Retro Corner Kirby’s Adventure

MasonicGamer.com: Kirby’s Adventure for the Nintendo Entertainment system was always something of a strange release, it’s a game released in 1993. Let that one sink in for a second, by 1993 the NES had already been out in Japan for ten years. In fact, by 1993 Nintendo was pushing 3D polygons on the SNES thanks to StarFox and the SuperFX chip. Even to this day I don’t really understand the thinking behind such a late release but thankfully it didn’t hurt the game. Kirby’s Adventure is actually one of the best games the NES has to offer and that’s no small feat considering this is the system that gave us Super Mario Bros 3.

One year prior to Kirby’s Adventure, the team at HAL Laboratory developed a little title by the name of Kirby’s DreamLand for the original GameBoy. I’d love to tell you all about it but considering the game has sold over 5 million copies since it’s release, I’m going to assume you’ve all played it before. No seriously, it’s the fourth best selling GameBoy game, you HAVE played that one before. (Retro)
