Kirby's Dream Collection Challenge stages dream big

While the majority of the upcoming Kirby's Dream Collection is made up of previously released content (Kirby's Dream Land, Kirby's Dream Land 2, Kirby's Adventure, Kirby's Dream Land 3, Kirby Super Star and Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards), there is a little bit of new stuff here. There are 10 challenge levels that appear to use the engine from last year's Kirby's Return to Dreamland, and they look pretty great. 

I've always been a little lukewarm to the Kirby games. I've always liked them but rarely loved them. They tend to feel too unfocused to grab and keep my attention for any length of time. That doesn't seem to be the case with these challenge levels. From the looks of it, they bring an intensity to the direction and pacing that you don't always get with the series. It's the style of these challenge levels, and the pure amount of content in this collection (including a CD soundtrack and art book) that has convinced me to pick up when it released on Sept. 16th.

Kirby's Dream Collection is a bundle of some of the best Kirby games ever for the Wii in celebration of the 20th anniversary.

If that's not enough, Nintendo is throwing in a new challenge mode to give something new to longtime fans of the series.
