At Nintendo’s third quarter financial briefing held in Japan a few hours ago, company president, Satoru Iwata, announced that Nintendo subsidiary, HAL Laboratory, are working on a new game in the Kirby’s Dream Land series.

Prior to his joining Nintendo, Iwata was president of HAL Laboratory, who developed games such as Kirby 64 and the Super Smash Bros. games. HAL also supervised development of the recent Kirby’s Epic Yarn on the Wii, developed by Good-Feel. Kirby’s Dream Land is slated for release this year on Wii.
