Well, overlooked is not the best choice of word perhaps, but compared to the love frenzy generated by Mario or Link, the little guy sits out of the direct spotlight. Unfortunately these days he's sitting out far too often, never being able to hit a gaming stride past the 16-bit era. Apart from the Super Smash Bros. series, an upcoming Wii title that might bring him back to form and many spin-off titles, Kirby has been relegated to continuing his main platforming existence on the hand-held market, amusingly where he was first born on the Gameboy in 1992."
