Kirby's Dream Land 2 Reaches Europe Next Week

Posted by James Newton

£3.60 a go

Kirby's back on the 3DS Virtual Console in Europe next week as Kirby's Dream Land 2 hits home.

The Game Boy sequel lands on 17th May for £3.60 and features classic Kirby characters like King Dedede, plus the first appearances of helpers Rick the Hamster, Kine the Fish and Coo the Owl.

With Kirby's Dream Land already on 3DS VC and Kirby's Dream Land 3 on Wii VC, you'll be able to connect the dots next week (as long as you live in Europe).

Very awesome for Europe that they get Kirby's Dream Land 2 for the 3DS VC next week. I used to own this little gem back when I had a Game Boy Pocket back in the day. To me, Kirby's Dream Land 2 was the DEFINITIVE Kirby GAME BOY game to own out of both this one and Kirby's Dream Land. Not saying that Kirby's Dream Land was a bad game, don't get me wrong. I just think that 2 took everything that made 1 fun and added on to it just like how Super Mario Bros. 3 did in comparison to Super Mario Bros. back in the NES era. Can't wait to see if North America is smart enough to add this game to our 3DS VC soon.

The first game was better designed IMO (more original levels, polish), but this game was much longer and has a ton of fun things to do. So bring it to NA now and I'll buy it, Iwata.

Day one purchase. Loved Kirby's Dream Land, the 3D Classics version and Kirby's Block Ball, so excited to see what this one's like.

That's good news, but I already have Amazing Mirror and Kirby's Aventure 3D Classic. Dont feel like paying for more kirby right now - especially when its not in colour.

Kirby's Dream Land 2 was the first ever Kirby game I played, and a very memorable one at that; also, it marks the very first of many appearances (playable, cameo, or otherwise) of the animal helpers Rick, Kine, and Coo :)
@Dracolosse89 - I've always liked this second iteration more than the first one, which is nice to play every once in awhile

I never saw it for sale at all in England when it was supposed to have been released originally. Did anyone see it at all?

This is the only "Dreamland" game (and Returns to Dreamland) I have yet to play. I have to get on the Returns though... Gah!!!

Jealous. I loved this title, and once again North America gets left out. I mean, apparently we will get Kirby's Block Ball, but I'd prefer this.

Thats a January and February game. It's May. And many consider VC separate.
Why shouldn't there be at least a decent VC and 3D game each month? Or even more often, if it's such the eshop is such a key feature?

i find your anti-complaint campaign more annoying than the complainers.

Be lucky we here in the US will be getting Kirby's Block Ball next week man. It's better than not getting anything with the way how we been treated with no GB, GBC or GAME GEAR games as of late. I'm actually looking forward to Kirby's Block Ball next week.

With the exception of Adventure, Dream Course and Epic Yarn, I've found the majority of Kirby games to be either elementary or forgettable. For those reasons I think I'll give this a pass. I am glad though that NOE are continuing their run of releasing virtual console games. I very much hope this continues.

I was ecstatic with this weeks releases. VVVVVV and Monster World IV? Crazy awesome week for Nintendo downloads. Keep it up NOE!

I really wish NA had some of the 3DS VC titles Europe and Japan are getting now, I'm practically dying for Super Mario Land 3: Wario land to come already. :

So.....our VC games are....where? We have a ton of catching up to do in the VC and Europe has a lot of catching uo to do in 3DSWare. Swith us off for a bit Nintendo!

@Rargon

I feel the same way you do man. I just wish we had access to Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 , Kid Icarus: Of Myths And Monsters and the 2 Wario Land GBC games that Nintendo Of Japan just got not too long ago. Kirby's Dream Land 2 is one I can wait a bit longer on, but the 4 games mentioned above are on the top of my 3DS VC wish list for North America as of now.

Never saw it in England. I bought a copy when on holiday in Spain. Apparently it was a PAL version, as it worked on my Game Boy.

@Bass I'm pretty much convinced that it was never released in the UK, as I had a Game Boy and the original Kirby's Dreamland back then, really wanted the sequel and searched everywhere for it but to no avail. I think it was probably like Space Channel 5 2 on PS2....released everywhere else in Europe but not here :( Very strange descision by Nintendo. I've played Dreamland 2 since, but only via emulation and it's a very good game...longer, has some of the copy abilities from the later games and a final unlockable world/proper ending for finding all of the rainbow drops in the other worlds. I'll definitely be downloading it next week.

@CowLaunch Any region games will work on a Game Boy, so it wouldn't have mattered if it was a European release or not :)

well this sucks. Europe is getting basicly everything we North Americans want -_- So....NOA....when the heck are we getting these games europe gets??? Yaya we have VVVVVV, but who really cares, I WANT THESE VC GAMES THEY KEEP GETTING!!!!!!!!!

Apparently Nintendo thinks Europe is in NA and NA is in Europe??? Because it seems Europe wants all the games NA has, and vice versa...

Simple solution... release them all at the same freakin time!!!

@eleven59

Heh, I got one better for you. I can remember not too long ago where Nintendo in BOTH North America and Europe got Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins at the SAME TIME! Same thing happened with some other games also. But I can't remember what they are at the moment, but I know it happened. All in all, the point I'm trying to make here is, big name games for example like Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 or even Kirby's Dream Land 2 should come out in BOTH regions on the same week. Not one long after the other. It's like playing an act of favoritism. Not fun.

How can Nintendo not wanna sell their VC games in all regions, they'd make good money for it! But then again, they'd make good money for selling their GBA games to Non-Ambassadors, but that's not gonna happen. Nintendo, you're business strategies make no sense.

@3DSLUIGI I agree, though that doesn't quite mean the same is happening in Europe.

From what I read, they have no clue when sakura samurai is coming out, so their Nintendo over there is being just as mysterious as ours.

Though I at least hope that we start catching up now that europe has VVVVVV.

@TheDreamingHawk

Well, from what I been hearing with NOE as of late is that some of the gamers in that region are wondering why Mutant Mudds is taking such a long time to come out if I recall right. With me, I do feel sorry that the European crowd don't have it sooner than later like with how we over here have it in North America. It's kind of like with the way of how we're all here complaining about the lack of 3DS VC games support for the eShop for the past 2 months nearly when you think about it.

@3DSLUIGI actually it makes a bit of sense, since Renegade Kid is a smaller developer and is based in the USA. UK and Australian ratings systems are a tad more confusing and developers often get tangled up in the submissions progress; plus it costs more money for them. In Australia we miss out on all the titles the UK misses out, plus a couple of others like Pyramids and VVVVVV, but I think some of us have gotten used to it.

@8bitforever

Well, you gotta remember one thing about NOA. First of all, they have the minds of COMPLETE MORONS when it comes to releasing any GAME BOY, GAME BOY COLOR or GAME GEAR games when it comes to the fact of the North American eShop being vacant for any retro titles showing up for the past 2 months. Second is that to me, they don't know how to market the digital downloads as well as they would like to. Like say for example, it's not as good as how Europe / Australia and Japan market their digital downloads for their eShop with the 3DS VC games. They have been succeeding so far lately. As for where we rank compared to our counterpart regions, we failed as of late.
