Kirby Air Ride 2, known in Japan as Kirby's Airride 2 (カービィのエアライド 2 Kābī no Earaido Tsu), is a 2018 racing video game developed by HAL Laboratory and published by Nintendo for the Wii-U video game console starring Kirby, one of HAL's characters.

Modes of play

Grand Prix

Grand Prix is the mode where the human player plays against other CPU players. There are 8 places, and any where past 3rd place is considered bad.

There are 5 cups to choose from, 2 which must be unlocked: Pop Star Cup, (beginner) Rock Star Cup, (easy), Aqua Star Cup, (normal), Neo Star Cup, (intermediate), Shiver Star, (hard), and Ripple Star (very hard).

Time Trial

The concept of Time Trial is to see how fast you can go through a track without any items to stop you or any other racers to slow you down. However, this does not include the obstacles made for the specific track.

Before you start Time Trial mode, the game will ask you for 3 letters that you choose. Then, if you get a new record or save a ghost, those 3 letters will be next to your time.

The character is automatically given 2 power-speed at the start, one for both characters on the kart. With strategy, the power-speeds can help finish the track faster.

Once a track is finished, you can choose if you want to save Ghost Data. Ghost Data saves your previous race, so you can race against a Ghost racer, which is really just your previous record. This can help you figure out how to beat your previous record.

After beating a specific time for any of the tracks, you will unlock a Staff Ghost, which are supposed to be very hard to beat, for the Staff Ghosts are tremendously quick.

VS Mode

It is multiplayer only, and up to 4 players can play.

In this mode, only human players play, with no CPU players. For example: If 2 players are playing, it's a race just between them. VS Mode cannot be played by only 1 player, and there must be at least 2 players to play VS Mode.

Unlike Grand Prix, you are able to choose a single track from any of the 4 Cups in VS, whereas in Grand Prix you pick one whole entire cup.
