Play Nintendo’s top five tips—one per game mode!—for the Kirby: Planet Robobot game.


ESRB Rating: Everyone with Mild Cartoon Violence

Kirby finds himself facing down enemy invaders in Kirby: Planet Robobot.

Lucky for the little pink puffball, he’s got a powerful way to fight them—his hi-tech Robobot Armor! But there’s more to this game than Story Mode. There are five different modes in the Kirby: Planet Robobot game, and we’ve got a super-helpful tip for each one.


Story Mode

Tip: Follow the rainbow for hidden clues


You can collect tons of hidden stickers in Story Mode, then use them to decorate Kirby’s Robobot Armor. There are special stickers known as Rare stickers that can be especially hard to find. But the in-game sticker screen holds special clues on how to find them. If you tap on a box with a shimmering rainbow, you’ll see which stage that sticker is hidden on!


 Meta Knightmare Returns

Tip: You can use an amiibo figure to gain healing items


Players take on the role of the mysterious Meta Knight for this time-attack mode, where the goal is to defeat as many enemies as possible. If you have a compatible amiibo*, you can tap it in this mode to gain a recovery item, like a Maxim Tomato.


The Arena

Tip: The Arena’s final form


In this mode, players choose a Copy Ability, then try to defeat every boss in the game as fast as possible. The regular Arena Mode unlocks after Story Mode has been completed, but this isn’t the Arena’s final form. You can try to unlock that by increasing your completion percentage.


Kirby 3D Rumble

Tip: You can make bigger star bullets


Kirby 3D Rumble is a fast-paced puzzle mode where players can use star bullets to defeat enemies on a 3D stage. You can create a star bullet by inhaling an enemy, then spitting it out. But if you inhale three enemies at once, you can create a bigger star bullet—and that means more points!


Team Kirby Clash

Tip: You can review the moves


You can team up with three other players** or CPUs to take down tough bosses in this brawler. There are four roles to choose from—Dr. Healmore, Sword Knight, Hammer Lord, or Beam Mage—and each one has unique abilities. You can press the Start button to review your role’s move list before battle.
