Back in April, Nintendo teased us with the announcement of the then undetailed anniversary collection disc for the Wii to celebrate Kirby’s 20th birthday. Nintendo has now finally revealed the contents of the newly titled Kirby: 20th Anniversary Special Collection (in Japan) in Famitsu this week.
Kirby: 20th Anniversary Special Collection will feature the first 6 Kirby titles – excluding spin-offs. Fans of the series can look forward to once again playing Kirby’s Dream Land (Game Boy, 1992), Kirby’s Adventure (Famicom/NES, 1993), Kirby’s Dream Land 2 (Game Boy, 1995), Kirby Super Star (Super Famicom/SNES, 1996 – called Kirby’s Fun Pak in Europe), Kirby’s Dream Land 3 (Super Famicom/SNES, 1997) and Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (Nintendo 64, 2000).
The game compilation will be accompanied by a special booklet, soundtrack CD and on disc calendar looking at the series’ history.
Kirby: 20th Anniversary Special Collection will release in Japan on July 19 for 3,800 yen.
