Fluid layout 3rd December 2013
Wikia is setting the page layouts to fluid on all wikis under their administration starting December 4th, so expect some elements looking out of place or layout problems until they are fixed. You can find more information here.

COPPA's effect on you 8th July 2013
While wikis are read and edited all over the world, since Wikia is based in the USA, they are legally obliged to conform to the COPPA law. Based on their interpretation of conformance, they have introduced a new global rule preventing anonymous IP edits to "child-friendly" wikis, which is a loose blanket covering just about any wiki not solely targeted at demographics 21 or above, meaning it is applicable to just about any wiki.
Kirby Wiki is one of the affected ones, so if you are an anonymous user, your ability to browse the wiki is unaffected, but you will need to do a quick registration before you can edit the wiki. Registration also gives you the benefit of not being shown the enormous ads that take up the site's background. Please note that while Wikia has no way of verifying a user's age, they only allow registration of users aged 13 or above, so please specify it accordingly =)

Forums overhauled 2nd May 2013
The old and under-used forums under Forum:Index have now migrated to a brand-new system under Special:Forum. You can now access it directly from the top navigation bar.
If you wish to post something, please take the time to read through the forum FAQs. Since the system is newly-implemented, there is plenty of room for improvement - any suggestions are very welcome.
Kirby's Dream Collection soundtrack is up 20th September 2012
Tracks from the complimentary sound track CD that comes with the game have been uploaded. See if you can find your favorite!
Site layout change on October 3 20th September 2012
Wikia announced layout and navigation changes due to happen on October 3 for all wikis on the network. You can read the full brief from their staff here. Users' ability to view and edit the site's contents is not affected.
We (Kirby Wiki staff) just got news of the update, so in the few days leading up to October 3, there will be ongoing revisions to the site's layout and styling definitions to account for the changes as outlined in the brief. However, since certain elements cannot be tested before October 3, or cannot be changed without disrupting the current version, they will not be corrected until then.
You can do a partial preview of the new layout on the Main Page and the Kirby article. For other namespaces and articles, just add ?wikiagrid=1&wikiafullheader=1 at the end of the page URL.
So that's essentially what fans call the Kirby's Dream Land trilogy, including the Kirby's Adventure interlude between 1 and 2, and the K64 sequel, with Super Star thrown in for good measure. All the playable content will be on a single Wii disc.
And then there's the book of artwork and a disc full of soundtracks. The disc comes with a Kirby calendar, called "Museum mode" (not to be confused with Kirby's Adventure'sMuseum), which shows his appearances in cartoons and other media as well as games, along with real-world facts.
Of the six release titles, all of them are currently available on either the Wii or 3DS Virtual Console (Dream Land 2's 3DS VC release is still TBA, but is already released in Japan and PAL regions), so if you have played their original release or any of these, you already have part of the collection.
*The soundtrack shown is Kirby's Return to Dream Land's - its availability via Nintendo Club was announced in conjunction with Kirby's Dream Collection. Kirby's Dream Collection comes with a soundtrack, but it will be a different one.
Return to Dream Land and Mass Attack soundtracks up Updated: 2nd November 2011
Kirby's Return to Dream Land and Kirby Mass Attack soundtracks mirroring the in-game Sound Tests have been uploaded. There are also a few extra tracks not within the Sound Test or played in-game. See if you can find your favorite!
