Pretty soon Kirby will turn 23 in the West, and Nintendo of America has announced that the mascot will have a a few classics on the Wii U eShop this week to celebrate. The download update is on 30th July, a couple of days before the 23rd Anniversary of Kirby's Dream Land being released in North America.

As you can see in the teasing tweet below, NoA isn't yet ready to spill on what those three games will be.

We've had a little look at which Kirby games have arrived on the Wii U eShop in Europe but not yet in North America, as that could point to which titles are coming. It seems there are three games yet to reach NA - Kirby's Epic Yarn, Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards and Kirby Squeak Squad. That doesn't mean these are the three games, but is perhaps a reasonable bet.

In any case, all will become clear later in the week; which past-gen Kirby titles do you want on the eShop?

With thanks to Ryan Millar for the heads up.
