Another (new) year, another special illustration starring Kirby and company. This time around we see him take the stage in his Festival best, a sight that sends the crowd running for their lives. Susie, the Jambastian trio, Dedede, and Waddle Dee all look ready to take part as well, though it’ll be hard to follow up Kirby if his singing has the usual effect…


The theme for the image is based on an annual music event broadcast in Japan, the NHK Kohaku Uta Gassen. This special stage presentation divides popular singers into red and white teams and has them face off in a song battle. It’s its own kind of New Year’s tradition, though they’ve never had a star of the show like Kirby take the stage.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
