A great game gets an underwhelming paint job

In 1993 the NES got a latter-day boon from a truly brilliant addition to its library: Kirby's Adventure. Still regarded today as one of the strongest titles on the console, it boasted an unforgettable soundtrack, stunningly creative visuals and gameplay...

The 3D effect is weak compared to in other 3D-Classics, but it still adds a lot of nice detail to the environment. The makeover isnt the best of the 3D-Classics, but the gameplay by far the greatest.

This is one of my favorite NES games, I would buy if I didn't have the Wii VC version. Can't wait to see the online video on the eShop though, so I can see the 3D effect.

To recommend to everyone. Very fun to play.

Kirby's Adventure as a 3D Classic is definitely a surprise because everything that came before it was either an arcade game or an arcade styled NES game. Also, NA/EU/AU got a 3D Classic before Japan for once.
However, I hope this doesn't stop Nightmare in Dreamland from coming to the eShop as well if it ever starts selling GBA games. There are many games that have multiple versions of the same game on the Wii VC, and the biggest Kirby fans would buy both this and NiD anyways.

Hilarious, I just got a toaster NES in the mail yesterday (was in a retro mood) and the first game I played was Kirby Adventure...then I go on the 3DS store today and boom...3D Kirby Adventure.

Say what you will about the 3D element being unnecessary or underwhelming. I'd play this game a million and a half times with the slider up or down.

I've shown this game to some people who end up being legitimately baffled by the fact that it is a NES game and not a SNES game. A smidgen of slowdown is the only giveaway. This is Kirby's first console game and arguably his finest moment. There's enough levels, secrets, mini-games and abilities to keep any gamer busy for quite a long time, but to me the general accessibility and play-ability is what makes this game so bomb.
