Now Playing: Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards - Nintendo 64 - Nintendo Switch Online

In GameSpot's Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards review, we said, "While some might be initially put off by the youthful nature of Kirby 64, the depth of the power combo system really brings a lot to what would otherwise be an average platformer. Nintendo 64 owners should definitely give this one a look."

Kirby 64 is the first game in the series to feature 3D computer graphics. Coincidentally, the pink puff's latest adventure, Kirby and the Forgotten Land, is the first game in the series with fully explorable 3D areas and is now available on Nintendo Switch. In GameSpot's Kirby and the Forgotten Land review, we said, "Kirby and the Forgotten Land is one of those games that's hard to play without constantly having a silly smile on your face."
