Kirby: Return to Dreamland will be released in America on October 24, 2011 exclusively for Wii! In Europe the game still goes by the name “Kirby’s Adventure Wii” and is scheduled for release this December!

Marking the pink-puffball’s glorious return to form on the Nintendo Wii, following last year’s outstanding Kirby’s Epic Yarn, Kirby will once again grace a Nintendo console during its last days, which is usually when Kirby game’s hit Nintendo systems for some unknown reason.

  • Unlike Kirby’s Epic Yarn, Kirby’s Return to Dreamland takes the franchise back to its roots, with a Kirby that can copy abilities, float, suck in air and kill people with his cuteness. It also returns to a more traditional look instead of the crazy awesome art-style of before.

    New to Kirby’s Return to Dreamland are Super Abilities, which can destroy multiple enemies at once along with parts of the environment, and the ability to suck in multiple enemies at a time for a major energy attack. All Copied Abilities also have multiple moves this time, instead of only one move like in past games.

    Another all-new feature is co-operative multiplayer play. Multiplayer is Drop-in/Drop-Out, so you can simply hook a controller to join in on the action. Up to four Kirby’s can play on-screen at once, or the other three players can choose between Meta Knight, King Dedede, and Waddle Dee. Each have their own unique abilities, and can ride on top of one another. Kirby can also inhale the other characters and shoot them out for unique attacks. No word whether Kirby’s Return to Dreamland supports online play, but you’d have to assume it doesn’t.

    Here is a video of Kirby’s Return to Dreamland in action! you can spot many of his new abilities in this video, including Kuribo’s Shoe and many classics!

    You wouldn’t know it, but Kirby’s Return to Dreamland has been in development for as long as the Wii has been in existence! The game was originally in development as a GameCube title using the Super Smash Bros. Melee engine! It was then cancelled, while the Kirby’s Epic Yarn project was started as a separate game. That game released and still there was no sign of Kirby’s Adventure Wii, or “Kirby Wii“. However the game was finally revived once again as Kirby 2011 and is finally set for release under the title “Kirby’s Return to Dreamland”! Phew! Quite the history for the little guy, he must be one tuckered out puffball.

    Those who remember the latter days of the GameCube may also recall Kirby’s Air Ride, of which this was originally the follow-up to that game!

    Here is a look at the GameCube incarnation of the game running on the Super Smash Bros. Melee engine.

      Kirby’s Adventure is one of the best games to ever come from the NES. It helps that it was also one of the last – Nintendo’s 8-bit console had been on the market for nearly eight years already when the game debuted in stores, and the arrival of new releases had begun to slow down considerably. Those games that were still making it out the door benefited from the longevity of the system, as by 1993 the game programmers of the world had learned how to unleash every last ounce of power hidden inside the original Nintendo system. Kirby’s Adventure was one of those late-generation games, and probably the best of them. Every programming trick and visual technique in the book was used here, and the result was fantastic. An 8-bit platformer that transcends its humble hardware, Kirby’s Adventure is a journey you don’t want to miss.

      Kirby’s Adventure is
      a basic platformer, and the player guides Kirby through each of the
      many levels in seven different worlds. Kirby can run when the d-pad is
      double tapped, he can jump with the A button, and can float around
      stages when the player repeatedly presses up on the D-pad. The
      foundation is standard platformer fare: progress to the right,
      eventually reaching the goal, and take care not to fall down any holes
      or get beat up by dudes. In Kirby, once a level is completed, the player
      has a chance to earn bonuses with a timed button press. Most of these
      bonuses increase the score, but the top bonus will award a bonus life.
