Earlier this month, we saw Nintendo debut a new read-along video series called It’s Kirby Time, based on the Japanese children’s book series of the same name. Today sees the second installment in this adorable series, wherein Kirby goes on a journey seeking the legendary Heart Fruit.

Just like the first episode (“Kirby’s Tiny World”), the latest video features beautiful artwork from the It’s Kirby Time books with spoken narration. This time it is based on the “Take Courage” book, which sees Kirby journey across many lands and overcome harsh conditions in his quest to find a special fruit. The legend goes that one bite of the Heart Fruit will fill an adventurer’s heart with courage.



The It’s Kirby Time books were only released in Japan, and this new video series is the first time we’re seeing an official translation from Nintendo. There are currently eight books in total and the latest installment, “Kirby’s Birthday,” was released earlier this week, so we can expect to see more of them in video format soon!
