Hoshi no Kirby is Mine (Again)!

Many years back, I was at a GameStop when I stumbled across a Japanese Kirby game for the Game Boy! I was really surprised because I had never seen the game before, so I didn’t even know which game it was. I bought it, of course…

…and then traded it in the next day for Pokémon Blue! The reason I traded it back in was because when I got it home and played it, the only words that were in Japanese were the title screen- everything else was in English! I guess I felt kind of gypped or something, who knows. Pretty shortly after I traded it in, I regretted my decision. I still wanted that Japanese Kirby game, even if it wasn’t that different from what I had!

Fast forward to present day, when I found said game on Amazon.com for a ridiculously cheap price! I couldn’t resist buying it, and it came in today!

Hello old friend!

The game is officially called 星のカービィ, which translates to Hoshi no Kirby. It is known as Kirby’s Dream Land in North America. I immediately tried the game out, and was so happy to see the title screen pop up with no issues!

So fun!

I played through the first level just to test the game out, and it played beautifully.

Fly, Kirby!!

I played this game on my Game Boy Advance SP, not my Game Boy. My original Game Boy has a problem where it doesn’t display the whole screen, so I don’t play it too often anymore. Luckily, there are many other options when it comes to playing my original Game Boy games! 🙂

Anyway, I’m so happy to have this game back in my possession! I always kicked myself in the butt for trading it in, so I was happy to have another chance to purchase it!

Oh yeah, and by the way: Game Boy games aren’t region locked! I’m able to play without any sort of modification to my system. Ah, I miss the simpler days of gaming sometimes…
