Kirby Super Star is a 1996 platforming video game developed by HAL Laboratory and published by Nintendo for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, part of the Kirby series of platforming video games by HAL Laboratory. The game was advertised as featuring eight games: seven short subsections with the same basic gameplay, and two minigames. The game was later released for the Wii and Wii U Virtual Consoles. An enhanced remake titled Kirby Super Star Ultra was released for the Nintendo DS in 2008.
In Kirby Super Star, players play as Kirby, who can float, inhale blocks and enemies and spit them out. By swallowing certain enemies after inhaling them, Kirby can copy their abilities and use them as his own, becoming able to perform a wide range of attacks. A unique feature of the game is the addition of helpers. When Kirby has an ability, he can transform it into a helper character which can be controlled by a second player or the computer. Certain abilities such as Crash or Mike cannot be turned into helpers. Kirby can choose to give the helper a different form, or revert them into a power up in an emergency. Certain helpers, such as Wheelie, allow Kirby to interact with them during two player play. If the helper takes too much damage, there is a short time for Kirby to grant it a new power before it disappears until Kirby creates a new one. However, if Kirby takes too much damage, he will lose a life.
A remake of the game, titled Kirby Super Star Ultra was released for the Nintendo DS in 2008. It includes all games found in the original, but adds several new ones, as well as featuring enhanced graphics, music, and sound effects and including 3D FMV cutscenes for all of the levels. Some translations are different; for example, what was translated as "Sir Meta-Knight" in the Super NES version is now translated as "Lord Meta Knight" in the DS version, and some Great Cave Offensive treasures' names have been re-translated to reference other Nintendo series as they did in the Japanese version.
