Nintendo has announced that it will be adding Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards to the Nintendo Switch Online Service + Expansion Pack. It comes on May 20.
This game follows Kirby on his journey to reassemble a sacred crystal that was shattered by his nemesis, Dark Matter. Nintendo has released a trailer for the game showing off Kirby’s various powers. The 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 may be initially put off by Kirby 64’s youthful nature, the depth of the powerful combo system really adds a lot to what would otherwise be an average 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, the pink puff’s latest adventure, Kirby and the Forgotten Land, is the first game in the series to feature fully explorable 3D areas and is now available 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 is hard to play without constantly having a silly smile on your face.”
