Kirby's Dream Land 3 is a game in the Kirby series, originally released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1997. It is a direct sequel to Kirby's Dream Land 2, featuring many of the same mechanics and characters.


Dream Land's in trouble... AGAIN! Kirby's back for more action in the latest chapter of the Dream Land saga. This time, though, Kirby has more help than he knows what to do with. In addition to his old pals Rick the hamster, Coo the owl and Kine the fish, there are three new friends to assist Kirby (not to mention Gooey, his blobby little sidekick). With all those friends, two-player simultaneous play and many other helpful surprises, Kirby should have no trouble saving Dream Land again, right? Not if King Dedede has anything to say about it!



  • The following characters from other Nintendo franchises make guest appearences. Kirby can earn a Heart Star for them.

Asset re-use

  • Blocky was originally an Adventures of Lolo character (previously developed by HAL).
  • When selecting the Boss Butch game, words "Nintendo 16" appear in the style of Nintendo 64.
