Kirby Returns To eShop Land

By Kevin on Nov 18 2011 07:55 PM
Our little pink buddy is back. This time, in 3D. While I personally believe that the $6.99 price tag is a bit over-priced, many of you might find it appealing enough to want to download it. I watched the 3D trailer on the eShop and it looks decent but I'm not convinced that the price warrants this 3D remake.

Game Overview

Delve into the land of dreams-turned-nightmares as Kirbyâ„¢ flies with the stars in 3D.

3D Classics: Kirby's Adventure offers you a chance to explore the world of Dream Land in a whole new way. The landscape comes to life as Kirbyâ„¢ crosses land, sea, and sky in his quest to restore the Star Rod. After waking from a dreamless sleep, Kirby goes to investigate the Dream Spring only to find that its source of energy has been stolen by King Dedede. Broken and divided across seven worlds, Kirby will need to use his unique ability to steal enemies' powers as he battles and to restore the pieces of the Star Rod. Without it, how can a hero fight another day if he can't get a good night's sleep? Embark on this adventure as the beloved pink character tries to save the citizens of Dream Land from a lifetime of terrible nightmares.

To enjoy the 3D effect of Nintendo 3DS software, you must experience it from the system itself. All screenshots and videos on this website have been captured in 2D mode.

I look it at this way: The game costs $5 on the Wii, so I'm only paying $2 extra for the 3D mode, and hella-sharp graphics.

...and on a hella-smaller screen. That was one of the first things I noticed about the trailer in the eShop. The game only used 3/4 of the width of the screen. This could be because it was from the trailer but did you see that trailer?

The game does indeed run in 4:3... which is indeed lame.

Yeah. I forgot to mention that you can dim the background, and change the controls.

Ah, that does indeed suck. How bad is it? Would you mind taking a picture or something? Or...is it the same exact aspect ratio as the trailer?

The game runs in the same aspect ratio as the trailer.

Hmm...that's a ton of lost real estate. I think I'll pass...for now anyway. Thanks for the info, KM.
