Kirby's History

The Japanese Version contains some comic strips that weren't included in the US Version. Also, in the Japanese version every year is filled with something except 1991 where there is an 8-bit statue of Kirby. Since some Kirby media wasn't released in North America, all of the empty years were replaced with 8-bit statues of Kirby, Lololo and Lalala, Waddle Dee, King Dedede, Meta Knight, and Magolor.

Challenge Stages

  • In the Japanese version of the game, during the tutorial, a red circle will appear whenever an action is properly completed. In the US version, a green check mark will appear instead. This was most likely changed to avoid confusion. This change is also in Kirby's Return to Dream Land and Kirby Triple Deluxe.
  • The Japanese version does not use commas to separate thousands for points that are at least a thousand. This was an addition to the US version.
  • To separate the seconds and centiseconds for the timer, the Japanese version uses a colon (:) while the US version uses a dot (.).
  • One of the level names was changed in the US version of the game.
Japan US
Apricot Apart (アプリコット アパート) Apricot Atrium
  • At the last screen of the credits, the text "The End" was changed from all caps in the Japanese version to just capitalizing the first letter of the words in the US version.
