'Kirby's Dream Collection' Review - Inhaling 20 Years Of Kirby - MTV Multiplayer

"Far from carrying as much weight as Nintendo's big name mascots, Kirby has kind of always just been around. Created by HAL Laboratories in the early 1990s, by the now-renowned designer Mashahiro Sakurai, Nintendo’s most rotund character was originally called Popopo and used as a dummy character for testing other games. Going all the way back to his first release on the Game Boy in 1992, the pink puffball is like the overlooked little brother at Nintendo – he shows up everywhere, usually tries something unique and experimental while searching to find his own identity, and never has as much money as the big kids, like Link and Mario, to spend on making people think he’s cool.

While he may not have the same household name recognition as his peers, Kirby does have 20 games with a headlining role, spanning just about every console Nintendo has ever released, so someone at Nintendo has to like him (hint: it's likely Nintendo of Japan President Satoru Iwata who worked at HAL Laboratory in Kirby's heyday). This year, Kirby turns twenty years-old, and Nintendo is celebrating his birthday in style with his own special game compilation, Kirby's Dream Collection, which brings together six of his early works on one Wii disc.", writes MTV Multiplayer.
