    And, yet, no official Metroid 25th Anniversary...

    I really hope this isn't like that shitty Super Mario All-Stars disk where they just threw the SNES rom onto a DVD an called it a day. They didn't even use the good version of All-Stars that included Super Mario World

    I actually don't think I've played any kirby games except for Dreamland 1 & 2 on the GB and Ghost Trap/Avalanche. I did really love Kirby's Dreamland 2 though back in the day, I had that in my gameboy for weeks on end before the big pokemon explosion of the 90's

    Japan doesn't give a shit about Metroid, I think that was the reason to why that was ignored for their anniversary. However in the West it was released in 1988 so the 20th Anniversary of Metroid in the west is next year, who knows we might get something then.


    "a special Wii disc featuring all your favorite Kirby games"

    All of my favourite games? So does that mean Canvas Curse, Mass Attack, Pinball, Blockball, Tilt N Tumble, Super Star, Super Star Ultra, Epic Yarn, Dreamland 1-2 and Kirby Adventure? A couple of those would only work on a handheld with a touchscreen. Ideally a 3DS compilation with the DS games would be great as well though I don't know what to expect of this, I hope it is more than just some roms on a disc and also how can Nintendo justify releasing all those Kirby games on 3DS VC previously and the future now we know this is coming out?

    Zelda got stuff that were a bit meh and also two games that were going to come out anyway...not to mentioned that it was Donkey Kong's 30th Anniversary and that game is probably Nintendo's most important release ever. It was their first hit that helped the company get some respect in the industry and it gave birth to the greatest spin off of all time Super Mario Bros.

    In one of the recent Kirby games, this badge was found unused amongst the game's files. Pretty cool to see it come to fruition as an official announcement.

    Bet you a beer it is Kirby all-star collection plus but with the touch screen features removed. Then they'll rerelease it for the wii u with the touch screen stuff restored.

    I hate to be a Debbie Downer but it's probably just another cheap collection of emulations like the Super Mario All-Stars one.

    There wasn't a Kirby All-Star Collection. There was Kirby Super Star Ultra which was a remake+ of a SNES mini game collection and didn't feature any previously released Kirby games at all. This isn't a port of that, this is different.

    You owe me a beer.

    It's going to be a collection of ROMs on a disc, that's pretty much a given. The question is how they're going to handle the first GBA game, which was an excellent remake but it's resolution is way too small even for 480p.

    I've enjoyed a lot of the Kirby games, but after the Mario Anniversary disk, I can't exactly say I have my hopes set too high.

    Prove me wrong, Nintendo.

    Kirby and the Crystal Shards? Though, I already have it from the Wii shop.

    Yeah, I'm thinking they'll pull the 'port this SNES game that looks like a compilation to the Wii and call it a compilation' deal again, but instead with a game that isn't a compilation.

    At best, we could hope for a remake of the older GB Kirby games, but that's not likely.
