Nintendo confirm that Qbby's last\u00a0adventure,\u00a0BYE-BYE BOXBOY!, will be released on March 23, 2017. We knew this day would come but that doesn't make it any less upsetting. Nintendo's best new character, Qbby, will be making his final appearance at the end of March with the release of\u00a0BYE-BYE BOXBOY! Qbby leapt into our hearts in 2015's BOXBOY, a remarkably inventive, yet very simple,\u00a0puzzle platform game that drew comparisons with the likes Valve's masterpiece,\u00a0Portal. Last year\u00a0HAL Laboratory released the sequel, BOXBOXBOY! which added more bells and whistles,without diluting the core mechanics that make the series so special. BYE-BYE BOXBOY! appears to be Qbby's grandest adventure yet, with 180 levels and four new planets to explore. The game also introduces the\u00a0Qbabies, small cube like creature in need of Qbby's help. The game is the first in the series to feature Amiibo\u00a0compatibility. Players can use Kirby Collection Amiibo figures to unlock Kirby, Meta Knight, Waddle Dee and\u00a0King Dedede\u00a0costumes. There's no news on whether the adorable Qbby Amiibo, released in\u00a0Japan last year, will make it to the\u00a0West. Players with game data from the first two\u00a0BOX BOY titles can unlock both a Qucy costume plus\u00a0the option to play the game using dot-matrix graphics that recalls the\u00a0screen display\u00a0of the original Game Boy. A demo for BYE-BYE BOXBOY! is also released on the Nintendo eShop today that features a sample of levels from all three games. We don't imagine that we've seen the last of Qbby. A Switch version compiling all three titles\u00a0seems a certainty. Failing that, we'll settle for a\u00a0BOXBOY RISES return in a few years. BYE-BYE BOXBOY!\u00a0will be released on the Nintendo 3DS eShop\u00a0on March 23, priced \u00a34.49\/\u20ac4.99. Want to get in on the eShop action? Pick up a Nintendo 3DS from Amazon now.
