Nintendo's pink puffball protagonist teams up with Meta Knight, King Dedede, and Waddle Dee for his second starring role on Wii. Play alone or together with up to three friends as you attempt to retrieve pieces of an alien spaceship that has crashed and stranded its distressed pilot on Planet Pop Star. To help the alien fix his vessel, Kirby sets off on an adventure that will rely on his distinctive "copy ability" to inhale, spit, and transform.
Kirby's acquired powers are represented by hats, each indicating the types of abilities he can use. A green cap lets him wield a sword like Link, for example, while a jester hat grants Kirby the power to blast energy from a wand. Kirby can also activate temporary powers by inhaling enemies that glow. Two collectibles found in each side-scrolling level come in the form of Ability Stars, left behind by defeated enemies, and Point Stars, which will enhance your score. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
