With the release of Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe on Nintendo Switch, it was only a matter of time before fans would be combing through the remaster of Kirby's classic Wii adventure for new additions and changes from the original release. Like the previous mainline Kirby games, Return to Dream Land Deluxe features a handful of new statues Kirby can transform into when using the Stone copy ability.
Below we have gathered and explained all three of the new stone transformations players can come across as they flatten enemies and solve puzzles!
Magolor On The Lor Starcutter
The first new stone transformation that Kirby can model into in Return to Dream Land Deluxe is Magolor riding on the deck of his iconic ship, the Lor Starcutter. While his ship has been scaled down to an adorable miniature size, Magolor and the Lor Starcutter have kept all their details intact. The base of the statue is also the same golden gear Energy Spheres Kirby and friends collect on their journey to help rebuild the cosmo traveling ship.
Forgotten Land's Car Mouth Kirby
At first glance, this stone transformation seemingly is just a model of Car Mouth Kirby (Carby!) from Kirby and the Forgotten Land. If you closely examine the statue though, Kirby fans will notice that this stone transformation is actually based on the Gotcha Capsules players can collect from the game. While the statue is striking the same exact pose and has the same base shape as the original Gotcha Capsule model, the star rarity pattern seen in the Forgotten Land’s toy is not present here. Either way, it's still Carby looking as cool as ever!
Kirby From Dream Buffet
Finally, the last new stone transformation that appears in Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe is based on the key art and gameplay of 2022's spinoff Kirby’s Dream Buffet. This stone iteration of a feasted Kirby still has some cream around his mouth and sits alongside two strawberries. Kirby is noticeably wearing Dream Buffet’s Whipped Cream costume and the statue's base has been designed to look like a serving plate—how adorable and fitting!
