It’s been 25 years since the insatiable pink puffball called Kirby starred in his debut title, Kirby’s Dream Land on the Game Boy. Nintendo is celebrating Kirby’s 25th anniversary with a 25% off digital sale on Kirby titles for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. The sale ends at 9am Pacific/12 pm Eastern on August 8.

Thanks to the Virtual Console you can play all the original Kirby games, including the monochrome Kirby’s Dream Land via Nintendo 3DS. The sale includes titles from the early 90s Game Boy era up to last year’s Kirby: Planet Robobot for Nintendo 3DS.

Here are the full list of games and their sale prices on the Kirby sale. All games are 25% off.

Nintendo 3DS

  • Kirby: Planet Robot $29.99
  • Kirby: Triple Deluxe $14.99
  • 3D Classics: Kirby’s Adventure $5.24
  • Kirby’s Dream Land $2.99
  • Kirby’s Dream Land 2 $2.99

During this year’s E3, Nintendo unveiled a trailer for an upcoming, untitled Kirby game for the Nintendo Switch. It looks like a more traditional Kirby platformer than hand-held recent entries. No release date other than 2018 was given.

Despite it being Kirby’s 25th anniversary, it’s been a quiet year for the pink hero. Only two Kirby games have released, both stand-along spin-offs from mini-games found in Planet Robobot. A third spin-off Kirby game is yet untitled but supposed to release later this winter.

The Kirby 25th Anniversary Sale ends August 8.
