Because of all the copy abilities in Kirby’s repertoire, the pink puffball is hosting his own brawling tourney with Kirby Battle Royale.

Picture Super Smash Bros. with nothing but Kirbys. Swing a sword, crack a whip, smash with a hammer or charge up a beam. Up to four players can choose from countless copy abilities and fight until the last Kirby standing.

If bloodless battles are more your style, you can get competitive in the other nine modes. Play a makeshift game of Slam Hockey, hoard treasure in Ore Express or shoot missiles at Robo Bonkers. There’s even a single-player adventure where you foil King Dedede’s plans yet again. And because it’s Kirby, there’s cake involved.

Get competitive, get co-operative or just get cute. Kirby Battle Royale releases on Jan. 19 and is available for pre-order on Amazon for $39. Prime members get an additional 20% discount, meaning you get it for $31.99.
