As some of you know, a Kirby anniversary collection much in the same vein as the Mario one has been revealed within the last few months. Well folks, after much speculation, worrying, and hoping, we finally know.
Kirby’s 20th Anniversary Compilation will contain Kirby’s Dream Land, Kirby’s Adventure, Kirby’s Dream Land 2, Kirby Super Star, Kirby’s Dream Land 3, and Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.
And that’s not all, folks! According to Siliconera, unlike the Mario collection which consisted of a SNES port, there will be new content to look forward to.
Among this is the “More Challenge Mode”, which is based on the challenge stages from the recent Kirby’s Return to Dreamland. The compilation will include over ten stages in this mode, making the player use specific copy abilities to reach the goal. Of course, like Super Mario All Stars Limited Edition, Nintendo will be bundling a History of Kirby booklet and a special soundtrack with the game. It’s all coming out July 19 in Japan, with an American release hopefully to follow.
