Kirby Super Star Ultra (星のカービィ ウルトラスーパーデラックス Hoshi no Kābī Urutora Sūpā Derakkusu??, lit. "Kirby of the Stars Ultra Super Deluxe") is a Nintendo DS remake of the Super NES game Kirby Super Star. It includes all games found in the original, but adds several new ones. In addition, the game features 3D full motion video cutscenes for all of the levels and the title sequence, improves the visuals from Super Star, and adds to/modifies the gameplay in some ways (most notable is the DS version's multiplayer feature).

Kirby Super Star Ultra features several new games. The first new levels are the sub-games, which include Snack Tracks, Kirby Card Swipe, and Kirby on the Draw. All of these games feature four Kirbies, and the objective in them is to get the most points. The rest must be unlocked after completing the original five levels.

There are also four new levels, though two of them are remakes of earlier games. The first is Revenge of the King, a harder version of Spring Breeze. It has modified level layouts, several new enemy designs, and several features from Kirby's Dream Land, which Spring Breeze is a remake of, that Spring Breeze did not include, such as the boss Kabula. It features a different plot involving King Dedede being angry over his loss in Spring Breeze, and wanting revenge on Kirby.

The second is Meta Knightmare Ultra, where the player controls Meta Knight through Spring Breeze, Dyna Blade, The Great Cave Offensive, Revenge of Meta Knight, and Milky Way Wishes. Meta Knight retains most of his moves from Revenge of Meta Knight, but in an unusual fashion. He only uses his sword, unlike Kirby who can use a plethora of weapons, but there are powerful abilities the player can use by touching the bottom screen. When Meta Knight defeats an enemy, he gets a certain amount of power points, which he needs to use these touch-activated techniques. The game records the player's best time for their run of each game in Meta Knightmare Ultra. The game has various changes to some levels, such as blocking access to bonus rooms, and a different plot. Though it is never directly stated, Meta Knight appears to be doing all this as a form of training.

The third new level is Helper to Hero, which is a remake of the Arena, but the player controls a lone Helper instead of Kirby. The final new level is The True Arena, which is similar to Arena, but only contains the new bosses featured in Ultra.
