In addition to Daroach and Dark Meta Knight making their entrance with the second free update, there is, in fact, another Dream Friend duo ready to enter the spotlight: a pair whose presence has been long missed, it’s Adeleine & Ribbon from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards!

Adeleine has the ability to bring anything that she paints to life, and Ribbon the fairy possesses a mysterious power that allows her to fly. These two have a really dedicated, long-time fanbase. Back in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, they played an important role in the story, but you weren’t able to control them yourself. Now that they’ve become Dream Friends, they can be player-controlled for the first time ever!

Adeleine and Ribbon fight using their unique powers, occasionally joining forces. Adeleine relies on the power of her paintings to attack. It’s far more potent than Kirby’s Artist Copy Ability, so expect to see some moves that will really color you impressed. More details on that later!

And then there’s Ribbon. She shares her power with Adeleine so they can glide through the air together. Sometimes they even team up to unleash a combined attack!

Just like in the original game, they don’t have much in the way of stamina, which can make their adventure particularly tough. Still, they’re an interesting duo – all it takes is a few brush strokes to turn the battle around! With the power to create all sorts of paintings and a unique ability that stands apart from the rest, they really are a true “dream” friend.

What’s more, if you play with Adeleine & Ribbon as Guest Stars after completing the main story, you’ll get to take on brand-new maps! Have fun painting your way through classic Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards stages specially arranged for Kirby Star Allies. There’s a very memorable map at the end which fans may remember, so look forward to that!

New Dream Friends Daroach, Dark Meta Knight and Adeleine & Ribbon aside, the second free update also introduces plenty of new game elements.

The update will be available for download on July 27 – not long at all!

Jambuhbye for now!

...Huh. These days it pays to not get a game on kaunch day, sometimes. Thanks for sharing.
If you spend hours discussing politics or religion in a gaming or comics forum, congratulations, you have no life and you make everyone around you look smarter.

Good. Hopefully those new elements will put those "weh!!11 dis game lazy n boreeengg!!!!1111" comments to a rest.

On an unrelated note, I'm hoping this is the same case for Mario Tennis Aces on Camelot's end.
Bomberman deserves to be in Smash as a playable fighter. R.I.P. Miiverse 2012 - 2017. R.I.P. Miitomo 2016 - 2018.

The game needs some new levels and bosses.

I'm expecting a new game mode of some sort

I've been hoping for another world or two, maybe with a silly self-contained plot about Kirby's birthday, but they'd probably save that for wave 3

At least you don't have to pay for the characters, those complaining need to take that into account and know this, No one complained when Might Gunvolt Burst added new characters but no new stages neither did Blaster Master Zero.

Could be. There was an oddly large gap between this update and the last.

Cool. Did they also update to add the missing 30 FPS?
Consoles shouldn't be about 480p, 720p, 1080p or the prettiest slideshow.
They're about a magical box that outputs wonderful streams of 60 images per second.
