Kirby 25th Anniversary Retrospective

This month is Kirby’s 25th anniversary. The little pink puff debuted on the Game Boy on April 27, 1992 with Kirby’s Dream Land in Japan. It later released that same year in August for North American and European territories. Strangely enough Kirby’s pink color scheme was muted in those two areas as a white puff instead, which was later corrected from the next game going forward. That’s just a taste of the fun little factoids I packed into my two part video retrospective on Kirby. I also included a list of the games and their corresponding release dates below. Enjoy!
