In a rather surprising non-announcement, it's been confirmed that Nintendo's recently revealed Kirby 3DS game now has an official title. Introducing Kirby Triple Deluxe, a small announcement oddly absent from the Nintendo Direct that aired yesterday. Instead, it appears the title was found on some kid's Twitter account. It was then verified with Nintendo, but seriously... where does a kid even get this?
The obvious reference with the title is Kirby 3D, 3 = Triple and D = Deluxe, right? What we've seen of the game so far shows Kirby jumping between foreground and background areas, a type of 3D gameplay Nintendo has used in the past. Looking at you, Virtual Boy. Otherwise, who knows if Nintendo really has anything else up their sleeve. We're talking about Kirby games here. They're not exactly driving platformer gaming to the next level.
Still no news on when Kirby Triple Deluxe will be released on the 3DS. Probably towards next holiday season, right? That seems to be the best time for Nintendo releases these days.
