There...isn't really any official recognition of this day, but it's worth mentioning anyway. Today is August 1, the day that the first Kirby's Dream Land was released in North America. That's 27 years he's been around--certainly a feat worth celebrating. Just two days from today is August 3, the release day of Kirby's Dream Land for you PAL folks.

I know we already celebrated his "true" birthday on April 27, but why not celebrate our favorite pink puffball once more? Cheers!

Are there any Kirby games that sold more than the first Kirby's Dream Land? When I checked the sales, it surprised me that none of the games has surpassed it. I wonder why the first Kirby was able to sell so well. I guess it was a very good-looking Game Boy game and that it fits the demographic well by being on the simpler side.

Thank you for reading.

Indeed, the first Kirby's Dream Land is the best-selling Kirby game, selling over 5 million copies. Kirby 2 was second until Star Allies surpassed it, both selling just under 2.5 million each.

It would seem to me that Super Star Ultra is the second-best selling game, if the source is of any indication. It's amazing that the second-best selling game is the closest to 3 million, but it's not there.
