* WintryAuroralSky: Northern lights are heavily featured in the icy White Wafers. They are bright enought to occur in broad daylight and are very colourful (a mix of red, violet, green and blue). One of the level features them so prominently that its music track is actually named "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7v-fNrzhms Aurora Area]]".

* BossRush: Two of them. There's The Arena, which is a rush through all bosses in main mode, and The True Arena, which is a rush through all bosses in the Extra mode ([[spoiler:plus a fight against Galacta Knight]]). There's also the last level of Dangerous Dinner, the final segment of which is multiple copies of every miniboss in the game -- which you face after getting the Ultra Sword ability for a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown. The last level of Nutty Noon, on the other hand, is a tower filled with minibosses from the game (no Sphere Doomers, though), much like ''VideoGame/KirbysAdventure''. The tower holds Gigant Edge, Moundo, Water Galboros, and Dubior, if you're going through the main entrance. The hidden entrance contains Water Galboros, King Doo, Dubior, Kibble Blade, Gigant Edge, Bonkers, and Moundo.

He also mentions that some enemies Kirby fought before came from the world where he comes from. And on top of that, Magolor states that the Lor Starcutter, "the clockwork suns," and the [[spoiler:Master Crown]] were created by the use of an incredible power.

* NewGamePlus: Beating the game once unlocks Extra mode (a throwback to the original ''Kirby's Dream Land''), where your LifeMeter is reduced by a third, the enemies now come in various sizes, [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2 Phanto]]-esque foes are now added to ''every'' area with a key, and the bosses are harder. [[spoiler:Also, Magolor's OneWingedAngel form is now more powerful than ever, especially when you finally encounter Magolor Soul. And before that, Metal General EX summons HR-D3, becoming a three-form Sequential Boss.]]

On June 7, 2011, Nintendo released a second trailer of the game at E3, which shows off more features that the game contains, such as more new abilities, and co-op multiplayer alongside Meta Knight, King Dedede, and Waddle Dee[[note]]aka Bandana Waddle Dee or [[FanNickname Bandana Dee]], the Waddle Dee from the "Megaton Punch" sub-game of ''VideoGame/KirbySuperStar'' and "Revenge of the King" in ''Ultra''[[/note]]. Also, the plot of the game is revealed: while greedy King Dedede and Waddle Dee are chasing Kirby for his cake, a gateway suddenly opens up in the sky, and a ship known as the ''Lor Starcutter'' emerges. It crashes, and Kirby, Dedede, Waddle Dee, and Meta Knight (who happened to be in the area) must help Magolor, the ship's captain, recover its parts and get it working again. See that trailer [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPx8-9TGFhI here]].

** [[spoiler:Magolor]] seems to reference other ''Kirby'' baddies too, though. [[spoiler:His first transformation bears a slight resemblance to [[VideoGame/KirbyAndTheAmazingMirror Dark Mind's]] first and [[VideoGame/KirbysAdventure Nightmare's]] second form, and his shadow ball attacks have as much variety and BulletHell characteristics as Dark Mind's star barrages. Magolor Soul's screen flip technique also comes from Dark Mind's bag of tricks. The spire move, before upgrading to briar thorns, as well as the Sphere Doomer summons are shout-outs to respectively Drawcia Sorceress's [[note]]from ''Kirby Canvas Curse''[[/note]] spire attack and Para-Sorceress summons. Finally, the eye that appears in Magolor Soul's mouth gives him more than a passing resemblance to Dark Matter.]]
