Another stealth-drop by Nintendo. Kirby Fighters 2 is a follow up to 3DS game, Kirby Fighters Deluxe. It's really a super-cute Super Smash Bros fighting game in a Kirby world.

Kirby Fighters 2 is not a first stealthly released game by Nintendo. No, they have a habit in the recent time doing this, as they have stealth dropped some big games on the Switch.

Pikmin 3 Deluxe, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity and Paper Mario: The Origami King were all leaked randomly on Twitter just before getting officially released on the Nintendo Switch eShop.

Tradition is a tradition, not to be broken, so here we are again, same story with new Kirby Fighters game.

Battle your way through exciting modes

Choose from a cast of Kirby’s most iconic copy abilities—including the brand-new Wrestler ability—and duke it out to be the last Kirby standing.
