    This is one of the most impressive remakes I've ever seen! The core game remains the same as does the music, but ALL the graphics and cutscenes are getting a complete overhaul! I especially like this screen:

    It's in every way better than the original with pseudo-3D spinning star statues. But notice something about the background? They paid attention to the Nintendo character's cameos and respected it!

    Been playing the SNES game over the weekend again, this just looks like a new game to me now. September can't come soon enough.

    You know what surprises me the MOST? Nintendo and Hal are truly going all out on the remake. Instead of just slapping one the SNES game to a DS cartridge, they redesigned EVERY bit of the graphics. They made it 100% superior to the original AND kept true to the original. I guess we should wait till we play it to judge, but I trust them! I even forgive them for the half-year info drought!

    Every screenshot from the main game has a Wifi bar on the bottom screen. I guess that makes co-op confirmed! I wonder if it's single or multi-cart...

    Even with the disappointing Nintendo E3 this year, this STILL made it good!

    And @ the date, this list from Nintendo (at E3) has it for September 22:

    I couldn't help but notice with the box art that this seems to be the first English Kirby game in forever that doesn't feature Angry Kirby on the box.

    Wow... I might actually buy this game (which is pretty much what I do for all my other games save a few...).

    Yeah... I really fail to see what's so "impressive" about this remake.
    The sprites are mostly ripped straight out of the GBA versions, which means this is what, the 4th/5th handheld Kirby with pretty much the exact same sprites?
    Sure, they did edit them a little, but impressive is not quite how I'd put it.

    Great. First Metal Slug and now this? Oh my god let me breath!! I am drowning in the DS awesomeness I can barely catch up. I am addicted to keep replaying Metal Slug since I love the shoot em up feel on the go and now I see we're getting this soon? WOW. They just keep coming and coming. I can hardly get enough of the game before and a new one comes! DS is going into overtime with releasing freakin' amazing stuff. This game looks amazing and since I am a kirby fan I can't wait!

    My question is whether or not it'll have optional 2 player support for some of the games like the original.

    I bet there'd be too much lag through the wi-fi though.

    I doubt there will be any Co-Op on wi-fi. Maybe trading, but the bars from the screenshot in OP looks like the local wireless signal.
