Nintendo releases new information on its upcoming Kirby racing game for the GameCube.
At its pre-E3 press conference this morning, Nintendo released new information on Kirby Air Ride. Essentially a racing game, Kirby Air Ride will feature three distinct gameplay modes in which you'll be able to compete with up to three friends. In addition to the 3D racing action of the game's air ride mode, you'll be able to enjoy 2D racing in the top ride mode and a power-up-based tournament battle of sorts in the city trial mode. During races, you'll be able to steal enemy abilities using a single button, although it's not yet clear what those abilities will be.
