eShop Guide: All 55 Kirby 3DS and Wii U Digital Downloads to Purchase Before The Closure

Tomorrow, a sad event is upon the entire Nintendo community. March 27th is nearly here, and the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U eShop are in their final hours. Soon it will be impossible to purchase games from either digital store forever. To prepare you for the inevitable, we have compiled a guide detailing all 55 digital downloads available across the 3DS and Wii U eShop that feature Kirby--yes, there really are that many!


While there may be 16 Kirby games on the 3DS eShop and 14 games on the Wii U to purchase, there are also a large handful of digital downloads to account for that feature the pink puff in some capacity. For those interested in picking up potentially every piece of digital content that features Kirby on the 3DS and Wii U, this is every video game, virtual console release, application, and home menu theme to purchase on the eShop before its doors close permanently!

And that is every Kirby-related digital download you can pick up on the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U eShop! A huge chunk of Kirby's history will evidently be unavailable for some time after tomorrow. Hopefully, the majority of these missing games will one day return to modern systems in some form, whether that be through Nintendo Switch Online or Nintendo's next system.


Thank you for all the memories, Nintendo eShop. You gave us so much Kirby content over this past decade, and Your music will be stuck in our heads forever.
