Gamestop is the only place I've seen it available for preorder. And it's $39.99.

I'm a big Nintendo fan, but I still have trouble paying so much for a rom collection on a disk

I'm a big Nintendo fan, but I still have trouble paying so much for a rom collection on a disk



Kirby's Dream Collection Special Edition

Kirby's Dream Land (3DS, $3.99)
Kirby's Adventure (Wii, 500 points;3DS 3D Classics version is also available for $6.99)
Kirby’s Dream Land 2 (not available for purchase?)
Kirby Super Star (Wii, 800 points; Kirby SuperStar Ultra DS remake is also available)
Kirby’s Dream Land 3 (Wii, 800 points)
Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (Wii, 1000 points)

So take the dollar equivalent of the Wii download games and it'll cost $35. Adventure Land 2 isn't available but let's say that it would have cost $3.99 like Dream Land for the 3DS and the retail cost would add up to $39.The collection also includes brand new challenge stages, the 20th anniverfsay soundtrack with 45 tracks, an interactive timeline and a 48 page booklet. Another plus for some is having all the content on disc instead of digital content.

Really looking forward to this game, though I hope its stocked well enough to warrant a sale in the future (25-30 bucks would be a sweetspot for me), or at least offer a reprint if it goes quickly.

If past experience is worth anything, depending on demand there may/may not be a reprint. Nintendo LE's tend to have a limtied print run. I remember missing out on the Mario anniversary and luckily they did a reprint of that so I grabbed a couple, not chancing it with Kirby.

Must resist...must resist...wallet dying...must resist! Game, mini soundtrack, mini art book?! Argh...curse you debts!

(Still got about a month so I might actually be able to afford this one. Just need to figure out where to get money for Last Story.)

Kirby is my favorite Nintendo character! Day One for me!

Good point, though Kirby isn't as appealing to the masses as Mario is (at least in the US, I know it's very popular in Japan), that may play a bit into its availability long term. I know that the MPT release was limited too, but that hit clearance cycles eventually, so you never know.

Aye, but now it's difficult to find unless you go to high cost reseller channels.

I'll be picking up a copy of Kirby at launch to avoid the Mario Collection fiasco.

Yeah, there's not a chance in hell I'm making the same mistake I did with Mario collection and wait for a sale. Thankfully a month ago I found someone on Ebay selling it used but in like new condition for $30. That's a pretty good deal considering what it goes for.

Now this is how your supposed to do a collection, actually looks thought out unlike that garbage Mario collection that took 30 mins to make.

I'm surprised they don't have it listed yet.

That link works, but I wonder why it took Amazon took so long to put it up and why it doesn't show up in searches.

Showed up in my goldbox for $38 so I bit. I would have felt $30 would be more appropriate though, book+cd and all, since kirby is just not as popular as mario or zelda.

edit: placed a 2nd gold box order (didn't know they let you do that), just in case this turns out to be rarez or amazon adds a gc later, so I can open one to play.

^That's pretty neat. I'd be happy if a print-out of that a was pre-order bonus at Gamestop. Already pre-ordered there since I'm not going to take a chance this time around.

I once saw Super Mario All-Stars Limited Edition at Target when Nintendo did the reprint and still didn't pick up a copy. Now I see the game going for about $65 on Amazon.

Why is Nintendo of America bucking the trend of releasing angry eyed Kirby covers with this one?

Wow Nintendo really did a amazing job with the Kirby collection. Hopefully someone takes note of this on the corporate level if they decide to make any more compilations this is a great standard to go off of.

Look at the disc art! That's just packed to the brim with awesome Kirby artwork. Too bad bubble gum is not included :cry:.

The first game I'm booting up is Kirby's Dreamland since that was my first Kirby game. Then Return to Dreamland 3 since I've heard some good things about it and I never played it since back in 1996 I had moved on to the PS 1.
