The Kirby series of games is one of the few long running Nintendo game series, debuting on the Game Boy and making its home console debut on the Nintendo Entertainment System. Kirby games are generally developed by HAL Laboratory, but are always published by Nintendo exclusively for their home console and portable gaming systems. The games star the titular character Kirby, a round pink with the trademark ability of being able to inhale enemies and copy their powers.

Main series

The Kirby series began in 1992, with the release of Kirby's Dream Land. Core games in the Kirby series are 2D platforming games, in which the character can fly indefinitely as well as inhale enemies and either spit them out or swallow them to obtain a Copy Ability, allowing Kirby to use that enemy's powers. Kirby's Adventure, the second title in the series, was the first to feature Copy Abilities. Many following games have since added their own unique features and abilities.

Spin-off games

Other media

A 100 episode animated adaptation of the series, titled Kirby: Right Back at Ya!, was produced by Warpstar Inc. and aired from 2001 to 2003 in Japan over four seasons. The series was later licensed by 4Kids Entertainment for broadcast in English, airing from 2002 to 2006. In Japan episodes of the series were broadcast on the Minna no Theater Wii channel from 2009 to 2012, and in Europe episodes were released through the Kirby TV Channel in 2011. In 2012, a two-part video based on the series, titled "Kirby 3D", was released in Japan in 2009 over the Wii no Ma service, and was later released for Nintendo 3DS in stereoscopic 3D over the Nintendo Video service in 2012, where it was first broadcast worldwide.
