Kirby and the Distorted Realm is a game by Power Paintbrush Productions, to be released on the 3DS sometime 2016.
In Summer 2017, a Version of the game for The V² was released. The game was essentially the same, but the player uses the Right Thumbstick to move the "Rainbow Cursor", and hold down the right trigger to draw Rainbow Lines and the left trigger to erase Rainbow Lines.
|Kirby||Four young heroes on a journey through Distortia. They possess the ability to copy the skills of enemies.|
|Chuchu||This octopus girl is one of the Animal Friends who help the Kirbies when times get desperate.|
|Coo||An owl, and one of the Animal Friends who help the Kirbies when times get desperate.|
|Rick||When in doubt, ride a giant hamster. What's the worst that could happen?|
|Kine||Also known as "The Fish Who Loved Me", he has no problem with Kirbies riding the waves on his back.|
|Dimensia||A (slightly) crazy jester who rules over Distortia. He is characterised by his mortal hatred for Kirbies.|
|Aquarene||A water lizard who serves Dimensia. He travels around Distortia on his master's command in order to intercept the Kirbies.|
|Dimensia's Statue||A statue constructed by Dimensia, representing Kirby's adventures in a sort of mural. When it comes to life, it becomes many formidable foes.|
Kirby was going on a typical stroll through Dream Land, just as any other day went by. Flying on gliders, fishing, and other fun activities were more than enough to wear him out. On his way home, however, he stumbled across a mysterious figure that looked suspiciously like Dark Meta Knight. The two began to duel - but Kirby couldn't win. When he regained consciousness, he discovered he had been split into four, and was lost in a realm entitled Distortia...
On the player's journey through Distortia, Kirby cannot inhale nor float. In order to gain a Copy Ability, he must be struck by an attack that corresponds to that Copy Ability, or use a Copy Essence. The player can also use the stylus to draw paths for Kirby to take, walls to block attacks, and so on and so on.
- Circle Pad: Walk. Tap twice to dash.
- A: Jump
- B: Attack
- Y: Call a helper. If you have a helper, this will instead either throw your Copy Ability out as an item or, if you don't have an ability, turn the helper into an item.
- X: Start going with an animal friend/stop going with an animal friend.
- Select: Discard ability.
- Start: Pause
- R: Guard. Use Circle Pad whilst guarding to dodge.
- Stylus: Create Rainbow Lines. Erase Rainbow Lines by holding down L and drawing over them with the stylus.
Unlike other Kirby games, where each world only has one boss, starting from Sweet Seaside several boss stages may appear in the worlds.
In addition to the worlds listed here, a "Tutorial World" appears whenever you start a new Save File. This world consists of a single cloudy stage and has no bosses whatsoever.
|Minty Meadow||1||The first destination in Distortia is a meadow of plains, forests and a cloudy sky. You can also expect some caves along the way.||Five||
|Coconut Castle||2||A haunted castle complete with spooky skies and mysterious grassy grounds. Look out for ghosts on the way!||Five||
|Sweet Seaside||3||A seaside area packed with water. Keep a close eye out for underground caverns, too.||Six||
|Creamy Caves||4||Deep in these caves, you can expect to see some icy and underwater areas, and even a whole underground factory!||Six||
|Ice Cream Icelands||5||Frost-covered fun, complete with a little bit of industrial works here and there, you're bound to have a great time exploring this place!||Five||
|Vanilla Volcano||6||Where ice and fire meet! Icy areas on your climb up a treacherous volcano is just the first sign of madness in this mysterious world!||Six||
|Slushie Skies||7||Up in the air, you'll have to be careful! It's an aerial world with almost no land, complete with caves sneaking their way in!||Five||
|Dairy Dimension||8||Deep in space, you have to venture to fight Dark Meta Knight, Meta Knight's spooky doppelgänger and the right-hand man of Dimensia!||Six||
|Dimensia's Tower||9||The personal fortress of the mastermind Dimensia, combining caves, castles and factories into one petrifying zone of madness!||Ten||
|World X||X||This nostalgic realm bears the properties of the original Kirby's Dream Land. Relive the past in this wondrous world!||Five||
|World DX||DX||A void bearing all the elements of life. Insanity binds in the most magical way, here in the final destination of Distortia!||Six||
Note that World DX cannot appear in Extra Mode.
When struck by a special attack from certain enemies, Kirby will gain a Copy Ability corresponding to that attack. While you have a Copy Ability, you can press Y to exchange that Copy Ability for a Helper.

Bonus Game: Kirby's Rhythm Quest
There are four stages here. The player is constantly walking along the stage, and must press A to Jump and B to attack. A gauge will appear with a cursor moving left and right along it. B will stop the cursor and launch an attack.
Stop the cursor in a red area to launch a Red Attack. The attack you launch is random, and the damage is multiplied by Kirby's level.
- Kirby punches, launching a fireball. 20 damage.
- Kirby punches and kicks, releasing a shockwave. 30 damage.
- Kirby jumps, sending a shockwave along the ground. 25 damage.
- Kirby rushes forwards, damaging enemies in his path. 20 damage.
Stop the cursor in an orange area to launch an Orange Attack. Again, the attack you launch is random, and the damage is multiplied by Kirby's level.
- Kirby shoots a laser from his Laser Headgear. 50 damage.
- Kirby swings a flaming hammer, releasing a shockwave. 40 damage.
- Kirby spins rapidly, shooting a tornado forwards. 45 damage.
- Kirby turns into a wheel and rushes forwards. 40 damage.
Stop the cursor in a pink area to launch a special Pink Attack. Once again, the attack you launch is random, and the damage is multiplied by Kirby's level. Additionally, using a Pink Attack will restore a small amount of HP.
- Kirby sends a miniature, wind-up Dyna Blade flying forwards, damaging enemies in its path. 95 damage.
- Kirby deploys a Tankbot which drives forwards. 80 damage.
- Kirby deploys a Tankbot with boxing gloves which drives forwards. 100 damage.
- Three Gators appear and rush forwards. 85 damage.
- Kirby sports Kabuki Attire and sends a line of lightning bolts forwards. 95 damage.
- Kirby consumes Superspicy Curry and shoots a massive fireball. 90 damage.
- Kirby swings Galaxia, releasing a rainbow-coloured shockwave. 100 damage.
Defeating enemies earns the player EXP, which can be used to level up (maximum level 5). The damage dealt by Kirby's attacks is multiplied by his level. Each of four stages has three themes...
- Stage 1: Plains, Swamp, Castle
- Stage 2: Desert, Cavern, Mechanical
- Stage 3: Beach, Ice Fields, Spaceship
- Stage 4: Space
Enemies appear randomly in the stages and must be defeated or avoided (although for the sake of collecting EXP, killing them is preferable). You have 100 health which is depleted when you're attacked, and Game Over occurs if you run out of health. At the end, a boss is fought, and must be defeated. The battle revolves around turns - you must consistently use attacks to beat him. In boss battles, blue sections appear on the gauge, and stopping the gauge there causes the boss to attack you. Your health in boss battles is 100 times your Level.
Chef Kawasaki, Max Flexer and Chef Shiitake also appear as "mini-bosses". You must defeat them before they defeat you. Once you defeat them, your health will be fully restored.
- Beetle's pause menu description is a reference to the Pokemon Heracross, which can be seen as a silhouette in the background of the Copy Ability's description.
- The Animal Friend abilities for UFO are based on various PSI Abilities from the EarthBound/Mother Series.
- ESP, a copy ability from the upcoming "Kirby: Planet Robobot", appears in this game under the name of "Psychic".
- Jet, Psychic, Wheel and Doctor got "thrown into the game at the last minute", according to the developers. As such, these abilities are incompatible with Animal Friends.
