Remember Kirby's Blowout Blast? It was announced during the Spring Nintendo Direct as the second of three Kirby games that would be releasing this year. Blowout Blast was specifically said to be coming during the Summer, but not much else was shown or said about it beyond a few short clips of the game.
Oddly enough, it was also absent from Nintendo's E3 presence in both their Presentation video detailing upcoming games as well as the Treehouse Livestream. So what's the deal with the game exactly?
We finally got an answer today as Nintendo nonchalantly announced that Kirby's Blowout Blast would be coming out next week.
Little fanfare aside, it is nice to have at least one more 3DS game in the lineup for what is already a stellar Summer lineup leading into Fall (with the recent release of Ever Oasis and upcoming releases of both Hey! Pikmin and Miitopia in July, and then Metroid: Samus Returns in September).
So there you have it. Kirby's Blowout Blast lands on 3DS eShop on 7/6 next week. If you're interested in footage of the game, Nintendo's Japanese Youtube account uploaded a new video of the game today that you can check out below.
