The Friend Bounce is a friend ability unique to the Spider Copy Ability. It seems the pink protagonist can use this power to help allies ascend quickly and attack enemies in the air. Keeping with the game’s adorable aesthetic, the trampoline takes the form of a heart-shaped web.
Kirby Star Allies for the Nintendo Switch will release in North America, Europe, and Japan on March 16, 2018. For more on the upcoming platformer, check out our previous article in which we detailed many of Kirby’s abilities and friends.
