Kirby Star Allies - fastest-selling boxed Kirby game in United Kingdom

This comes from GamesIndustry's Christopher Dring...

''Down at No.2 is a new Nintendo Switch release in the form of Kirby Star Allies. It's actually the fastest-selling boxed Kirby game released ever, and there have been 19 Kirby retail titles since 1996.

Previously, the highest charting Kirby games was Kirby Triple Deluxe (2014) on 3DS and Kirby: Planet Robot (2015) also on 3DS. Both games reached 15th place. The series has been gradually increasing in popularity, although the demand for new Switch products - coupled with a quiet release week - are two big reasons Star Allies has appeared so highly this week.''

Blast from the Past - Sakurai discusses the creation of Kirby

Back in 2003, Kirby was already 12 years old. The character had become a well-established part of the Nintendo lineup. This was all thanks to Masahiro Sakurai, the creator of the Kirby. For the 12th anniversary of the character, Sakurai took to Famitsu to write a feature on how the character came to be. Our friends at SourceGaming have translated the feature, which you can see a small snippet of below.

“I’ll make an action game where you utilize your enemies!” That was the idea I had in mind when I wrote up the project proposal that Kirby was born from. Then he was drawn in pixel art, animated on the NES, and given the power to inhale his foes and spit them back out. Being able to take multiple hits from enemies, yet dying immediately upon falling into a hole didn’t mix well in my mind, so I blew him up like a balloon, so that he could fly at any time. I was in charge of the planning, design, and most of the graphics. And so, the simple Game Boy game, Kirby’s Dream Land, was completed.
