Kirby Super Star is a SNES Kirby game that includes nine games in one. It is considered by many to be the best out of all the Kirby games.

Games[edit | edit source]

Spring Breeze[edit | edit source]

Spring Breeze is a remake of Kirby's Dream Land. It is available from the start of the game. King Dedede has stolen all the food in Dreamland, so Kirby should go get it back. Probably. It is a standard Kirby adventure/platformer. He eats up bad guys, and if they have a power, he can use it, or create a sidekick of that monster.

Dynablade[edit | edit source]

Dynablade has five normal stages accessed from an overworld map and two hidden stages that contain free Kirby abilities. It is available from the start of the game. A bird named Dynablade is destroying Dreamland's crops, so Kirby should go defeat it. Maybe.

The Great Cave Offensive[edit | edit source]

The Great Cave Offensive is a long journey through a cave full of treasure. It is available from the start of the game. Kirby has fallen into a cave and needs to get back out. But it's full of treasures, so Kirby should collect some of those. For sure. Players explore the cave, almost in a Metroid style, finding different paths and different treasures to collect. Some of the treasure is a reference to other Nintendo franchises, such as the Triforce from The Legend of Zelda series.

Revenge of Meta Knight[edit | edit source]

Revenge of Meta Knight features Kirby making his way through Meta Knight's ship, the Halberd, in order to fight the Knight. It is also a standard Kirby adventure platformer. It is unlocked by beating The Great Cave Offensive.

Milky Way Wishes[edit | edit source]

Milky Way Wishes is an interplanetary adventure that Kirby goes on to get to Nova, the comet at galaxy's end. It is unlocked by beating Revenge of Meta-Knight. The Sun and the Moon around Popstar are fighting and Kirby doesn't like that, so he decides to visit Nova and make a wish to get them to stop. Milky Way Wishes is special because Kirby can use any power at any time, but has to collect them first.

The Arena[edit | edit source]

The Arena is a tournament in which Kirby fights every boss from every game, some mini-bosses, and a Waddle Dee. It is unlocked by beating Milky Way Wishes. Before the first fight, you get to pick a power-up. Between fights, you can choose from two new power-ups, grab a Maxim Tomato (but you only have five!), or continue to the next fight.

Gourmet Race[edit | edit source]

Gourmet Race is a minigame where Kirby races Dedede to the finish while collecting food. It is available from the start of the game.

Megaton Punch[edit | edit source]

Megaton Punch is a minigame where Kirby has to time button presses to punch a crack through Popstar. It is available from the start of the game.

Samurai Kirby[edit | edit source]

Samurai Kirby is a reflex-based minigame where Kirby has to press A after a signal, but before his opponent does. If he wins, he moves on to the next opponent. It is available from the start of the game
