Genre Racing
Series Kirby Series

A Warp Star racing game across Dream Land starring Kirby. Your Warp Star automatically accelerates, so you only have to steer and boost around the tracks.

As well as the main racing game, there's a top-down racing game, and a City Trial mode, where you have to power up your star to take part in a series of minigames.

Instead of winning cups, each game mode has over 100 challenges that you have to complete, unlocking new Warp Stars, playable characters and events. As you complete them, the criteria for more challenges become visible.
