Kirby's Adventure, known as Hoshi no Kirby: Yume no Izumi no Monogatari (星のカービィ 夢の泉の物語, Hoshi no Kābī: Yume no Izumi no Monogatari, lit. "Kirby of the Stars: The Story of the Fountain of Dreams") in Japan, is a platforming video game developed by HAL Laboratory and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Entertainment System video game console. It was first released March 26, 1993 in Japan, and was later released in North America on May 1, 1993, and in Europe on December 1, 1993. Kirby's Adventure was the second and last game to use Kirby's original design, albeit in color (the first to use the design was Kirby's Dream Land) and is the first game in the series for Kirby to gain his trademark colors (as the first game to feature him was in black and white).
Kirby's Adventure is the only Nintendo Entertainment System Kirby video game, and is the second game in the Kirby series, following his debut on the Game Boy in Kirby's Dream Land. It is also the first Kirby game on a home console, to be in color, and to have a save feature. It also features the first appearance of the popular character Meta Knight. A remake of the game for the Game Boy Advance, titled Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land, was released in 2002.
The original version has been released on the Virtual Console in North America on February 12, 2007, in Europe on February 16, 2007, and in Japan on February 27, 2007. It was also one of the 12 "Masterpieces" (demos of famous Nintendo games) provided in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. A 3D Classics version was released for the Nintendo 3DS eShop in November 2011.
