Nintendo is not the company that most pampers its old catalog, but it is slowly working to allow us to play some of the key titles of its history. Thanks to Nintendo Switch’s library of classic console games, you can play excellent games in adapted versions with new features. All a pearl in sweet that finishes rounding out the catalog of the console. And although Nintendo has just announced a single title, the one it has announced is an absolute classic that is still a joy to play today.
Kirby and the Mirror Maze will arrive in the Game Boy Advance library of Nintendo Switch on September 29. It thus joins other games such as Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, the four Super Mario Advance, Kuru Kuru Kururin or the highly sought-after Metroid Fusion on the second-hand market.
Originally released on Game Boy Advance in 2004, Kirby and the Mirror Maze is a game developed by Flagship in collaboration with Dimps and that would have a very marked particularity for a Kirby game: it is a metroidvania. That is not its only particularity. It is also the only installment of the franchise where King DeDeDe is not only not the villain of the story, but does not appear in the game. That coupled with the fact that it’s a game that could be played in up to four-person co-op, played as four Kirbys, makes it one of the most idiosyncratic games in the franchise.
This version for Switch allows you to play cooperatively both locally with a single Switch and over the Internet. In any case, to enjoy Kirby and the Mirror Maze, in addition to waiting until next September 29, you will need to have a Switch Online subscription with the Expansion Pack, which is €39.99 per year.
