Kirby Triple Deluxe TV commercial screams epic with Verdi’s Requiem


If reworked, Kirby-themed lyrics to ‘Dies Irae’ from Verdi’s Requiem aren’t enough to sway you toward picking up the 3DS exclusive, I’m not sure what will.

You’ll never hear what has become one of the composer’s signature pieces in the same way, amid chants of ‘Hypernova’ and ‘Sayonara’ among lyrics that describe his new abilities. It certainly grabs your attention, which is surely what Nintendo of America were aiming for.

Kirby Triple Deluxe releases across North America on May 2nd, and Europe on May 16th.
