The newest Kirby game, Kirby Triple Star Deluxe came out on the Nintendo 3DS in Japan earlier this month, and its story mode is only the tip of the iceberg in what it has to offer.

There are tons of additions to Kirby’s classic gameplay. We've already looked at Kirby's new copy abilities, but that's just the beginning. Triple Deluxe comes with an up to four player versus mode, two unlockable battle arenas, a version of the game where you play as King Dedede (and fight against a new final boss) and even a rhythm mini-game where King Dedede must bounce from drum to drum—collecting coins in time with the beat.

To see what this all looks like 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.
