Nintendo is magic. That’s the only way I can describe the company. Whenever they release a new game in an old franchise I feel like a kid again. It takes me back to the early 90’s when I grew up exploring Hyrule, saving the Mushroom Kingdom, and escaping planet Zebes. Now I’ve returned to Dream Land with Kirby’s Return to Dream Land for the Wii. Ditching the yarn in favor of a more traditional outing, Kirby inhales enemies, copies abilities, and positively drips nostalgia. Oh, and did I mention the co-op adventure mode?
There will always be a spot in my heart for Kirby and his pinkness. The original Kirby’s Dream Land on the Game Boy was one of the first games I remember playing (And one of the first I recall beating). For that reason alone Kirby and I will always have a connection.
