Kirby has one of the simplest and most recognizable designs of any video game character. He’s just a round pink boy with big eyes and an irresistible face! We want to hug him and squeeze him. But for today’s new Kirby game, Kirby’s Dream Buffet, it looks like Kirby needed to be even rounder!
@ObscureKirby investigated Kirby’s character model in the party game, in which Kirby is featured in various food-related mini-games and challenges, and found that Kirby’s model is rounder than in his previous game, Kirby and the Forgotten Land . (Thanks, NintendoSoup!)
Counting arms, feet, and expressions, this biggest and best Kirby has 22,844 vertices! That’s over 7,000 more vertices than were used for his forgotten Land model. Even just counting the main body of it, there’s still a difference of just under 7,000 vertices, with Dream Buffet coming out on top.
That’s a batch Kirby’s, but it makes sense since there are plenty of treats Kirby needs to devour at Dream Buffet. That should help the little one roll a lot easier!
We’ll have a review of Kirby’s Dream Buffet soon, but in the meantime, why not check out last week’s trailer to see what kind of treats await you?
What do you think of Kirby’s roundest model? Do you think it’s still perfect? We certainly do. Head over to the comments to let us know!
