Kirby 20th Anniversary collection headed to Wii

Nintendo celebrates two decades of the ninja puff ball

Kirby is 20 years old and Nintendo is celebrating with special activities and releases this year.


To make the pink puff ball's 20th anniversary, Nintendo will release "special anniversary software disc" for Wii later this year.

The firm announced during its Nintendo Direct broadcast that "the disc will contain a variety of previously released, fan-favorite Kirby games," although it stopped short of actually naming the titles that will be included. If the Super Mario 25th Anniversary Edition is anything to go by, expect it to be all retro.

"Additional Kirby anniversary activities will be revealed at a later date," Nintendo teased.
