Kirby Fighters Infinite is a new Kirby Game on the Nintendo Switch planning for a release date of October 13th, 2019 and the successor to Kirby Fighters Deluxe on the Nintendo 3DS. A logo with the words Kirby Fighters with the infinity sign below "Fighters" has been confirmed to be the logo, but besides that, however progress is still underway.
The game involves Kirby fighting his enemies in fifteen battles and becoming the champion fighter of Dream Land. If you manage to beat Tourney with all of Kirby's abilities in this game (excluding Smash), you can unlock Super Tourney Mode and take on harder version of opponents (excluding Master Hand and Meta Knight). You can also tap Kirby series amiibo (see Part 5 below) and try Training with Knuckle Joe helping you out! Now let's check out...
The Level Up System
If you manage to score hits on enemies, after the fight, it will show how many Nova Points you've gotten! Nova Points are the yellow bar shown below Kirby during battle. These can also enhance Kirby's attacks with abilities, so make sure you rack up as many Nova Points as you can in order to have the strongest copy abilities!
Now let's talk about Kirby's arsenal of abilities! There are 9 different types of abilities in this game. One of them involves using an amiibo, but we'll get to that later on.
