Sakurai Kirby's Dream Land

Masahiro Sakurai just opened a new YouTube channel, and one of the first videos he published focuses on Kirby’s Dream Land and its creation. One part of the video provides an excerpt from the original game proposal, pictured above.

Sakurai felt that with the game, “there had to be an easier way to take advantage of the enemies on-screen.” While he initially considered having Kirby use his tongue to grab foes, he ultimately went with what the character is now famous for: inhaling them and spitting them out.

Something Sakurai also discusses is the difficulty of Kirby’s Dream Land. Although some may feel it’s a bit too easy, he wanted the game to be an entry point for new players.

Below is Sakurai’s full video on Kirby’s Dream Land:
