Return of the King
King DeDeDe is one of those characters that I just loved, even though I was apparently playing him wrong. Apparently you’re supposed to just chain-grab with him a lot. Me? I had fun throwing his hammer around and posing for the camera. Silly me, I guess?
Anyhow, The King in Red is back with better visual fidelity, animations, and an improved rocket hammer! Hopefully we’ll see him get a few gameplay changes like Bowser, who is now faster on his feet and able to throw out sweet drop-kicks. I’m not saying DeDeDe needs too much balance change, but it would be odd for him to remain the heaviest character when other big guys get so much more spring in their step.
Not much is known about this expressive combatant from the Kirby series in terms of changes. At present we’ll just assume he’s a better looking version of himself from Brawl.
What do you think, though? Are you glad to hear DeDeDe’s right back at ya? Anybody else you’re looking forward to? Leave a note in the comments below!
