1UP: The Origins of Kirby

Kirby's latest adventure, Kirby's Epic Yarn for Wii, has a bit in common with the pink puffball's initial videogame foray, the Game Boy title Kirby's Dream Land from way back in 1992. For one thing, both games were originally planned to star different characters. Epic Yarn was first conceived as "World of Fluff" by the development team at Good Feel, was supposed to star Prince Fluff, who eventually became Kirby's cohort in the final product. Kirby's Dream Land (and indeed, the whole Kirby franchise as we know it) began with the idea of a hero character named Popopo, and from there, it's a more complicated past that ties into how Kirby came to be.

The story is too old to be commented.
