Remember yesterday when we posted about the very awesome Kirby: 20th Anniversary Special Collection from Nintendo? Your eyes lit up, you started throwing money at the screen and you imagined the day your shiny new collection would arrive brinigng you that loveable pink puff of joy.

Well sorry kid, the dream is over.

We received official word from Nintendo Australia that the awesome collection won't be appearing on Australian shores:

Hi Steve,

Thanks for your email, I hope you are well.

Nintendo Australia has no plans to release the Kirby 20th Anniversary Collection at this stage.

Cheers,

Matt - Nintendo Australia

Sorry to burst your bubble. Now's the time to create a Facebook demanding justice for all Kirby fans!

Import it is.
If the UK gets it, just import it from there. Simple.. no real loss for the gamers that like Kirby.

:'@ Damn you Nintendo Australia. Damn you to HELL! [Rage] [Rage] [Rage]
I've contacted Nintendo America and their EU branch also to see if it is even getting a release outside of Japan.
lol.

No great loss imho.

It was announced for release in America (or Europe, or both) awhile back, so it is.

Stable economy [Shifty]

"We can't comment on that at this time."

"Kirby collection isn't getting released!"
Any $$$ that im making at the moment goes towards a Wii U anyway... Don't really care for any shoddy emulated discs.

To be fair, Japan only got its release date a couple of days ago.

I still take the fact they posted this up as a confirmation, as they usually leave out games announced at Nintendo Direct if they're not coming there. But that's just me and my speculation.
