Apr 28, 2014This is one of the best 3DS releases this year, and certainly not a title I’d urge any Nintendo, or old-school action/adventure fan to miss.
May 6, 2014The little pink dude does it again. A whole new game with a story mode and two other modes on the side to enjoy. Everything look and feels wonderful. This is a must have on the 3DS.
Apr 28, 2014Kirby: Triple Deluxe is an fun and colorful platform. It's pretty easy but well tuned and never frustrating, filled with content, levels and hidden treasure. HAL Laboratory made use of depth in some unique and interesting ways. Too bad the last world is a bit of a let down.
Apr 28, 2014While there’s a strange absence of online multiplayer in Kirby Fighters and the Hypernova feature feels somewhat underutilized, Triple Deluxe still ends up being an experience overflowing with delicious content to be gobbled up.
May 5, 2014The minor melding of the Return to Dreamland structure and the addition of finely tuned extras carries enough weight to make Triple Deluxe a must-have 3DS title for Nintendo loyalists.
Apr 28, 2014Even if you tend not to care much about Kirby games – understandably, given how toothless they can be – Triple Deluxe merits attention. Smart level design and a remarkable level of detail make this portable platformer one of Kirby's greatest adventures to date.
Apr 28, 2014Kirby Triple Deluxe may look great and has some clever ideas for how to use 3D, but falls into a rut of simple platforming and puzzles that rarely require any thought or skill. I admire that it tries to give us more powers and abilities to play with than ever before, but that empowerment shouldn’t come at the expense of any real difficulty.

May 6, 2014This game is an absolute joy. It's got the charm and wonder of games like K64 and Epic Yarn, without sacrificing the awesome movesets theThis game is an absolute joy. It's got the charm and wonder of games like K64 and Epic Yarn, without sacrificing the awesome movesets the classic Kirby Super Star introduced. It's simply an enjoyable experience. It takes what Return to Dreamland attempted but really polishes the gameplay elements. Everything melds a lot more harmoniously in this game. The Extra fighter mode is frantic and fun. A good way to ease a Smash appetite a bit until the actual game comes out. You've got unlockable modes that provide some more remix of the main game experience, and extra harder boss rush. Plenty of keychains to collect and enjoyable enough I can see myself replaying it. the MUSIC IS AWESOME. It's also the best looking game on the 3DS hands down. It's lush, uses the 3D amazingly, and with the added layers, really enhances some of the exploration and collection. Kirby games are entry level titles but after 22 years, it's easy to see why he still appeals to so many, young and old.
The Kirby franchise's mission is that it's completion be accomplished by anyone. It's was to be a great entry level title in an era of really brutal and often non-welcoming NES and gameboy titles. It was pretty revolutionary at the time. However players of all skill levels have enjoyed the series immensely. Kirby games manage to be engaging regardless of their ease for many people. Their charming worlds, the fun and quirky nature of Kirby's powers, and the high quality of it's visuals and music make gamers happy. Kirby really helped me enjoy gaming as a kid. At the time I felt Dreamland was a lot longer and harder than it actually was. Now I can beat the original in 5 minutes top. Still it gave me the confidence to play more single player games on my own. Now I'm a Monster Hunter fanatic and have played a slew of much harder titles, but I still adore the pink puff ball. As a huge fan, I'd say Kirby's Triple Deluxe is amongst my favorite Kirby games. It stand tall and proud beside the Kirby Super Star classic, in my heart.… Expand
Jul 17, 2018I'm close to 100% completion, and I'll get it for sure. This game is amazing! The only thing I can't talk about is the 3D mode as I am playingI'm close to 100% completion, and I'll get it for sure. This game is amazing! The only thing I can't talk about is the 3D mode as I am playing with a New 2DS, but I can analyze the rest of the game. And I love it, I like it more than the recent Kirby Star Allies game for the Switch.
Stages are long and well designed, with many things to do and some hard to find secrets. The game keeps on surprising you with new themes and mechanics in stages until the very end, and that's cool and something not every game accomplishes. As in every Kirby game, don't expect much challenge to beat the game, the story mode, but actually getting the 100% completion rate is hard! It has a few challenging keychains to find, and it has some tough additional modes.
Graphics look really nice on a 3DS, the game is colorful and full of joy, as you'd expect from a Kirby game. And music is also really nice,
The only negative aspect I have seen is the Hypernova ability. Don't get me wrong, it's ok, but stages that use it are quite slow-paced and the ability is a bit overpowered. I preferred stages that didn't use this ability, but well, it's not that bad.
All in all, an amazing 3DS title every user of the console must buy, especially due to its low price as it is a Nintendo Selects game!… Expand
Apr 24, 2021Another really great Kirby game. Again, I don't know what more to say about Kirby games
Jul 20, 2022It's a mediocre 2D platformer. Its semi-fun but not all too special. It's okay.
