Looks cool but I hate Nintendo tax. Granted their games are good quality but I just can't understand the business model. At £20 they'd sell many orders of magnitude more. That said, I'll buy it eventually, love a bit of Kirby
I don't know if I should get this game. As I wouldn't be playing with friends haven't a clue what it's like single player

Nintendo tax at £40? This is below the standard price for a new release top tier console game? Not like you can get it cheaper on another console.

Same. If it was a single player Kirby I'd be snapping it up at this price, but until I hear more about the single player experience on this I'm holding off
£40 is rrp and no reviews of game. Last kirby game flopped.

It's Kirby. Not a popular franchise or particularly good games. Amazed it's still going after all these years, has always lacked quality. This game should be better than Paintbrush was, but can't imagine many will be daft enough to pay £40. Predict sub £30 prices within a month of release.

Lacked quality? The top 3ds games are brilliant.

​Indeed but I wouldn't call it a top tier game. Platform is irrelevant too, not sure what your point is really. Many platform exclusive games are discounted or sold for lower rrp at launch. My point is that nintendo rarely discount their titles and would sell more if they did. They're slowly cottoning on and doing digital sales but still underwhelming. Each to their own anyway, enjoy if you pick it up!

I rather wait a year or two than spend £40 on something that's not worth more than £15-20 to me.

This isn't even close to top tier. Nintendo probably used 1/6 of the budget used on developing Super Mario Odyssey.
£39.99 at Smyth's, if you hate Amazon

Totally agree the top 3DS games are brilliant, but none of them are Kirby games.

Perhaps sub 30 for v.1. In a few years v.3 will be same price

It's a better series and more established series than something like Yoshi.
So what is this? Some kind of smash bros platformer?
Looks good fun, me and my boy will put plenty of hours into it.
Majority of Kirby games have sold and reviewed really well. Seems like this will be exactly that too

​Only if you're stupid enough to buy day one and don't shop around. I bought swbf2 off a mate a week after launch for £20
Kirby games are definitely not my cup of tea. They suited the 3ds better, so it might do well on the switch.

I really want the Toejam and Earl game to be released asap, just for the nostalgia. I hope Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night will be a great game on the Switch (something even remotely close to Castlevania symphony of the night would be amazing).

That's not 'shopping around', that's just having a stupid mate
I heard that they're going to reduce the price of this next week, by a lot. SO I have to vote this one Cold.

Anyone else get shafted on the Amazon delivery?

Delayed!

Anyone else get shafted on the Amazon delivery?Delayed!


Yeah, I have also had the delay email. I am going to make my complaint with amazon as although they are giving me the right to cancel I no longer have the option to get it today at the current price. If I had known that there would be a delay before the release then I would have looked for an alternative retailer.
i did, what is prime for again
A few people seemed to have received £5. Not me. I got a months prime, an extension to a service that only partly works. Have asked if they can give me digital for the same price.
they havent given me anything and it still says its coming at 8pm tonight which i find hard to believe

I contacted them and have been credited £5, so i think you should try them again. My order has now been dispatched and will arrive tomorrow apparently.

what did you say

what did you say


Just basically said that I have been a long time subscriber of prime and that the delay email was very short notice stating that if I had known there was going to be a delay before release date then I could have looked for an alternative retailer, therefore due to the delay there are no other retailers selling the game at this price currently.
