Invaders have mechanised Dream Land! To restore his home to its original form, Kirby must use the invaders’ technology against them with the new Robobot Armour, which can even destroy a variety of obstacles in his way. The Team Kirby Clash mode lets up to four players select one of four roles, and participate in a co-op quest to defeat foes while supporting their team. Completing a quest grants players experience points to level-up and grow more powerful.
The game is compatible with all amiibo figures, some of which give Kirby character-specific abilities. A new series of Kirby amiibo figures that includes Kirby, King Dedede, Meta Knight and Waddle Dee gives Kirby a copy ability specific to each character. Tapping the Kirby figure is the only way to get the UFO ability.
