"We say this every time, but the studio and I had to face a lot of difficulties during the development of Kirby: Star Allies, "said game director Shinya Kumazaki in an interview in the new artbook.

" Sometimes these projects turn out to be complicated, but Star Allies has overcome obstacles and has become a title that can offer so much. "

" With the release of the game we have finally brought these side scrolling experiences back to consoles, also adding cooperative multiplayer for fans who have been waiting for it for a long time: another goal rays oil, which the team is proud of. "

" Now, finally, we can move to the next stage! I experiment with new ideas every day, discussing with my colleagues where to bring the Kirby series. All together we are therefore deciding what our future will be. "

HAL Laboratory Looking Forward To Sharing Kirby's 'Next Phase' With Fans

Nintendo's pink puffball Kirby hasn't been sighted since the surprise release of Kirby Fighters 2 on the Switch last year.

This doesn't necessarily mean HAL Laboratory has forgotten about him, though. Following on from an interview late last year, when the company teased new games, merchandise and more in the future - Kirby Star Allies director, Shinyu Kumazaki, has now touched on the 'next phase' of the series.

With Kirby Star Allies support now complete, the team is busy 'planning for the next stage' of Kirby's future. Here's a bit of insight from Kumazaki about what's currently going on at the Kirby HQ, courtesy of a translation from Nintendo Everything:

'And now, finally, we can move on to the next phase! I still try new things at work every day, talking with my colleagues about where to take the [Kirby] series next. Together with them, even if only to please a single fan, we’re planning for the next stage of our future. The team is a culmination of the best aspects of the Kirby franchise, and we hope you’ll look forward to what we have coming next.”

Kirby's development team also previously spoke about how they wanted the next big project to be the 'pinnacle of Kirby games' and to create something that exceeds the games in the series before it.
