Now this is a colorful surprise! Kirby is on his way to the Nintendo Switch sometime in 2018, and he's bringing along several buddies. His newest ability apparently lets him befriend and recruit up to three enemies, who become teammates as Kirby puffs and munches his way through Dreamland. I'd bet good money that this mechanic is tied to a co-op mode too.
Kirby has been showing up in a number of great 3DS platformers over the past few years but I'm tickled pink-pun very much intended--that the puffball is making the leap to Switch, and relatively early in the console's lifespan.
