Nintendo has announced that it will add Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards to the Nintendo Switch Online Service + Expansion Pack. It will arrive on May 20.
This game follows Kirby as he journeys to reassemble a sacred crystal that was shattered by his nemesis, Dark Matter. Nintendo has released a trailer for the game showing Kirby’s various powers. Multiplayer mini-games can also be played locally or online. The game joins several other Nintendo 64 titles included in the expansion pack, such as Mario Kart 64, Star Fox 64, and Super Mario 64.
In GameSpot’s Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards review, we said, “While some might initially be put off by the youthful nature of Kirby 64, the depth of the power combo system really brings a lot to what would otherwise be a game. medium platformer. Nintendo 64 owners should definitely check this one out.”
Kirby 64 is the first game in the series to feature 3D computer graphics. Coincidentally, Pink Puff’s latest adventure, Kirby and the Forgotten Land, is the first game in the series with fully explorable 3D areas and is available now on Nintendo Switch. In GameSpot’s Kirby and the Forgotten Land review, we said, “Kirby and the Forgotten Land is one of those games that’s hard to play without constantly having a goofy smile on your face.”
