A common trend you will see with handheld games for Nintendo is releasing a ported version of an older game. For this game in particular, Nintendo and HAL Laboratories decided to bring back the SNES classic known as Kirby Super Star and put it on the Nintendo DS in the form of Kirby Super Star Ultra. It’s the same classic game we know and love with some additional content as well. What’s not to like?

This was a game I definitely wanted to get around to at some point once I had my permanent DS capturing device. I don’t remember what my plans initially were for this game back when I did the vanilla version of Kirby Super Star for the channel, whether I planned to just show off the new content or heck, not even show the game at all because DS capturing seemed like such an impossibility back then, but I decided to go for it anyway because it is such an amazing game as it is.

I have also included stream clips at the end of this project featuring my additional Helper to Hero runs to unlock the final movie!

Kirby’s Return to Dream Land

Remember when Kirby GCN was a thing for the longest time? Then once the Gamecube era ended and Kirby’s Epic Yarn was the first Kirby platformer since Kirby 64, people wondered whatever the hell happened to that Kirby game we were promised? However, when Return to Dream Land came out, all questions were answered as people flocked to another one of the Wii’s awesome platforming titles. This time with multiplayer posibilities, interesting motion controlled minigames, brand new copy power-ups and a whole lot more.

I think it is safe to say that Return to Dream Land was in the works for a really long time on my channel. However, the timing never felt just right for it until this year when I needed a project to go alongside what was left of the Sacred Stones postgame. So Kirby, you ready for another round of fun in Dream Land?

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror

Meta Knight has gone missing in the Mirror World and Kirby has been split into 4 miniature copies. You know what this means? I think it means that it is time for a Kirby Metroidvania game! Let’s explore this world and restore the Magic Mirror back to normal!

I think it’s no surprise that I wanted Pokemon Gold to be my 100th project, but due to the vast number of issues during the previous year, that just wasn’t going to happen, especially while in the process of working on Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. So why not another Kirby game? Sounds good to me!

Kirby Squeak Squad

Kirby really loves his sweets, but when a group of thieving mice called The Squeaks come to town and steal his dessert, the fun and games are over. Kirby must now give them chase, retrieve his lost cake, and pick up tons and tons of other treasure that he finds throughout his adventure.

It had been awhile since I used my DS-recording technology so I figured another DS Let’s Play would be a very welcome addition to the channel. The game I chose was actually a very random selection, but I figured that Kirby never usually did me wrong and this was a game I actually really liked and felt was underappreciated in a lot of different ways. This project also featured a lot of firsts for my channel, including the first time I used a channel-specific side-border for my videos, and the first time I used a “Previously on….” clip segment to remind people what happened in the previous video (most of the time it being a funny moment).

Dark Matter is once again on the loose, and it’s up to Kirby and his friends to make things right and banish the evil sludge back to where it came from. In order to accomplish this, Kirby must travel to several other planets and use some very new and unique powers, including a new mechanic of combining copy abilities!

I was smack dab in the middle of my Radiant Dawn playthrough at the time and wanted to make sure that I had a decent buffer in between the mass quantities of videos I was uploading for the Radiant Dawn project. I turned to Kirby, particularly my 2nd favorite Kirby game, for a bit of assistance, because everybody loves that Kirby guy! I do feel like this playthrough got kind of drowned out by Radiant Dawn, which is a shame because I thought this honestly went pretty well considering.

Kirby’s Dream Course

What happens when you take Kirby and put him in a game about mini-golf? You get Kirby’s Dream Course! Kirby takes golf in a very unique way though, turning himself into the ball and using a variety of power-ups to move further along the course. This is the type of game where clever thinking, and sometimes, even a little bit of risk, can yield some very great rewards, so go for broke and get a great score!

This was another project that was impacted in a very unfortunate way, by the crash of my computer at the time, only being able to record on one day every two weeks, but regardless of this fact, I was still able to enjoy a very classic game from my childhood, doing something that I had honestly never done before the project…unlocking and mastering the bonus content that the game has to offer!

This playlist also features a bonus inclusion of ShadowMarioXLI and I competing against each other, and playing all the stages of the Multiplayer mode. This was featured on the CrystalStarStudio channel, but was treated as part of the project.

Who says that nothing ever happens in the world of Kirby? Well, this game is and will always be the counter point to that statement, because Kirby Super Star is not one, not two, or hell, even three games. This adventure is a collection of seven games (excluding mini-games) featuring nothing but classic Kirby gameplay in new adventures with some very unique twists.

This was the fourth “replay” project I did on my channel, as I had done some videos for the game at a prior date, but due to the bad (camcorder) quality of the project, with no commentary to boot, I decided to redo the project with a modern spin. The older videos are no longer available on my channel.

I wanted to start 2010 with a bang, and with a game like Kirby Super Star, I knew I couldn’t go wrong. It’s a nice and easy game that has a mass appeal with people, mainly due to how easy it is for any gamer to get into, and has and will always have a place in my heart!
