Fans of Kirby will undoubtedly be aware that 2012 marks the year of the pink puff-ball’s 20th anniversary, and to celebrate the occasion, Nintendo are releasing a limited edition compilation game for Wii (much akin to Super Mario All-Stars).
While Super Mario All-Stars for Wii played host to the Super Nintendo remakes of Super Mario Bros. 1-3 and The Lost Levels, the Kirby 20th Anniversary Compilation is set to include six games, from the Kirby’s Dream Land trilogy to the first polygonal entry in the long-running series – Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.
Here’s the full list of games to be included in the compilation, alongside a soundtrack CD and booklet:
- Kirby’s Dream Land (Game Boy)
- Kirby’s Dream Land 2 (Game Boy)
- Kirby’s Dream Land 3 (SNES)
- Kirby’s Adventure (NES)
- Kirby Super Star (SNES)
- Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (N64)
Are you big enough a fan of the series to pick up the compilation when it arrives on Wii later this year, or are you content in downloading the games from Nintendo’s Virtual Console services on Wii and 3DS?
