I'm sure some of you know about this video but, is this going to be a Kirby game on th Wii or was it a canceled one on the GC?

Nintendo stated that development of the game has shifted over to the Wii. However, we've yet to see anything of the Wii version.

E3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



They were working on it for the GC. Most kirby games get canceled. Air ride was supposed to come out on the N64 and it came out on the GC.

Why do they get canceled? Mystery.

There actually was an Air Ride for N64, just it was japan-only

No, Kirby Air Ride was originally slated to be an N64 game, but got bumped up to GCN. The same thing happened to Dinosaur Planet, which later became Star Fox Adventures on the GCN. Likely the same thing is happening to this Kirby game; hopefully we'll see more at E3.

I'm not sure about Air Ride, but I do know that Animal Crossing came out on the N64 in Japan before it came to GC. So, it is possible.

The situation with AC was a bit different, though. It was released in Japan as Dōbutsu no Mori Plus (Animal Forest Plus) and had a number of extra features that weren't in the N64 version. That was then localized, since the Gamecube had just been released. Seeing as it took nearly a year for them to release it here, I can see why they never localized the N64 version version (which was released in early 2001 in Japan).

Anyway, an untitled Kirby game for the Wii keeps popping up in Nintendo's release lists, so clearly they are still working on it. They have never mentioned the game at all, but I think being on the release list several times is enough of a confirmation. We don't know anything about it, though, besides it being a Kirby game on the Wii. It is probably that same game in the trailer. They also moved Super Paper Mario and Bongo Blast to the Wii, so I'd be surprised if this project isn't that game. I'd imagine they changed the project quite a bit over the past few years, but we know it's coming.
