Kirby's Return to Dream Land, known in Japan as Kirby of the Stars Wii (星のカービーWii, Hoshi no Kābī Wii) and in Europe as Kirby's Adventure Wii, is a Kirby video game and the twelfth platform installment of the series, developed by HAL Laboratory and published by Nintendo. While Kirby's Epic Yarn was released in 2010, Kirby's Return to Dream Land is the first traditional Kirby platforming console game since Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, which was released in 2000 for the Nintendo 64. The game was first announced as a Nintendo GameCube title with a projected release date of late 2005, but after many delays development was later shifted to its successor console, the Wii.
Kirby's Return to Dream Land features the staple gameplay of traditional Kirby platform games, in which the titular character Kirby possesses the ability to inhale and copy enemies in order to attain forms which give him a variety of attacks such as breathing fire or swinging a sword. The game supports cooperative multiplayer gameplay, allowing up to four players to control various Kirby characters, including Waddle Dee, King Dedede, and Meta Knight.
