Amazon Japan is selling the book in physical and digital formats—the latter is readable via Kindle. It can also ship the book to countries outside Japan. The digital ebook is also available for purchase on the Japanese BookWalker store.

HAL Laboratory and Kadokawa initially revealed the encyclopedia in July 2022. The companies teased that the book contains information about over 1,000 characters that appeared across all 35 Kirby games released to date. Preview pages of the book confirm that it also includes details from the series’ latest mainline entry, Kirby and the Forgotten Land.

The encyclopedia groups the enemy characters into categories like regular enemies and bosses. It also lists the Copy Abilities that Kirby can take from them.

The extensive character encyclopedia is one of the numerous celebrations that HAL Laboratory prepared for the Kirby series’ 30th anniversary. The company held a music festival with a global online stream in August 2022. It also announced a Blu-ray remastered release of the 2001 anime Right Back At Ya! that will appear in Japan in Winter 2022. Good Smile Company also joins the celebration by releasing a Nendoroid figure of the eponymous protagonist.

The Kirby Character Encyclopedia is now available in physical and digital formats in the Japanese language. Kirby and the Forgotten Land came out on Nintendo Switch worldwide in late March 2022. Nintendo has sold over 4 million units of the new game as of June 2022.
