Nintendo Marks Kirby's 30th Anniversary Year

The creators of Kirby have promised more to come to celebrate 30 years of Kirby in 2022.


2022 marks the 30th anniversary of Nintendo's iconic Kirby series, with Kirby's Dream Land having released for the Game Boy in Japan on April 27, 1992. While the actual anniversary is still a few months off, Nintendo has acknowledged the anniversary year by releasing a free wallpaper for fans and promising more is still to come.

The anniversary wallpaper features a collection of different Kirbys, spanning 30 years of Kirby titles. For now, Nintendo hasn't announced any of its other plans for the 30th anniversary, though it has promised that we can expect news on forthcoming events and activities soon.
