Kirby Star Allies 星のカービィ スターアライズ (Hoshi no Kabi: Sutā Araizu, meaning Kirby of the Stars: Star Allies), is a platformer Kirby game developed by HAL Laboratory and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch. It was released worldwide on March 16, 2018, except in South Korea, where it was released on April 26, 2018. It is the first Kirby game released for the Switch, as well as the first traditional Kirby platformer since Kirby’s Return to Dream Land to support cooperative multiplayer through the main game.
A sub-game available from the start. Players compete to see who can chop down a tree the quickest whilst avoiding Bugs and Gordos under a time limit. It has three levels of difficulty. This mode supports up to four players as well as optional Joy-Con motion controls.
Star Slam Heroes
A sub-game available from the start. Players compete to hit a meteor the furthest by charging up their baseball bat and then timing their shot properly. This is strongly reminiscent of Crackity Hack. It has three levels of difficulty. This mode supports up to four players as well as optional Joy-Con motion controls.
Dream Friends are a feature newly introduced in Kirby Star Allies. They are characters from prior Kirby entries and can be befriended at by using a Dream Rod (which, in the Story Mode, are found in Dream Palaces) - they can also be used in Guest Star ???? Star Allies Go! (by hitting a Big Switch), The Ultimate Choice and Heroes in Another Dimension (where the player switches between them when entering certain doors).
Most Dream Friends have updated graphics and new movesets; if they weren’t previously playable, all-new movesets are available for them to use instead. Some can receive elemental attributes (are so-called base abilities), while others can bestow them (and therefore are element abilities).
The game received three updates adding new Dream Friends. At launch, three Dream Friends were available: King Dedede, Meta Knight and Bandana Waddle Dee. The Wave 1 update (version 2.0.0), which was released on March 28, 2018, added Rick & Kine & Coo, Marx, and Gooey. In the update, a new celebration picture was added, and playing Guest Star ???? Star Allies Go! with the new Dream Friends reveals additional stages and music. The Wave 2 update (version 3.0.0) was released on July 27, 2018, adding Daroach, Dark Meta Knight, and Adeleine & Ribbon. Like before, it also added three new celebration pictures and altered Guest Star ???? Star Allies Go! with additional stages, graphics and music when playing as the new Dream Friends. The Wave 3 update (version 4.0.0) was released on November 30, 2018, adding Magolor, Taranza, and Susie. In the update, three more celebration pictures were added, long with a new mode, Heroes in Another Dimension. Beating Heroes in Another Dimension unlocks an additional difficulty setting in The Ultimate Choice, and collecting 100 Friend Hearts would unlock The Three Mage-Sisters as a Dream Friend, along with three more celebration pictures.
Bandana Waddle Dee and the Wave 1 Dream Friends are unlocked after clearing Donut Dome; King Dedede and the Wave 2 Dream Friends are unlocked after clearing Clash at Castle Dedede; Meta Knight and the Wave 3 Dream Friends are unlocked after clearing Sacred Square; The Three Mage-Sisters are unlocked after collecting a total of 100 or more Friend Hearts at the end of Heroes in Another Dimension.

Kirby Star Allies is a traditional platformer Kirby game, in which the player controls Kirby, whose objective is to get to the end of each stage through the use of Copy Abilities. Kirby retains his traditional moves; the Inhale, Star Spit, Slide attack, Air Gun, and floating.
The game is a 2.5D platformer, meaning that the characters move on a two-dimensional plane in a 3D environment.
Two game mechanics return from previous installments of the Kirby series; those being Mix abilities (from Kirby: Squeak Squad, though in this game they are called Friend Abilities) and Helpers (from Kirby Super Star and its remake, though they are here referred to as “friends”). In a manner similar to the mechanic shown in the trailer for the unreleased Kirby GCN, there can be four player-controlled or CPU-controlled friends at one time. Kirby can throw a Friend Heart at certain types of enemies in order to turn it into a friend by u
