    A bit late for the news, but it's good to have it in this section anyways. Ate up the original SNES game in my youth (still have a go at it with emus, but it's nice to have it on the ds). This looks most excellent! What an info drought we had to go through before we got this news though! Last news was the unveiling back in 2007. Now we've got an official release date for the US! (and a few new screens to boot)

    BTW, it's now listed on the official Nintendo of America website:

    I think Urza was talking about this on IRC last night, which led me to start playing the original game on a SNES emulator with my DS as a wireless gamepad, really fun game. I definitely need to try this when its released.

    Well it IS GBATemp. I owned the game several times during my childhood, but always ended up having to sell it for more important things.

    I got it but over here it was called Kirby's Fun Pack.

    Must be popular there are like four threads for this game now.

    Oh search button, if only people used you.

    I have Kirby's Fun Pak too, but I prefer using the American name.

    Kirby Superstar Deluxe>Kirby's Fun Pak

    The big multiplayer question:

    will it be single or multi cart play? I hope it's single.

    Strangely, no. We actually received a US release date BEFORE a Japanese one (and on a Kirby game to boot).

    Ditto, Kirby's Fun Pack sounds kinda dirty to me.

    From the info on the Nintendo page, it seems like multipack for the co-op adventure, and single pack for the minigames.

    I had Kirby Super Star, but I think the battery or something is out of juice because my saves would always delete. Nowadays, we(my older brother and I) either play it on an emulator or pull out the old Nintendo and try to beat the game in one day. My favorite game, but I really with I knew where my Mario all stars went.

    I just now found a Japanese release date on the Ignorance Gaming Network (IGN):

    December 31, 2008

    Scroll down to the editions part. They don't have a Europe date now. I really think they are just pulling this date out of their ass. The US date was officially confirmed via Nintendo press release, but not this.

    I think there are some homebrew that allow the ds to become a wireless controller for the pc

    Loved Kirby Superstar! Especially the co-op. I was waiting for a new Kirby co-op and I guess this answered my wishes.

    If it had wifi co-op it would e complete but wireless co-op is a-OK with me.
