Kirby's Dream Land 3 is the fifth installment of the and the third game with Dream Land in its title. While it is preceded directly by Kirby Super Star, it is designed to be a direct sequel to Kirby's Dream Land 2, and is considered to be the second game in the Dark Matter trilogy of the series, in which Dark Matter is a recurring villain. The game wasn't very popular, since it was one of the last games released on the SNES, and even failed to see a release in PAL regions due to problems with localization. Reception on the game is mixed, as some feel it's a step down from Kirby Super Star's intricate copy ability system, while others praised its Animal Friend system and unique art style.
Being a direct sequel to Kirby's Dream Land 2, Kirby's Dream Land 3 reuses many elements from its predecessor, including the appearance of Animal Friends and the low number of copy abilities. Kirby must journey across multiple worlds and stages to confront and defeat Dark Matter. He is helped by Gooey, a blob of Dark Matter that serves as the second player in multiplayer, as well as a group of Animal Friends who have their own unique abilities. Kirby must also collect the Heart Stars in every level to be able to defeat the final boss.
