Nintendo releases Kirby Fighters 2 for Switch

Nintendo has released Kirby Fighters 2 for the Nintendo Switch. In the fighting game, up to four players can compete against each other and there is a story mode to play alone or with someone else. The game is in the eShop for $20.

Kirby Fighters 2 has support for local multiplayer with up to four players on één Switch console. Four players can also compete against each other, each with its own Switch handheld. Nintendo Switch Online subscribers can also fight each other online.

Players have a choice of seventeen different Kirbys, each of which has its own martial arts. In story mode, players get a buddy, which can be controlled by the computer, or by another player. The goal is to win battles and ultimately defeat Meta Knight and King Dedede.

Nintendo had not announced Kirby Fighters 2 before. The game is immediately available and is available in the Us eShop for 20 dollars. The game is the successor to Kirby Fighters Deluxe, a game that appeared for the Nintendo 3DS in 2014.
