  1. If you're a fan of Kirby or off-the-wall animation, you need to do yourself a favor and check out Kirby Reanimated Collab, a grassroots fan animation project centered on the titular pink puffball. Headed by illustrator and animator Roya Shahidi, the project coordinated with over three hundred animators to recreate an episode of the Kirby Right Back at Ya! anime. The episode of Kirby Right Back at Ya! the collaboration focuses its reanimation efforts on is Episode 49 "Cartoon Buffoon" which fittingly tells the story of King DeDeDe trying to animate his own television show. Seeing the events of the show unfold in hundreds of different art styles and perspectives on the material is absolutely fascinating. At one point a scene plays out entirely in paper cutouts, another takes place using stop motion miniatures, and the variations in 2D (and occasional 3D) styles simply dazzles the viewer. It's, simply put, amazing. The non-profit project is free for everyone and a fun fan send-up to the beloved Kirby franchise. Thankfully, it has not been hit with a cease and desist from Nintendo, like many gaming projects have been in the past. You can check out the full credit list of the video on this Google Doc spreadsheet that lists almost 350 contributors to the project.

  3. Neutronized might not be a huge name in the gaming industry, but they've been steadily working on quirky, interesting projects since 2010 from their Italy-based studio. In 2016, they released a cat-focused platformer called Super Cat Tales for iOS (or Super Cat Bros. on Android). Super Cat Tales drew heavily from the heyday of 90s platformers with many people drawing parallels between the mobile title and the high points of that generation like Super Mario World and Kirby's Dream Land 3. Professional reviews, like those from Touch Arcade, gave the game perfect scores with headlines like "Don't Paws, Play This Nya-ow." Super Cat Tales was about Alex the cat on an adventure to reunite with his siblings. The sequel stars Alex and company taking on the evil Lord Iridium and his army of tin soldiers that have attacked Neko Land with a fleet of clockwork airships. The robotic forces of Lord Iridium seek a special metal hidden within the feline's planet and is rumored to be the power that holds the entire world together. Using the different powers and abilities of the various cats that join Alex in his fight, players must traverse the world and thwart Iridium's plans before the invasion destroys everything. Is it really any surprise that the bigger, richer sequel to a highly praised title would be even more impressive? The team at Neutronized have upped their game visually and the trailer really showcases that change. As players progress through an overworld filled with stages from various lands, they'll encounter a variety of new mechanics and situations. At one point, the trailer shows the grizzled cat Sergeant McMeow piloting a clockwork tank through a robotic factory. Overall, Super Cat Tales 2 just looks like a really good time, and you should keep an eye on it. Super Cat Tales 2 will release sometime in 2018 for iOS and Android. View full article

  5. Nintendo announced a new Kirby game coming this March titled Kirby Star Allies. The new adventure pits Kirby and co. against the forces of a new sub-space enemy with a bunch of new abilities and opportunities. Kirby Star Allies thrusts players into a new world with enemies armed with crazy abilities that can be turned against them. Star Allies adds the spider and artist abilities, allowing Kirby to wrap his enemies in big balls of silk and summon artistic creations to do battle on his behalf, respectively. On top of that, players can now toss their companions around as a new way of getting the drop on enemies. Perhaps the most exciting element of Kirby Star Allies lies in the possibilities it presents with 4-player co-op. Up to four friends can team up to take on the forces of evil that threaten Dream Land. In addition to the tossing mechanic, players can combine their abilities in unique ways, like using a water-based ability and a freezing ability to create ice projectiles. Players can even find group-specific abilities that allow them to combine their strength into a friend train or a friend star, opening up new paths and opportunities in certain areas. Kirby Star Allies releases on March 16 for the Nintendo Switch.

  7. Kirby, everyone’s favorite pink ball of power, is comin’ right back at ya on the Nintendo Switch, according to a new teaser trailer from the latest Nintendo Direct. The latest Kirby game looks to be a mix-up of traditional 2D/3D platforming, complete with Kirby’s usual powers of mass consumption and conversion. The big twist this time around looks to be a multiplayer component of some sort, with Kirby chucking hearts at enemies that then become allies of his. The character bars at the bottom of the screen read “CP” for “computer,” indicating that these characters will be able to be controlled by actual players during the game. Characters can combine abilities too, like striking Kirby’s sword form with a fire attack, turning Kirby’s weapon into a blazing tool of destruction. All four players can combine to create a rolling wheel that flattens enemies underneath. A brief clip in the trailer also showed off what looks like a Super Mario-style overworld, with Kirby moving from level to level along a path. And of course, what would a Kirby game be without an appearance from your boy Whispy Woods. Kirby for the Nintendo Switch (no official title yet, it seems) is slated for a 2018 release. What crazy powers do you think HAL Laboratories has whipped up this time? View full article

  9. Few games in the last few years exude as much charm as Save Me Mr. Tako, an indie PC title that uses a Game Boy aesthetic to tell the story of an octopus who doesn't want to fight. The tale of Mr. Tako was originally conceived by French indie developer Chris Deneos in 2014 as a way of honoring the 24th anniversary of the Game Boy. Since then, Deneos has fully committed to seeing the project through. As a pixel artist, Deneos really manages to create expressive and interesting visuals within the constraints of the chosen Game Boy style. The entire project has been constructed using Unity, which surprisingly manages to mimic the Game Boy visuals quite well. Fully titled Tasukete Tako-San: Save Me Mr. Tako, the platformer mashes together the spirit of the Kirby and Legend of Zelda franchises to weave a compelling world full of aquatic and land-based denizens and enemies. Players can absorb and use over fifty different powers from enemies as the titular Mr. Tako to help battle enemies and explore a large, non-linear world. The story of Save Me Mr. Tako centers around Mr. Tako, an octopus sent to fight humans in the great Octopus-Human War. One dark night, his unit attacks a human ship at sea. Mr. Tako doesn't want to fight humans and just wants peace. The octopi soldiers shove a woman into the sea to drown, but Mr. Tako dives in after her, saving her life. A sea fairy, seeing this act of bravery, gives Mr. Tako the ability to breathe outside of water in exchange for never hating another human. To bring an end to the war, Mr. Tako must brave the dangers of both the sea and land, and if that isn't the most adorable thing, I don't know what is. Deneos, working alone, is striving to add as much content to Save Me Mr. Tako as possible. The solo indie developer estimated earlier this year that the game was about half done, with over thirty levels, six towns, fifteen side-quests, and five hours of gameplay. The completed version of Save Me Mr. Tako will include the expected story mode alongside some form of multiplayer mode as well as a boss rush mode. Back in April he still hoped to finish work on Save Me Mr. Tako by the end of 2016, though that seems unlikely with about two weeks left in the year and no official release date announced. While the release date of Save Me Mr. Tako remains unknown, those who find the trailers and screenshots intriguing can download a free demo to see what the finished game will be like. The game is currently only on track for a PC release.
