And Mass Attack came out years before Hey Pikmin did, so there is that.
Also, the Kirby Quest minigame really makes me wish there was a proper Kirby RPG.
(And I dont know if Team Kirby Clash Deluxe technically counts, specially with the microtransactions with the Gem Apples.)

Kirby Clash Deluxe was a lot of fun, the issue was that sword hero was by far objectively the best class to the point where there was almost no point to having any other classes.
And also there only being 4 classes, which kinda hurt.
...and also the fact that (without microtransactions) the game would literally take 3 years to 100% if playing optimally.
But still, it was a super fun concept and no other game mixes action and jrpg mechanics like that game does.
I thought the Beam class was objectively the best. I cheesed all the final battle speedrun challenges with a team of four Beam mages.
Yeah, the Beam class was the best. I tried the Sword class, I thought it was far and away the worst of them all, completely useless.

ngl i totally forgot that beam mages stopped the timer too. yeah, beam mages are really strong too and easy to use.
beam mages are close i suppose, but sword hero's sheer damage off of his charge attack (and his i-frames from it) mean he can kill the bosses quickly without needing to stop the timer, and be safe while doing so. heck, it's almost as strong as hammer's charge attack.
the hammer is super strong but the game quickly becomes charge attack the game (since it has by far the best DPS) and hammer's charge attack is slow. it does a lot of damage... but so does sword hero's.
i honestly don't see how sword could be the worst when his charge attack charges super quick, has mad i-frames, and deals a ton of damage .-.; maybe it only applies to higher level swords, though, which might have been the issue.
we don't talk about dr. healmore.

Still, a proper Kirby RPG could be fun. Each copy power could have its own skillset, with both Kirby and additional party members making use of 'em.

I played as Sword Hero the entire game as well. Beam I didn't find quite as fun, Hammer was way too slow, and healing is for the help. Clearly, it's not so objective though.
It did take me a while to finish it because I used to be one of those people that's super-adamant about not paying a dime on microtransactions just because the practice annoys me. But I finally caved and just splurged 30 bucks or so to buy out the shop's entire supply of Gem Apples, after which the Gem Apple tree grew to full size and started giving me so many to harvest a day that it never became a problem again. Anyone looking to get into it, I recommend just doing that right off the bat and essentially making it a one-payment game. It's a lot more enjoyable that way.
And props to HAL for even making that an option. I've never seen a Pay to Play game that outright refuses to let you spend any more money after a certain point.

I know the Pokemon free-to-play games do that too. Not sure about the other Nintendo mobile games, but from what I've seen their model is more like "play a free extended demo that you can technically go through the whole game with, or pay a reasonable price for a full small game" than "fork over all your money, we own you now".

Soo... I am not really into reanimated collabs, but I really enjoyed this recently released one based around the rather meta Cartoon Buffoon episode of the Kirby anime. Which revolves around King Dedede wanting to make his own cartoon.
Launch trailer for Extra Epic Yarn.
"Can't wait to see The Runaway Guys inevitably take a crack at it."
Agreed. Currently it's the game I want to see them LP the most.
That trailer was the most American Kirby Is Hardcore thing I've seen in years. Especially since it was for Epic Yarn, which stands out as the single least hardcore Kirby game of them all.

Then again, it sure looks epic.
"Do things kirbys never been able to do before."
That's bomb, that's ice, that's sword. Standard issue.
