Kirby’s Blowout Blast

Today, Nintendo uploaded the third Tips and Tricks video for Kirby’s Blowout Blast. This one gives some tips about the boss battles found in the game:

  • Kracko: try jumping while spitting whatever you just inhaled, or you may completely miss your target! Don’t forget you can also evade some of his attacks simply by kneeling down;
  • Lololo: before he even begins to move, inhale the star blocks near him to have something to spit at him right from the beginning! If your timing is right, you could defeat him pretty fast!
  • King Dedede: instead of trying to attack him right away, it may be a good idea to simply wait until he’s done with his series of attack to fight back. Also, when he’s doing his giant inhaling attack is the right time to attack;
  • Lololo & Lalala: try jumping over the gaps on the map, in order to land right behind the two bosses. That way, you can inhale the block they’re pushing around and spit it back at ’em!
  • Kracko Jr.: don’t forget you can jump even after inhaling something;
  • Giant King Dedede: after he’s done his hammer attack, hurry up to inhale all the stars and spit back at him all at once, for maximum damage!
