Kirby's Adventure, known in Japan as Hoshi no Kābī: Yume no Izumi no Monogatari (星のカービィ夢の泉の物語 Hoshi no Kābī Yume no Izumi no Monogatari?, lit. "Kirby of the Stars: The Story of the Fountain of Dreams"), is a platform video game developed by HAL Laboratory and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Entertainment System. It was first released in Japan on November 30, 1992. A month later it was released in North America on December 25, 1992, and in Europe on February 1, 1993.

Kirby's Adventure is the only NES Kirby video game, and is the second game in the Kirby series, following his debut on the Game Boy in Kirby's Dream Land. It has since been remade on the Game Boy Advance as Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land.

The original version has been released on the Wii Virtual Console. It was released in North America on February 12, 2007, in Europe on February 16, 2007, and in Japan on February 27, 2007. It was also one of the 12 "Masterpieces" (demos of famous games) provided in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It was also included in Kirby's Dream Collection. A 3D version was released for the Nintendo 3DS in the 3D Classics line with graphical glitches and slow downs fixed. The original version was also released on the Wii U's Virtual Console.


After Kirby wakes up from his after-lunch nap without having any dreams, he goes to the Fountain of Dreams to investigate. In doing so, he discovers that King Dedede has stolen the Star Rod, the source of power to the Fountain of Dreams, and broken it into seven pieces, giving six fragments to his allies and keeping one himself. Without the Star Rod, all of the inhabitants of Dream Land are becoming restless and unable to dream. Kirby decides to track down the fragments of the Star Rod and bring them back to the Fountain of Dreams in order to restore everyone's dreams.
