Kirby Fighters 2 is an excellent little fighting game that has oodles and oodles of charm going for it. Something else going for it is that it captures the local multiplayer magic of the early-era Smash Bros. that I do think has been lost a little in the bloat of modern Smash.
So in this video, I reminisce about what I loved of those original Smash Bros. titles, and why I think Kirby Fighters 2 may well be a deliberate attempt by Nintendo to give the nostalgic that experience, even as they spin Smash Bros. itself into something ever-more massive.
Let me know what you think in the comments!
