After seeing how many amiibo figures The Legend of Zelda got for its 30th anniversary, I think it's highly likely that Kirby will get some new figurines to celebrate his 25th. But which will they be? I have my predictions, but this blog is dedicated to the figures that would, in my opinion, be the most fitting for the celebration. I've also included other potential candidates and ones I wish they'd make. Here they are:
Game of origin: Kirby's Dream Land (1992)
This figure holds a floating, smiley Kirby whose face is small compared to his pudgy body. In Japan, it is pink and red, but the North American version is entirely white. It represents Kirby's beginning and early years, as well as the work of director Masahiro Sakurai.

Kirby Wiki is officially 10 years old! Hooray! To celebrate this momentous occasion, I've compiled my list of favorite articles--10 of them. Since I've created nearly 200 by this point, I've created a separate list for those. These are in no particular order, and I've tried to limit in-game bias in these picks; for example, even though Magolor is my favorite video game character, his article doesn't make the cut just for featuring him as the subject. I do have fond memories with some of these, however, so nostalgia may play somewhat of a role. Without further ado, let's begin!
- King Dedede - King Dedede has always stuck out to me for one thing: In a series filled with small or medium-sized enemies, he's always been big. But he will never be …

This is an oddly specific topic, but I've been meaning to share it for a while now. Credits themes! The music used to close out a player's adventure often ends up being the best track in whatever game it's it. I've noticed there are typically three types of credits themes: Ones that remix the main tune of the game; ones that form a medley out of the game's main themes, often but not always rearrangements/remixes; and ones that deliver a completely new track altogether. The emotion of the music also varies. Some are meant to be triumphant, some contemplative, some nostalgic, and some ominous.
This is just my personal top 5 list for the Kirby series--traditional, nontraditional, and spin-off. I don't know music terms all that well, so don't ex…Read more >
This blog will probably be made irrelevant later this month, but I'd like to hear some opinions out of you guys. Everyone has an idea of what would make the perfect ingredients for Super Smash Bros., and millions of people dream of amiibo figures they'd want to decorate their shelves. I encourage you all to submit your top three-five picks for Smash fighters, two picks for characters that you'd like to see but don't think would stand a chance of getting in, three-five picks for desired new stages, a pick for a desired returning stage, items, assist trophies, etc. If you're into amiibo, you can also describe which 5 figures/cards you'd like Nintendo to make and possibly the functionality of each.

After thinking about the upcoming Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, I began pondering the possibility of Nintendo crossover games. What series would you like to see Kirby cross over with most? This isn't exclusive to Nintendo properties, but those would probably be the most likely.
And to increase the duration of this blog post, what other Nintendo crossovers would you like to see?
For Kirby, I think crossovers with cute franchises would work best. I'm imagining Super Mario, The Legendary Starfy, and/or Chibi-Robo! Now that I think about it, though, Pikmin X Kirby Mass Attack might work out for obvious reasons.
For other franchises, I'd love to see Xenoblade Chronicles X Fire Emblem or an all-Nintendo strategy game like Fire Emblem Awakening. Yeah…Read more >
