Largely the same game as Kirby: Triple DeluxePlanet Robobot takes Kirby and adds giant mechs. Because why not, I guess? Anyway, Planet Robobot doesn’t seem to be doing anything drastically different with the Kirby formula, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I’ve always thought the franchise has been solid since it’s inception, with some minor snags here or there, and that the core formula of what makes a Kirby game a Kirby game (i.e. Copy abilities, cartoony bright visuals, and a ton of charm) are enough to go on from game to game. There are a few moments so far of greatness and variety, something fans of the series will surely enjoy. Expect a full review soon!



I've been writing about video games for years and playing them even longer. You'll find me playing all types of games, old and new. Mega Man III is greater than Mega Man II.
