Kirby™ and his friends are back in an adventure designed to satisfy
longtime Kirby fans and beginners alike. When an alien spaceship crashes
in the otherwise peaceful realm of Planet Pop Star, its pieces are
scattered throughout the land. Players must guide Kirby as he retrieves
the ship's parts and helps an alien return to its home planet. This
time, however, he's not alone. At any time, up to three more players can
join in the fun and play as Meta Knight, King Dedede, Waddle Dee or a
different color Kirby.


Kirby’s powerful Copy Ability returns, allowing him to inhale, spit
and transform as he encounters enemies.

Players can deploy classic and new abilities, including:

  • Sword: Kirby dons a green cap and wields a sword.

  • Beam: Kirby wears a jester hat and can shoot energy from a magic wand.

  • Whip: Kirby wears a cowboy hat and can lasso enemies.

  • Leaf: Kirby is surrounded by a whirlwind of leaves.

The game also introduces new Super Abilities, which are activated when
Kirby inhales special enemy characters. For example, the “Ultra Sword”
Super Ability allows Kirby to swing a giant sword and wipe out an
entire screen’s worth of foes.

Up to four players can enjoy the action together. (Additional
controllers required and sold separately.) While playing cooperatively
to progress through the game, player can join and leave the game at
any time.

Kirby's Return to Dream Land reviews and comments

Completed as of writing this review: Base Game.

This is my first Kirby game in the series that I decided to beat and I'm pretty satisfied with the result. I'll admit, after a lot of indies and other hard platformers, Kirby at times felt too easy and too barren. Basically the stuff you can miss is right on the nose and the only solution is to restart or lose a life in order to collect it. Perhaps this is because I was playing with my friend and in multiplayer the boss battles are really a breeze (we got no game over at all). The presentation is top-notch, really cool to see such art-style work in Wii days, just like Super Mario Galaxy. Nintendo knows how to impress their audience and this game is no different.
I'd recommend to play it mostly if you want a relaxing game in your backlog. Yes, there are challenges, but they are purely optional, so I would not count them as difficulty spikes in the Base Game. A really good game to start on by the way!
