    Kirby Fighters first made its appearance in 2014 as a mini-game in the 3DS title Kirby: Triple Deluxe, and then as the enhanced standalone 3DS eShop title Kirby Fighters Deluxe. We didn't hear much about it until now as it seems a sequel will be released shortly. Indeed, on the official Play Nintendo website, a listing for Kirby FIghters 2 leaked, without any prior announcement. The listing, which is still available at the time of writing (see attached screenshots) reads the following:

    You can try to see the listing for yourself by going to the Game Finder for parents link on the Play Nintendo website, and under 'Which system do they play on?', select 'Nintendo Switch systems'. You will then find Kirby Fighters 2 as the second game.

    Clicking on the listing however leads to an unavailable page (see second thumbnail above). According to this leak, Kirby Fighters 2 will launch exclusively on the Switch at $20.

    Must have had enough sale if it got a sequel, I guess? Never played it, but I heard it was basically a downgraded version of Smash. I wonder how much this one will actually sell.

    Eh...the Switch already has Smash Bros.

    I mean sure fighting Kirbys.... and hopefully every Kirby character ever, since they can just reuse the sprites in Star Allies, sounds fun.

    But is not like is a must buy unless you love Kirby.

    Do you want me to be fancy and say "Character models" or what?

    You no longer "hang up" your phone yet the term is still used anyway.

    Really? Why not a real kirby game? I hated this mini game since it was kind of one note and I was awful at it.

    Because Nintendo needs the Switch to keep getting new games, not just ports.

    Yes, that's what EVERYBODY I'VE EVER HEARD SAYS!!!!! A 3D model is functionally very different from a 2D sprite, but a phone call ending is the same as a phone call ending. If you're gonna fight me on this, try a little harder.

    Is 20 bucks, so most like it will be the same as the 3DS game plus maybe a few characters from Star Allies... Because otherwise the "2" in the title is a lie.

    The animal buddies originated from Dream Land 2, a Game Boy title.

    At least Nintendo isn't charging 60 bucks for this.
