The coolest thing about Kirby has always been his ability to suck in his enemies and absorb their powers. And the newest game in the series, Kirby: Triple Deluxe, definitely has plenty of that.

In Triple Deluxe Kirby now has five new copy abilities: sniper, beetle, circus, bell, and, my personal favorite, hypernova. And that’s in addition to the 21 others that are returning from other games.

To see how these new abilities look 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.
