Just because Kirby only has one main game adventure on Switch, it doesn’t mean Kirby Star Allies is the only where Kirby is available as a playable character. In fact, there are three games where you can play as the loveable lump, whose stomach is never full and there are two additional titles that feature Kirby in some capacity, and we’re covering them all in this very guide.
Games we will not be including however, are those of the NES and SNES offerings, which subscribers of Nintendo Switch Online can access. With that technicality out of the wall, let’s go, Kirby!
