Kirby (often called Kirby 3D) is a Kirby series platformer for the Nintendo 3DS.


Kirby was having a peaceful nap under a tree, until he saw what looked like to be an old castle in a dark, ominous cloud. The camera zooms into the castle to show a sorcerer named Nass T. Mann, who says he has come to conquer a new planet. Nass T. zaps random locations on Popstar, making forces guard his amulet pieces. Kirby decides to go and defeat the new villain.

Kirby soon arrives in what looks to be an empty meadow. Suddenly, Nass T. appears are puts a curse on a Lovely flower, transforming it into the Lovely Queen. After defeating the queen, Kirby holds up a piece of the amulet and stores it away before heading to Donut Dunes.

Kirby then arrives in a stone arena where he sees Meta Knight. Nass T. appears again and launches a magic pulse at Meta Knight, turning him evil. After Kirby defeats Meta Knight, he turns back to normal and tells Kirby that he will join him to stop Nass T. Mann.

After completing the regular story, Extra Mode will be available.
