Kirby Sucks Wii One Last Time!

With the Wii reaching its final days, Kirby's Dream Collection will be joining the amazing and fittingly titled The Last Story as one of the final games on Nintendo's most divisive and successful home console.  Kirby's newest game is a 20th anniversary compilation of the pink puffballs "Dream Land" adventures.  The game will compile six of the main games in the series spanning four Nintendo consoles. The included Kirby games are:

      Kirby's Dream Land (Gameboy)
      Kirby's Adventure (NES)
      Kirby's Dream Land 2 (Gameboy)
      Kirby Super Star (SNES)
      Kirby's Dream Land 3 (SNES)
      Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (N64)

Also included on the disc are:
New Challenge Stages - These are done in the graphical style of Return to Dream Land and include new time/score attack levels exclusive to this disc.
Kirby Museum - The game includes a chronological history of every Kirby game including trivia about what was happening around the world at the time of each game's release.

While it is true that you can access all of these game digitally between the Wii & 3DS, having them all in one physical collection with added content is a nice bonus for fans & collector's.  Oddly, this collection shows an actual level of thought and care very uncharacteristic of Nintendo when you consider their handling of the anniversary's of Mario and Zelda and their complete ignoring of Metroid last year.  You can get your suck on this September, long live the pink creampuff!
