Kirby’s 25th Anniversary
It’s been 25 years since Kirby made his way into the Game Boy. We’re not talking about Game Boy Color or Game Boy Advance, the original Game Boy. Yes, it was a little disappointing when you would buy the game with it’s box and it would show Kirby in his original color: Pink. But on the Game Boy, he’s Black and White.
Kibry’s first appearance would be Kirby’s Dream Land where he battles enemies all the way to the final fight with King Dedede. The game sold quite well despite how easy the game is and it being in black and white. I had the game when I was 10 and I was able to defeat King Dedede in 20 minutes. Afterwards, the game tells of a hard mode. That wasn’t too much difficult with hard mode. The creator of Kirby’s Dream Land, named Masahiro Sakurai intended the game to be simple.
Kirby’s Dream Land would not start and end with Kirby, more game would be released with Kirby due to the success of Kirby’s Dream Land. Kirby’s Dream Land is available on the Wii and the 3DS.
In 1993, Nintendo released Kirby’s Adventure for the NES. This was one of the final games released for the NES (the final one was Wario’s Woods in early 94). Kirby’s Dream Land 2 would follow in 1995 and the third installment would come to SNES in 1997 in North America first and Japan in 1998. Kirby will would be found on the Nintendo 64 and Game Boy Color. Kirby has a game in each Nintendo console minus the Nintendo Switch as of August 2017, but I’m sure Kirby will make his way there.
