Gameplay[edit]

The main feature of Kirby's Dream Collection is that it is a compilation of six of the original Kirby titles. These are, in order of chronological release: Kirby's Dream Land, Kirby's Adventure, Kirby's Dream Land 2, Kirby Super Star, Kirby's Dream Land 3, Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. All of these titles are based on the Wii Virtual Console releases and retain all emulator features of these releases; this also extends to the two handheld titles, which were never released on the Wii's Virtual Console service.

In addition to the six games, the collection also features Challenge Stages, in which the player must clear stages based around a specific Copy Ability similar to the ones featured in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. Finally available is Kirby's History, in which the player can view an interactive timeline of all previous Kirby titles.
