Nintendo’s Fall Guys-style party game, Kirby’s Dream Buffet, will be released next week on August 17.
The game was only announced last month with a summer 2022 release window but Nintendo confirmed via a tweet (below) that the game is already right around the corner.
A new trailer was also released alongside the release date announcement, and it shows off some of the costumes and colours available to unlock through playing the game. Players can also customise their starting podium after unlocking new options and even be granted new stages.

Alongside a handful of other new gameplay clips, the trailer also shows off the local multiplayer modes. Kirby’s Dream Buffet can be played both in split-screen and between multiple Nintendo Switches in the same room.
The game sees players race downhill against others either locally or online as they aim to eat as many strawberries as possible and pick up speed as they grow.
This will be the second Kirby game to be released for Nintendo Switch this year, with Kirby and the Forgotten Land having launched in March. Nintendo had promised a variety of other Kirby announcements were coming as the franchise is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2022, and Dream Buffet appears to be one of them.
