Nintendo announced a new side-scrolling Kirby game for its portable 3DS system during its latest Nintendo Direct today.

A short video (which you can watch below) shows Kirby doing his usual thing of eating his enemies and stealing their powers. Kirby also jumped between foreground and background sections of levels, similar to Donkey Kong Country Returns.

The new game currently has no official title. Nintendo says it’ll come out in 2014.
