Super Kirby Clash updated to Version 1.0.1

Super Kirby Clash has gotten an update to Version 1.0.1. This update's patch notes state that “several issues have been fixed so that you can play the game comfortably.” Hopefully this means the Gem Apple giveaway that was supposed to take place will be restarted soon, as it was ended early due to a glitch.

What's this game all about?

To defeat bosses this wicked, it’ll take a whole team of Kirbys! In this free-to-start multiplayer action game, you can choose from four unique Roles and join up to three other players to take down tough bosses. Puff up your power by crafting weapons and spending materials at the shop to receive even MORE weapons, not to mention armor and items. Pass a Joy-Con™ controller to a friend to play locally, and if you have a Nintendo Switch Online membership, you can even play online!

Are you a Sword Hero? Hammer Lord? Beam Mage? Or Doctor Healmore?! No matter what, each mighty role offers up a unique way to play. Story Quest lets players team-up locally by sharing Joy-Con controllers, while Party Quest enables users to play together on one system, via local wireless, or online. Plus, tapping compatible amiibo™ figures/accessories will earn you extra fragments to help craft new gear! Are you ready? For Kirby, the answer is always fight and flight.

Kirby's Adventure supplemental info states that Kirby will purr if you pet him

These needs to be tested!

As a dedicated Nintendo fan, we're sure you know a lot about Kirby. You've studied up on all the changes and tweaks he's seen over the years, but we might have one tidbit you're unaware of. According to supplemental info originally released when Kirby's Adventure launched, Kirby will start to purr if you pet him! I don't think we've ever seen or heard that in any game, but it's not too late for HAL to change that!
