kirbys_dream_land_01Kirby’s Dream Land has already been released in Japan as a 3DS Virtual Console download, but unsurprisingly, a U.S. release is planned, too. The ESRB gave it away by rating the Game Boy title this week.


Dream Land was the very first Kirby game ever produced. It didn’t include Kirby’s identifiable copying ability, though; that was introduced in a later game.

  • YESSSSSSSS! My first Gameboy game! That is all:)

    • Zonic505

      Same here. This was one of the first handheld games I can recall playing.

      Good times.

  • Whoa awesome.  I’ll pick this up if it’s $4 or less

    • Exkaiser

      Given that Super Mario Land is $4, that seems pretty likely.

    I guess I’ll be getting a 3DS before anything else then. ono

  • Is Nightmare in Dreamland a remake of this game?

    Fantastic!  I remember being six years-old, at home in my jammies because I was sick with a stomache bug, and my mom bringing this game home for me.  I hadn’t heard about it before, but it had me hooked.  I’ll rebuy this just for the memories…and the fact that I still like to do 15-17 minute speedruns of the game, and playing the harder mode.  

    Okay, I’ll stop nostalgia-ing.

  • I have been eyeballing this since the japs got it. (is that racist, I don’t mean for it to be) this was the first gameboy game I bought!
