Kirby: Treasure of the Cosmic Ocean is an upcoming 2.5D Action Adventure Platforming Game for the Visus Sphere. It is the next game in the Kirby series and the fourth one developed by Darklight Studios. It once again follows the Pink Puffball known as Kirby as he searches for what he believes is a giant Eclair in Space but is with in fact the fabled, Treasure of the Cosmic Ocean.


While snooping around King Dedede's Castle, Kirby, searching for food finds a dusty old map, opening the map he finds that it shows a chart leading from Pop Star to a mysterious giant object which Kirby thinks is an Eclair however a lot of the chart if missing only indicating a Planet Kirby can go to. So the little pink puffball goes to King Dedede and shows him the map, King Dedede realizes the map indicates treasure but realizing Kirby's expression figures he doesn't know what it actually is and convinces Kirby that he'll help Kirby get to the Eclair but Kirby will need to acquire the pieces of the Dedede Cruiser from across Pop Star first.

Kirby elated by the news immediately sets out to find the pieces while King Dedede chuckles thinking about how he'll be able to buy all of Pop Star, however in the background we can see Meta Knight watching on quickly running off to plan something.


Functioning identically to its predecessors, Kirby: Treasure of the Cosmic Ocean has the player controlling Kirby as he progresses through levels to complete the various tasks; obtaining the parts for the Dedede Cruise, finding the lost map pieces as well as collecting the mysterious Space Doubloons. Along the way Kirby will encounter a variety of enemies that will try to halt Kirby's progress although the little hero can easily overcome most of them.

Kirby once again retains his classic abilities of running, jumping, floating and slide kicking as well as his standard ability to blow bubbles underwater to protect himself. Of course he can also inhale enemies and depending on the enemy can gain a variety of abilities to aid Kirby in his quest. Along the way Kirby will be able to collect rare items to achieve the 100% completiong as well as unlock Boss Stages. 

Unlike previous Kirby Games, Bosses now control multiple levels meaning that Kirby will have to reach the end of each level to unlock the Boss' Stage.
