NXpress Nintendo Podcast 297: Kirby’s Dream Buffet Extravaganza!



Kirby's Dream Buffetqq

It’s time to talk about Kirby, so you know what that means: sweet treats, cute characters, and threats of physical violence. This week on the NXpress Nintendo PodcastCameron DaxonMarc Kaliroff, and Campbell Gill are joined by that wonderful force of chaos, Eliza from Kirby Informer, to discuss all things Kirby’s Dream Buffet! Everyone’s favorite pink puff keeps his 30th anniversary celebration rolling with a brand-new spinoff, but can it really follow up on the magnificence of Forgotten Land?

The short answer is yes, yes it can–Kirby’s Dream Buffet is not only an addictive multiplayer bash, but it’s intense enough to send the whole NXpress crew into absolute insanity. Eliza and Marc share their in-depth Kirby expertise to analyze exactly what makes this latest spinoff work so well–although, at the end of the day, the real key to Dream Buffet’s success is to have a chonky Kirby. Competitive, accessible, strategic, and adorable–Dream Buffet is all these and more! Could this even be the successor to Kirby Air Ride we’ve been waiting for? The hosts discuss all this, and more–so, so much more.

Between all the Kirby excitement, Cameron also squeezes in an indie spotlight on the physical-only Demon Throttle, a quirky arcade title held back by its somewhat bizarre limited release. And what better way to cap off this unhinged episode than by duking it out in a Dream Buffet battle to end them all–all caught live in the recording, a first for the show! Don’t miss this piece of groundbreaking NXpress history!
