    Story

    Summer is returning to the Kirby Cafe. Thinking of the warmer months, Chef Kawasaki has created a special menu! As a Waddle Dee, filled with great excitement, wandered through the forest…it saw tons of lush, ripe peaches. 

     

    “Huh? That pink, round peach reminds me of something…” 

     

    Then came Kirby, who was looking forward to the summer menu more than anyone else. 

     

    “Ah, that’s right! The peach looks just like Kirby!”

     

    Happy to have solved the riddle, Kirby smiled brightly at Waddle Dee. Gazing at this glorious summer scene with tons of juicy peaches ready to be eaten, he couldn’t help but imagine tons of tasty treats! Peach parfait, sparkling soda, blue jelly sparkling like the ocean…not wanting to forget these ideas, Kirby and Waddle Dee gathered the peaches and began cooking.

     

    Please come and enjoy this summer with Kirby and his friends under the dazzling sunshine!
