. At the moment, the 2DS has only been announced for Europe in what is obviously a slap in the face to the three American Kirby fans who don’t already own a 3DS or 2DS. We’re still about a month away from Kirby Triple Deluxe’s American debut though. Nintendo of America might just announce a similar system for us as well.
To go alongside the announcement of the new 2DS, Nintendo of Europe also released a new trailer for Kirby Triple Deluxe that shows off some new levels and powers. It also reveals that Kirby’s trademark ability can be used to interact with the environment in numerous ways this time around. There’s even a four player competitive mode that can be played with only one game card if you want to convince your friends to pick up the game.
Kirby Triple Deluxe will be out in the U.S. on May 2. There’s no word of a special 2DS or 3DS for the game, but I wouldn’t put it past Nintendo of America. If Yoshi can get his own 3DS, Kirby is surely deserving of one as well.
