Finally, a source for my Kirby dissertation
The Kirby Character Encyclopedia is now available via Amazon Japan and the Japanese Bookwalker stores online. It can be purchased as a physical book, or in digital format for Kindle devices. Right now, it’s only available in Japanese, so keep that in mind if you’re interested in purchasing. On Amazon Japan, the paperback version goes for 1,650 yen (~$11), while the Kindle version is 1,485 yen (~$10).
The encyclopedia includes details and backgrounds for every Kirby character and enemy from across all the Kirby games, including Kirby and the Forgotten Land. There’s no sign that the book will be localized or released in other regions as of now. This sure does seem like a great resource for Kirby fans though!
See below for a preview of just a few of the many informative pages included in the Kirby Character Encyclopedia, along with the book’s official description.
