    Super Kirby Clash is a title that offers entertaining solo missions and the ability to customize our character without paying for the game and with the well-known gameplay of other titles in the series. However, the online mode is not positive at all.

    As a standalone game, Super Kirby Clash holds up well to the Kirby series standard with its impressively diverse boss roster, straightforward RPG-lite mechanics, and deep potential for replayability. Though the online multiplayer is an unstable and unreliable mess, this hardly stands as a reason for you to not at least download the game and give it a shot. As a free to play release, Super Kirby Clash also manages to smartly handle its monetization and doesn’t hold back too much, offering you a fair amount of time-gated content relative to how much you feel like paying. We’d give Super Kirby Clash a high recommendation even if it was a low-price budget release at retail, but considering that it literally costs you nothing but your time, do yourself a favour and go download this as soon as you can.

    Super Kirby Clash is a fun game that makes fighting somewhat adorable. The battles with AI and local friends and fast and fun, although a little on the repetitive side. Online battles are too slow to be truly enjoyable but overall this is a free game that provides entertainment in short bursts as you level up your Kirby.

    Super Kirby Clash is a better product than Team Kirby Clash Deluxe.

  1. The four-player boss battle game is a free-to-start Switch game that carries Kirby charm but less complexity in an already decidedly uncomplicated series.

This game is pretty fun, and it has a story mode and an online mode were you can play with friends. For free game this is great. The only bad thing is there is a meter, limiting the amount you can play at a time. Expand

    It's a fun little Kirby free to play game with RPG aspects, multiplayer, grinding and level up system. Fun or what it is but can get repetitive.

    If you are someone who has full understanding of the monster hunting genre and i have had experience (IE: monster hunter, god eater,If you are someone who has full understanding of the monster hunting genre and i have had experience (IE: monster hunter, god eater, dauntless, etc.) steer clear of this game, it will frustrate you. Now if your someone who has never played or heard of any monster hunteresque games then this might be something to kinda of introduce you to that genre. stats and armor making is as simplified as it could possibly be, and there's online play(very spotty near end game fair warning) local wireless, and 4 player co op on one system which is great. four over arcing problems. only consist of monster from team kirby clash deluxe edition and the original team kirby clash bundled with planet robobot with maybe like 2 new bosses and subspecies, with the spotty online, unlike other monster hunting games where a player leaves the quest still go's on just that player isn't there anymore kirby clash disconnects all players and this also has the nintendo "rage quit" punishment system as in the more you disconnect the more you have to wait to play online again, for smash thats great for kirby clash that means if someone decides to rage quit or forced dc. not only did it cost you the quest but you could be possible banned for a bit till you can play again. third the valor system, this is here to do nothing but to restrict how much you play and force monetization( will get to that soon). i don't know why but they kept the valor system(which was part of Kirby deluxe and not the original mini-game i believe) which is basically like every mobile restriction bar. granted it instantly fills up and increases by 2 everytime you level up and it cost 2 apple gems to refill but in early game this is tolerable, end game this can be an annoying obstacle especially since higher lvl quest use more valor. finally the BIGGEST problem with super kirby clash is....Apple Gems aka the main currency for the game. I know some people talk about Mario kart tour being "Nintendo being greedy" and while that's a stretch for that game oh boy they should try this. when the player is introduced to apple gems it seems very tolerable and the choices seem easy to make. you are told you could pay for them but in early game it feels very easy to decide between whether you want armor, more levels, or cosmetic items. you get gem apples for completing quests and doing heroic missions (achievements essentially). they are also used to revive everyone if you all get killed or you run out of time so it will refill it. as well as refilling your empty valor bar. there is also a tree in central hub that a player every 12 hours can harvest 3 gem apples. here's the thing, near end game you have spend more above 80 gem apples for both pieces of one armor set for one class (as the demand for gem apples increases with rarity). end game quests cost like around 35 gem apples, and you'll probably run out of time on these quests as it depends on the level and armor set a person you join up with has. and you'll run out of valor more than you'll level up. and heroic missions start becoming nightmarish with missions like complete this level 45 quest with beginner gear and earn a platinum which is under 50 seconds. here's the thing with the tree in the hub though. while it give 3 it can be leveled up. how do you level it up you ask? buy buying bundles of apple gems using real life money. the more apple gems you buy the more your tree levels up. now the first bundle you'll see is 50 cents which doesn't look so bad but its the last couple bundles you should look at first . the max pack for this game is $35 dollars they get 5000 gem apples instantly and 2000 per 12 hour harvest. meaning if someone paid $35 during the end game grind or as soon as the first time they load up the game ever. they don't have to worry about this troubling grind at all as they just got past it with that transaction. honestly nintendo makes it really hard to avoid the microtransaction in this game. its so tempting heck even i ended up falling for it and fell for it(used my gold points though so i guess they came in good for something). in the end this isn't what i would say an excellent game to start the MH genre with but its really fun with friends and most fights are fun i'll give them that. but even Nintendo who seems to be one of the few companies doing DLC right these days. really did ended up making a f2p game that iss pretty much like a modern day f2p if you ever played. in the end i still have fun with this Kirby game but its super disappointing especially since they did nothing really "new" after the previous "2" installments this spin off serious had. i recommend this as a game to play with friends or for short burst, but not to learn the MH genre or to MH fanatics either.

    Instead of getting a big Kirby game that people care about, we get another butt average spinoff with nostalgia shoved down our throat. MyInstead of getting a big Kirby game that people care about, we get another butt average spinoff with nostalgia shoved down our throat. My cousins used to love Kirby. Then Mario drove them away and they haven't touched a Kirby game since. That's because Mario actually has interesting and memorable games that don't recycle the same crap we've seen for years. Smash Ultimate is the best Kirby game in over a decade. Expand
