Kirby is now a playable character in Sinnoh in Pokémon BDSP
The players of Pokemon They usually receive all kinds of rewards and surprises, but this time, Kirby is the new unexpected surprise for the players of Pokémon BDSP.
That’s right, the creation of the legendary masahiro sakurai and one of the iconic mascots of Nintendohas made its unexpected first appearance in one of the Pokémon games, something that had only officially happened with Pokémon in the Super Smash Bros. games.
Now let’s remember that Kirbyhas many similarities to Ditto. Both are small pink creatures that speak incomprehensible languages, copy the abilities, movements and appearances of their opponents, even the power of God in their universe (in the case of Ditto transforming into Arceus, of course).
So a cross between the two franchises would sound interesting, Kirby could fit right in between Mr. Mime and Pikachu. But until that day comes (if it ever comes), a fan and developer is working on a mod for Pokemon BDSP that brings Kirby to the Gen 4 remake as a fully playable character.
Yes, unexpectedly for gamers, the developer of Pokemon Luminescent and notable modder, yisunohas been posting images of his current BDSP project for most of March 2023, and on March 4, Yisuno posted: “Kirby in Pokemon BDSP mod is actually possible”, which excited players who wanted more of the Gen 4 remakes.
The mod allows players to walk the world as Kirby and use the pink monster in battle. According to the developer’s tweets, Kirby’s 3D model replaces Arceus, and giving Kirby a different plate will change his form (or copy ability). This will allow Kirby to have up to 18 different forms.
This Kirby mod has a ton of animations, from idle movements to unique battle animations. Additionally, Yisuno also added Kirby’s ability to transform into a car, just like in the most recent game.Kirby and the Forgotten Land.
Unfortunately, this mod is not available yet, but in a March 11 reply, its developer commented, that they plan to make the mod publicly available and eventually they will do a full romhack with the assets. Let’s hope the wait isn’t so long.
