Happy Birthday, Kirby!

Happy Birthday, Kirby!

The super tough pink puff turns 22

This month, 22 years ago, Kirby's Dream Land was released for the Game Boy in the United States. From then to now, Kirby has starred in variety of spectacular games that always brought smiles to our faces.

In Nintendo's Camp Miiverse community, users were asked to draw celebratory pictures for the occasion, and one big collage was formed.

The resulting collage:

There are more than 600 drawing here!

The collage was sent to Shinya Kumazaki, the director of Kirby: Triple Deluxe. He wrote his own message detailing how far Kirby has come:

When Kirby's Dream Land came out back in 1992, Kirby didn't have his Copy ability, let alone Dash or Slide. It had a small world with five stages, where Kirby fought simply by inhaling enemies and spitting them out. How things have changed in Kirby: Triple Deluxe, with Kirby's super-powerful Hypernova Inhale! Still, even after all these years, Kirby has never got tired of inhaling his foes! Some things never change.

I hope you continue to follow the series and look forward to surprising developments in the future, too!

I think it'd be fitting if I pop in Kirby's Dream Collection and revisit good old Dream Land back on the Game Boy, and work my way through Kirby's history. Maybe I'll look for those extra key-chains I missed in Triple Deluxe. Whatever I choose, I know I'm going to have a lot of fun.

Here's to you, Kirby!
