Kirby's Return to Dream Land is a game in the Kirby series recently announced for the Wii. The game was developed by HAL Laboratory, and unlike the previous Kirby game for the Wii, Kirby's Epic Yarn, it returns to the series' more traditional gameplay.
The main antagonist of the game is a new character called Magolor, who initially appears to be a friend to Kirby and co. as they help repair his broken airship (the Lor Starcutter). However, after using Kirby and his friends to defeat Landia (the fearsome guardian of the Master Crown- an artifact that gives infinite power to the wearer), Magolor reveals his true motives to take control of the universe.
The game plays like previous Kirby games. In the game kirby can inhale enemies and also copy their abilities. A new feature is the super abilities that kirby can use. His inhale ability also seems to have received an minor change, with kirby being able to spit out a greater star if he inhales a lot of enemies.
The game features a large number of copy abilities. Classic abilities such as Sword and Fire return and are joined by new ones such as the Leaf and Whip ability. Certain abilities may work best for certain enemies; For example, the best one for you to use when fighting a Sphere Doomer is Leaf Kirby. Just keep holding down the 1 button on the Wii Remote and Kirby will have a storm of leaves surrounding him.
