|— How to go Hypernova • Kirby: Triple Deluxe website|
Hypernova Yourself is a web game in the Kirby series. It was developed and published by Nintendo in 2014 as a promotion for Kirby: Triple Deluxe. The game remained on the Kirby: Triple Deluxe microsite on Nintendo of America's website until November 2019, when all North American Kirby microsites were deleted.
Hypernova Yourself is a photograph editor. After uploading a photo (through a file upload or webcam) and placing it in the frame, the player is able to apply various effects to it. The photo is warped in the middle, has swirling wind patterns placed over it, and is set atop a rainbow background. One of three frames—a starry blue border, a dotted flower border, and a white star cluster—can be placed on the photo. Stamps can be added, and each piece can be rotated and resized. The stamp categories include:
|Baddies||Soarar, Glunk, Bronto Burt, Waddle Dee, Scarfy, Broom Hatter, Gordo, Shotzo, Beetley, Ringle, Hot Head, Blade Knight, Sparky, Moonja, Spynum, Clown Acrobot, Sir Kibble|
|Stars||Red star, purple star, turquoise star, yellow star, red shooting star, purple shooting star, turquoise shooting star, yellow shooting star|
Buttons below the tools and photo serve to ease the player's creation. The ? tab brings up short instructions. Clear deletes all added effects. The back arrow deletes the photo and effects; as a safeguard, it requires two clicks to be performed. Surprise me! places random effects.
When the player is content with his/her creation, the final button comes into play. Save! allows him/her to download the finished picture. The player is then prompted to share the image with others and play again. A Start Again button then appears.
|“||Now that you've gone Hypernova, don't forget to show your family and friends. Or, try it again!”|
