Top 10 Best Kirby Games

While we wait for his next adventure, we’ve compiled a list of the ten best Kirby games of all time. As always, don’t take this list as pure fact – it’s always just opinion, and if you have your own thoughts on which games should be ranked where, feel free to tell us in the comments down below.

Kirby’s been on more than a handful of adventures. There are over 30 different games to choose from, and each one has its own unique story and gameplay loop. It stands to reason, then, that a few of these games are better than others. We haven’t seen or heard anything from Kirby in 2024 – and even then, the past few years have been great for the pink puffball. 

Kirby Star Allies lore

To many hardcore Kirby fans, Kirby Star Allies is one of the more middling entries in the series. Though it isn’t bad by any means, its simple level design and less-than-fantastic performance drew criticism when it released in 2018. Thankfully, the game is no slouch when it comes to lore – it adds a ton of it to the Kirby franchise as a whole. Today, we’re recapping Kirby Star Allies lore and explaining everything you need to know about what it adds to the series.

Kirby McDonald's toys

Just announced for Japan is a new collaboration between Nintendo and McDonald’s for Kirby toys with Happy Meals.

Eight different toys are planned that, naturally, are all about Kirby himself. Different poses will be available including the Cone Mouth. We’ll also mention that one toy is for Waddle Dee. Also, these are actually more like plushies – they aren’t plastic.

Kirby Switch controller PowerA

PowerA is planning a new Switch controller design for Kirby, and you’ll be able to pick it up very soon. This is different from the other colorful design we posted about last year.

The wireless controller is similar to the company’s other offerings, but this is a pretty unique design. It includes two mappable Advanced Gaming Buttons that you can program at any time, precision tuned analog sticks, a full size d-pad, a LED indicator for player number, button mapping, and low battery warning, plus more. However, it does not support HD Rumble, the IR camera, motion controls, or amiibo NFC.

Have you ever wondered what happens to the enemies Kirby swallows? In an interview with Polygon, HAL Laboratory executive director Shinya Kumazaki ended up answering that very question.

Here’s what Kumazaki shared:

First 4 Figures has unveiled a special We Love Kirby metal painted statue. It’s the first part of the company’s new Kirby Mini Metals lineup.

This video, which you can view below, will be available until Jan 30, 2023, and showcases Green Tree Memories from Super Kirby Clash and Welcome to the New World from Kirby and the Forgotten Land.

King Dedede statues First 4 Figures

First 4 Figures has revealed a pair of new King Dedede statues as part of its Kirby line.

Two variants are planned. Fans can either pick up the regular version or masked version, and both have “standard” and “exclusive” versions. The exclusive edition contains a gold plated coin.

Below is some additional information about the statues:

King Dedede Nendoroid

We have an update on the previously-announced King Dedede Nendoroid, as Good Smile has provided a release date and started up pre-orders today.

The new Nendoroid has interchangeable eye and mouth parts to create a smiling face, a cool-looking determined face, and a shocked, jaw-dropped face. Also as an optional part, King Dedede’s hammer is included. Those that want to properly display the figure can do so with a stand that’s a part of the package.

The previously announced Kirby 30th Anniversary Music Fest is being performed today, and is being live streamed, giving those unable to attend the concert in person a chance to listen. Fans interested can catch up on the stream below:

On March 25, Kirby and the Forgotten Land was released on Switch, and has gone on to become the best-selling Kirby title to date. Kirby’s Dream Buffet has also been announced with a currently unspecified release date but with a release window of Summer 2022.

The first Kirby game, Kirby’s Dream Land, originally released in 1992 for the Game Boy. Nintendo and HAL Laboratory have launched many mainline and spinoff titles since then across various platforms.
