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 Adventure

Kirby is a very unique case for this marathon, as Kirby’s Adventure didn’t exactly launch his series of games, but it did debut one of Kirby’s most prominent and utilized features; the copy ability. King Dedede is up to some shady things at the Dream Fountain, so it’s up to Kirby to see what the heck is going on in Dream Land.

One question I had been getting for the longest time was “When are you going to do Kirby’s Adventure/Nightmare in Dreamland?” And honestly, I had been trying to fit it into my schedule at some point, but the timing just never felt right. However, when thoughts of the NES Marathon started entering my head, I knew Kirby’s Adventure had to be covered.

NOTE: If I do cover Nightmare in Dreamland at some point, it will be the MetaKnightmare mode and that’s probably it, considering it’s the same exact game as Kirby’s Adventure with updated graphics.

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’s Avalanche

Kirby has had a number of spinoff games, and one of the very early ones was a Kirby redesign of the game Puyo Puyo. This game was called Kirby’s Avalanche, a Tetris-styled puzzle game that can actually get quite difficult in some of the more difficult settings. Let’s get moving Kirby!

I hadn’t done a proper mini-project for awhile and since I was kind of getting too far ahead with some of my uploads, I figured a short project of this nature was in order to hold things over for a small bit. Kirby’s Avalanche came to mind as a game I played when I was a kid and from that point on, I knew it was the way to go.

Dark matter, the same icky stuff from Kirby’s Dream Land 2, has made its return, but this is not something our hero Kirby will be able to stand for. With new abilities and new animal friends, our hero is ready to once again save the day from almost certain doom!

This was the tenth “replay” project I did on my channel, as I had done some videos for the game at a prior date, but due to the poorer quality of the project, I decided to redo the project with a modern spin. The videos for the old project are still available for viewing on my channel, but there is no longer a playlist associated with that version.

Once again, I was dissatisfied with the original rendition of a project I had done and I wanted to do it over again and do it right. This time was Kirby’s Dream Land 3, a game that I originally played “blind” for you guys, but I was unhappy with the result as it gave a very unprofessional balance of “blind playthrough with post-commentary.” With the final result of this project, I will say that I was glad that I redid this project, although I will say that I wasn’t a huge fan of it either; my distate mostly stemming from the fact that I am not a big fan of this game, as I found out.

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).

Kirby’s Epic Yarn

Kirby's Epic Yarn

Game: Kirby’s Epic Yarn
Start Date: April 2nd, 2012
Runtime: 9 hours

Kirby is having another leisurely stroll through Dream Land when he finds a nice, juicy tomato to eat. Turns out, eating this tomato was a bad idea, as an evil sorcerer named Yin-Yarn turns Kirby into a piece of yarn himself and sends him to a place called Patch Land. In Patch Land, he meets Prince Fluff, his guide to this new world made of yarn! Although Kirby no longer has his trademark abilities anymore, he will find that yarn isn’t so useless. It can quite literally be the key to threading this new adventure together!

Around the tme of this project, Kirby’s Epic Yarn had gotten a lot of hate from gamers, particularly those who either found the game “insultingly easy” or a bad title to represent the Kirby series with. I personally disagree with all of those sentiments as I thought this game was amazing in its own right and charm. Not only did I find the gameplay fun, but the game itself is a masterpiece in audiovisual excellence. I had also gotten a lot of requests to cover this game as well, which I was more than obliged to follow through with. All in all, I think this is a terrific game and I hope you guys enjoy it as well!

Something is a little off in Dream Land when King Dedede is once again up to his old tricks. That king always seems to show up when nothing good is happening. This time though, Kirby has his newly established copy ability, and a couple of animal friends to help him out!

At this point in time, I wanted to cover both the Kirby’s Dream Land series and the Super Mario Land series (as I wanted to replay the 3rd games of both series), but since I had not even covered the 2nd game yet of the Dream Land series, I felt like it was time! This was another game I really loved playing from my childhood and I was happy to bring it to you guys!

Dream Land has met with a terrible fate, and that fate is known as King Dedede! This greedy king needs to be stopped, and a puffball named Kirby is the only one who can do it! This was Kirby’s very first video game adventure, and thankfully was not his last!

This is perhaps one of the shortest projects I have ever done on my channel, but considering the game only has 5 levels (one of which being a boss endurance), I guess you can’t really be surprised by that fact. I did this game as a weekend mini-project because I wanted to take a break from doing Advance Wars map playthroughs. I also had another ulterior motive which showed its face two-weeks later when I covered the sequel, and later in 2013 when I took on the 3rd game (again). I also techically played this game twice, the second time using “Hard Mode,” an addition which actually made this game quite challenging!

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.
