    • Play with a group – Get snacky with up to 4 players via local wireless or online.
    Delectable customization options
    • Find your sweet style – Dress Kirby in scrumptious costumes that look like Meta Knight, King Dedede, Elfilin, and more.
    • Add a dash of color – Customize Kirby with an array of different color options to help you start the race in style.
    • Top it off with treats – Decorate your own cake with treats that look like cookies, chocolates, and candies from the Kirby™ series of games.
    Power up with Copy Foods

    When you see a Food Box, roll through it to gain a Copy Food Ability. You might get a Turbo Burning boost from a Burning Pepper or a Hyper Tornado from Tornado Frosting!

    With simple controls and the chance for quick comebacks, these playful power-ups can help level the competition for younger players.
