Kirby's Dream Land 3 – Kirby must once again save the day when the mischievous King Dedede starts causing trouble. Always armed with his trusty ability to swallow enemies and gain special attacks, Kirby can also unite with some of his animal friends and make use of their particular talents. Featuring detailed graphics and challenging boss battles, Kirby's Dream Land 3 is a classic.

Kirby's Dream Course – High above Dream Land, players can pitch and putt Kirby through a maze of obstacles on a zany checkerboard golf course. Kirby's Copy Abilities must be put to good use in order to complete each course. Players must sink Kirby into the hole to advance to the next stage as they clear all eight courses – 64 holes in all.

Kirby Super Star – In Kirby Super Star, the iconic round, pink hero will have to journey through six main games and two mini-games, finishing with the ultimate showdown in the Arena, to defeat King Dedede. Each game offers its own story and variation of platforming action, as well as unique environments and an assortment of enemies. There's never a dull moment as Kirby dashes, flies and fights.
