Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition is now available, celebrating the twentieth anniversary of the iconic pink marshmallow. The finals details for the Wii exclusive are now finalized and fans of the franchise can now see what's included in the package in all of its splendor. Out of a total of 22 games, the Dream Collection takes Kirby's six (debatably) best, classic adventures and bundles them together. It's like Putting Kirby through a juicer to create one very strong, pink drink.
Here's everything that's included in Kirby's Dream Collection, including the six games and more:
- Kirby’s Dream Land (originally released for Game Boy in 1992)
- Kirby’s Adventure (originally released for NES™ in 1993)
- Kirby’s Dream Land 2 (originally released for Game Boy in 1995)
- Kirby’s Super Star (originally released for Super NES in 1996)
- Kirby’s Dream Land 3 (originally released for Super NES in 1997)
- Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (originally released for the Nintendo 64 system in 2000)
- “New Challenge Stages,” a new set of Challenge Stages in the style of those found in Kirby’s Return to Dream Land (originally released for the Wii system in 2011)
- Kirby’s History, an interactive timeline that players can use to browse classic box art, game footage and milestones from throughout Kirby’s 20-year career — all with the ability to jump straight from the timeline into a game
- A special audio CD containing 45 memorable tracks (more than an hour’s worth of music) from across Kirby’s career, including alternate versions of three classic Kirby themes
- Kirby’s 20th Anniversary Celebration Book, which contains fascinating character information and illustrations, including early Kirby concept artwork
Again, Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition became available on September 16, exclusively for the Nintendo Wii, for the price of $39.99. Hopefully the collection's release is just a precursor to more exciting Kirby news. I doubt I'm alone in hoping for a Wii U Kirby title, perhaps a follow-up to Epic Yarn, or maybe something as simple as a Kirby level in Nintendo Land.
