Did you know that Kirby was almost called “Twinkle Popo?” Thank goodness for the change! “Twinkle Popo’s Dream Land” just doesn’t quite roll off the tongue.
Kirby’s Dream Land was released on the Nintendo Game Boy in April of 1992 (August in the US). After Tetris, it was the first significant game that I owned for the handheld system. I remember playing it often on car trips, and it was easy enough where I could beat it over and over again in just under a half hour. I also fondly recall opening up the configuration mode (by pushing down, B, and select on the title screen) just so I could listen to the Bubbly Clouds music uninterrupted. The bass line especially bopped when wearing headphones!
With the release of Kirby and The Forgotten Land just under a week away for the Nintendo Switch, I figured it was only fitting to devote my next crayon project to Kirby’s roots. Will you be getting the new game? I played through the demo and can’t wait to try out the rest of the adventure! In the meantime, enjoy my classic Kirby crayon art!
