Kirby: Star Essence Cunundrum is a Kirby game for the Nintendo Wii U that has a twist comparable to Super Mario Galaxy or Super Mario 64. Just like Kirby 64, Kirby can not float forever. 


Kirby is enjoying his meal of Chocolate when a light orb comes up to him, and tells him that Planet Popstar is in great danger, and the core of Popstar, has been "stolen". The orb notes this and ends up saying to just collect the stars that keep Popstar the way it is, similiar to the Star Rod, but the entire planet could be ruined, as well as the galaxy.

Kirby takes to the stars, but his Warp Star breaks and the pieces fall onto another "star". Another light orb with a green glow wakes Kirby up, and tells Kirby that to get anywhere, he'll need to find six pieces of his warp star to get to space again. 

After the pieces are found, Kirby discovers that this place was made into a wasteland, and can made better eventually. He promises to help this star while assisting his own. This place which is called Orblight Star will later be able to help Kirby reach other areas of the game. 


Kirby can move in a 3D space, and float 6 times, with one jump combined, for 7 jumps all together. Copy Abilities are present as well, and some are needed to collect Core-Stars on the Planet Stars. Kirby has a Health Bar, like some recent games.
