It’s been three years since the launch of Kirby Star Allies, but a new art book recently arrived in Japan. It included an interview with Shinya Kumazaki, the game’s director.

Kumazaki also left a message at the end of the book. After discussing some of the difficulties HAL Laboratory went through while making Star Allies, he also spoke vaguely about the series’ future. Kumazaki mentioned moving on to the “next phase” of Kirby and “planning for the next stage of our future.”

Kumazaki’s message, translated by Nintendo Everything, is as follows:

Kirby’s Dream Land, the very first entry in the Kirby series, came out on April 27, 1992 in Japan. That means the Kirby series as a whole is now 29 years old.

To celebrate the series’ birthday, a new piece of art was posted on the official Japanese Twitter account. Get a look at the image above.
