Kirby's Return to Dream Land, known in Japan as Kirby of the Stars Wii (星のカービーWii Hoshi no Kābī Wii?) and in Europe as Kirby's Adventure Wii, is a Kirby video game and the twelveth platform installment of the series, in development by HAL Laboratory, and published by Nintendo. While Kirby's Epic Yarn was released in 2010, Kirby's Return to Dream Land is the first traditional Kirby platforming home console game since Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, which was released in 2000 for the Nintendo 64. The title was first released in North America on October 24, 2011, and will be released in Europe on November 25, 2011. In 2015, a digital version of the game was released internationally for the Wii U through the Nintendo eShop.
Kirby's Return to Dream Land features the staple gameplay of traditional Kirby platform games, in which the titular character Kirby possesses the ability to inhale and copy enemies in order to attain forms which give him a variety of attacks such as breathing fire or swinging a sword. The game supports cooperative multiplayer gameplay, allowing up to four players to control various Kirby characters, including Waddle Dee, King Dedede, and Meta Knight. Kirby's plot focuses on the characters retrieving the scattered pieces of a crashed alien spaceship.
