Kirby Air Ride or カービィのエアライド (Kābī no Ea Raido, meaning Kirby's Air Ride) in Japan is a spin-off Kirby game released for the Nintendo GameCube in 2003. It is a 3D racing game featuring three modes: Air Ride, Top Ride, and City Trial, each unique to one another. The game features a very simplistic control scheme, which involves (primarily) only the A Button and the Control Stick. The C-Stick adjusts the camera angle and the D-Pad zooms in/out on Kirby. Alternative controls are available, i.e. using the L and R Buttons for boosting.
