Kirby is celebrating his 20th anniversary. To commemorate the occasion, Nintendo is releasing a brand new compilation for Wii later this year. Kirby's Dream Collection includes six games from the pink hero's storied career:

  • Kirby's Dream Land (GB)
  • Kirby's Adventure (NES)
  • Kirby's Dream Land 2 (GB)
  • Kirby's Super Star (SNES)
  • Kirby's Dream Land 3 (SNES)
  • Kirby 64: The Dream Shards (N64)

In addition, the collection will include bonus stages, based on Kirby's Return to Dream Land. Also, an interactive museum will reveal additional details on the franchise. Finally, the retail package will include a special book as well. While the compilation doesn't include any of the recent Wii games, it certainly sounds like a worthy package for Kirby fans.

      Nice! Looks like it's time to pick up a Wii for a Kirby fix.

        I'm going to have to say Kirby's Epic Yarn was some amusing fun too. The Wii's been good for that pink puffy punk.

          Epic Yarn and Kirby's Adventure are definitely on my list too.

              Kirby 64 made me sad :(, Nothing so far has quite recaptured the magic that was Kirby Super Star.

        It's not super challenging, but it's super cute and adorable and made me feel like a little kid.

      I wish I hadn't sold my Wii. It's a fun little gaming machine.

      Kirby is good to just dick around when bored, but the games have always been beyond easy

        They're great speed run games if you're into that sort of thing,

        Epic Yarn handled it pretty well - you can't ever die, but you have to avoid almost all damage to get a good rating for the level. Too bad the unlocks were dumb.

      That Kirby golf/puzzle/overhead game for the SNES was the best.

      The only problem with Nintendo properties is that they keep coming out on Wii and DS. :(

      They need to put out some new 2d Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Kid Icarus, and Kirby games on the Vita.

        I'm sure they'll do that right after Apple puts out OS X for regular PC's.

          With my luck, you're correct. Because I couldn't possibly care less about OS X on my PC, but I'd love to have Nintendo properties on a system that is both powerful and fun to use.

          So surely OS X will happen first. :(

            Nintendo properties on their hardware.

            What a concept!
