Sandwiched in between there's been Mass Attack on DS and this remastered 3D version of a classic NES platformer. Not that it looks like much has been done to it: 3D Classics Kirby's Adventure doesn't fill the screen, with big pink borders surrounding the play area. Indeed the 3D effect is so minimal it's barely noticeable and only makes things darker.
Once you've got over that, this really is an excellent platformer, second only to Super Mario Land in the 3DS Virtual Console lineup. It's classic Kirby: you float around Dream Land, gobbling up enemies and copying their abilities in a bid to gather the pieces of the Star Rod.
There are some fun mini-games in between levels and it's more difficult than recent Kirby games - the battle against Mr Shine and Mr Bright is an example of a tricky early boss. If you've already got this from the Wii Virtual Console, the 3D doesn't justify the price, but for everyone else this is another ace Kirby game.
