Nintendo announced the remaster of one of its Wii games: Kirby’s Return to Dream Land. The remaster launches for Switch on February 24, with pre-orders opening today.

As is usual for Kirby, it’s a platforming title in which he can copy the abilities of enemies. It will feature several new subgames and at least one new copy ability. The game now has 4-player co-op platforming, with different players having different Kirby copy abilities.

Kirby’s having something of a renaissance this year, on his 30th anniversary. Nintendo launched Kirby and the Forgotten Land, which sold a respectable 4 million copies as of the last report. They also released Kirby’s Dream Buffet, a party game starring multiple Kirbys. In addition to the new games, Nintendo also launched several older Kirby titles on Nintendo Switch Online.
