In 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, Kirby and his friends are back in an adventure designed to satisfy longtime Kirby fans and beginners alike. When an alien spaceship crashes in the otherwise peaceful realm of Pop Star, its pieces are scattered throughout the land. Players must guide Kirby as he retrieves the ship’s parts and helps the aliens return to their home planet. This time, however, he’s not alone. At any time, up to three more players can join in the fun and play as Meta Knight, King Dedede and Waddle Dee to help Kirby in his quest.
In OpenGL and Vulkan, shadows appear as tall black blobs instead of proper shadows. If on Windows, use D3D to avoid this problem. See issue 5094. Fixed by 5.0-730.
With this code, the arena and some mini games are unstretched.
