The lovable Kirby returns to the Game Boy! This time the bridges connecting the rainbow bridges have disappeared and King Dedede is to blame as always...or is he? The evil Dark Matter has him under his control and plans to turn Dream Land into a dark world. Kirby's goal is get the fabled rainbow sword and defeat him!

Gameplay consists of a platform game. Kirby is like no other platform character of its time because he can fly with no power-ups, and he can swallow enemies and get their powers. In addition to that, Kirby can now team up with his friends: Rick the hamster, Kine the fish, and Coo the owl. Each team-up has it's advantages and disadvantages, but Kirby can still swallow enemies, making more different powers available depending on the power/friend combination.

There are currently no topics for this game.



There are two endings depending on if you get the Rainbow Sword or not (this means that you need to complete the game with a 100% rating), If you do, you'll be able to fight the Dark Matter and see the "real" ending.

Version differences

If you play Kirby's Dream Land 2 on the Super Game Boy instead of on a regular Game Boy, when you see the title screen, you will hear an applause sound effect.
