Kirby 20th Anniversary Collection detailed for North America

Kirby 20th Anniversary Logo

Back in April, Nintendo announced that the their lovable pink puffball, Kirby, would be receiving his own game collection to commemorate the character’s 20th anniversary (Side note: Nintendo, just so you know, you never did acknowledge the Metroid series’ 25th anniversary last year. Just saying. But, I digress). Now, the full details of  this Wii-exclusive collection have been revealed. A total of six Kirby games will grace the anniversary package and is currently scheduled to ship this September in North America. Titled Kirby’s Dream Collection: Special Edition (Now, that’s a mouthful), the collection of games will span from Kirby’s debut on the Game Boy all the way to Crystal Shards on the Nintendo 64. In addition, a soundtrack CD and booklet will be included.

These are the following Kirby games that will be included:

  • Kirby’s Dream Land (Game Boy)
  • Kirby’s Adventure (NES)
  • Kirby’s Dream Land 2 (Game Boy)
  • Kirby Super Star (SNES)
  • Kirby’s Dream Land 3 (SNES)
  • Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (N64)


Is it wrong that I’m excited to even consider buying this collection solely because of one of my favorite Game Boy titles, Kirby’s Dream Land 2?
