Sucking is usually a bad thing—unless of course you’re playing Kirby.

The newest Kirby game, Kirby: Triple Deluxe, came out in Japan on the 3DS earlier this month. It is full of all the goodness you’ve come to expect when platforming. As everyone’s favorite pink puffball, you float around, suck in enemies, copy their powers, and leave a path of gluttonous destruction in your wake.


Of course, there are plenty of new things, too—like new copy abilities, a new story, and level design built around moving between the foreground and background.

To see how it all looks in action, check out the video above.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe was released on January 11, 2014, in Japan for the Nintendo 3DS. It is scheduled for a Western release sometime in 2014.
