Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack: Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards is now available!

30 May 2022

Hungry for adventure?

The mysterious Dark Matter is after a powerful crystal, and only Kirby (and you!) can save Ripple Star.

Along the way, Kirby can combine any two Copy Abilities to create a brand-new one, so get experimenting! Up to four players* can also play some lively mini games: Kirby’s 100-Yard Hop, Bumper Crop Bump, and Checkerboard Chase.

It may be a lot to swallow, but you got this!
