There's Kirby, sitting and sleeping as always while King Dedede and his newest minion Waddle Daa are thinking on making a prank on him. Meanwhile in the galaxy, Meta Knight is traveling. Captain Vul notices something big and tells Sailor Dee to tell Meta Knight about this. When they look, they see some kind of spaceship near them and approaching Popstar. Meta Knight immediately flies to Popstar to tell the others about this.
Then Meta Knight finds Kirby sleeping and wakes him up (thus ruining King Dedede and Waddle Daa's plans on making a prank on him). Meta Knight tells Kirby about the "spaceship". Coincidentally, the spaceship they were talking about just arrives Dream Land. A shadow silhouette appears near them and runs. Kirby and Meta Knight follows it and they see the silhouette stealing one of the Rose Sceptres, leaving the other one there to escape from Kirby and Meta Knight. After stealing it, a worried being appears yelling at himself and complaining about what happened. He sees Kirby and shows himself as Prince Ros. He's the guardian of the Roses, who protects them. But not only Roses, but also any kind of flowers.
He tells Kirby that without the two Rose Sceptres, the flowers will lose their energy and will start disappearing and neither will shall fruits. He also tells Kirby that the Rose Sceptres posses a great power that may even change the fate of people. Kirby is worried about this and decides to help Prince Ros. Meta Knight joins them too, and King Dedede along with Waddle Daa appear behind them and yelling that they will also go with them. After this, Kirby and friends start their newest adventure to save Pop Star as well as the whole universe from this evil being.
The gameplay of the game is pretty similar to the classic Kirby games due to being a side-scrolling platform game, but it also brings back and shares similarity with the gameplay from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, as the 2.5D gameplay is similar. Some parts of the game are completely 3D however (like 3D Mario games). Kirby is able to make his standard moves like jumping, running, swimming, inhaling, etc. With the inhale move, just like in almost all of the Kirby games, Kirby is able to swallow objects and enemies, so he can copy his opponents' abilities to use them, however, Kirby can lose an ability if requested or if enough damage is received. Another way to get opponents' abilities is by using Copy Pedestals found in some parts of the stages. Similar to the Bubble Storage from Kirby: Squeak Squad, the game brings the Star Storage, which is actually the same to the Bubble Storage, but instead of bubbles these are stars with a symbol showing what the star contains. Kirby can turn foes into "helpers". He's also able to have up to 3 helpers that can help him, and he can ride on them like he can do with the other playable characters. When turning foes into helpers, they change of color to look different from normal enemies, this is something shown in the cancelled Kirby game for the GameCube.
Kirby's Dream Land 3D brings back returning standard abilities, as well as new ones. The health bar returns as usual, and food is used to replenish the health bar (the Maxim Tomato replenishes the entire health bar). There are a few items that are required in some stages such as protecting umbrellas, cannons, Warp Stars, etc. The game supports up to a total of 4 characters, those are Kirby, Meta Knight, King Dedede, and a new character, minion of King Dedede, Waddle Daa, each character having their own abilities, advantages, as well as disadvantages. The player can also change Kirby's color. Minigames such as The Arena and The True Arena appear after completing the game. If the player completes the game 100%, The True Arena will be unlocked. Other Minigames however, can be unlocked by collecting a determined amount of Magic Orbs.
There are 8 levels, each one containing a determined amount of stages, depending on which level the player is. Each level has a Boss, and various stages can also contain Mid-Bosses. Stages may also contain Magic Orbs, which are collectible items in the game, there's a total of 150 Magic Orbs, and an amount of 100 is needed to make the Dimension Traveler operate again, and defeat Rozery, the villain of the game. After the player finishes a stage, a little bonus can be played. In this bonus, some stars containing something inside them appear, they may contain any type of food, a Maxim Tomato, an extra life, or a Gordo, which gives nothing. The player can launch the character from a cannon, and depending on which direction the character is shot, he/she will get or not the items shown on the way. Then the character will make a winning move, different to each character. Kirby makes the Kirby dance, Meta Knight swings his sword, King Dedede makes some poses with his hammer and Waddle Daa dances with her umbrella. Each level has an hub where you can access its stages. The stage's hubs are accessed from The Magical Centennial Palace, which appears to be the main hub in the game with various rooms to practice moves, complete challenges, buy items, and decorate rooms as well. The Dimension Traveler is also inside The Magical Centennial Palace and the player can play minigames and see the Copy Abilities' movesets.
1 to 4 players (Nintendo Network Support)
In this mode you can freely play in all of the unlocked levels and stages with your friends. You can also play with people online with the Nintendo Network Connection. Players can perform the ability to ride on each other. They can also share food to replenish everyone's health (including helpers) and can perform other abilities (such as Kirby inhaling and spitting other players, or King Dedede throwing others at higher places).
1 to 2 players
Only two players can play in this mode. Here is where the player has to pass stages and levels to unlock them to be player in Multiplayer Mode, and where the detailed story takes place, with 3D cutscenes and everything. Player 1 is Kirby, while Player 2 can be either Meta Knight, King Dedede or Waddle Daa.
1 to 4 players
This mode contains various Kirby themed minigames. Only 3 minigames are in the game from the beginning, with other 3 being unlockable.
1 to 4 players (Nintendo Network Support)
Players in this mode will confront all of the bosses from the story and can also choose their abilities before starting to use them thoughout the battles. The final boss is Rozery.
The True Arena
1 to 4 players (Nintendo Network Support)
This mode is actually similar to The Arena, as the player needs to battle with Bosses and choose their abilities before starting. However, bosses in this mode are not regular ones, instead they're in their "Rose" counterparts, and their names appear after an "R". Bosses from past Kirby games can be found here, such as Marx, Zero Two and Daroach. The final boss is Rozery Soul.
Sound Test Room
A mode where you just listen to music and sounds shown in the game. This mode needs to be unlocked, and it is unlocked after completing Story Mode. It doesn't have to be 100% completed to unlock it.
This mode allows the player to see all of the cutscenes seen throughout the story, from minor cutscenes to cutsenes that do even have dialogues. This mode is unlocked after completing Story Mode.
This is a mode where the player can adjust the game's settings such as the sound, music, screen ratio, controls, etc. And even delete the game file's progress, but after being deleted the game data cannot be restored. Some extra options can be downloaded as DLC.
As said before, this mode contains various Kirby minigames. There are 3 minigames available from the start, and another 3 unlockables. To see the rules, gameplay, unlocking criteria and other stuff from the minigames, please see:

This is a section about this game and to see people opinions.
- This game brings back almost every Copy Ability seen in past Kirby installments
- The abilities not shown in this game are Balloon, Ball (maybe because of the fact that Spring has a similar moveset), Backdrop (Suplex is near-identical), Copy, Light, Smash and Mini. Plasma can be considered in since its abilities are attached to Spark's moveset and Spark's design is actually Plasma's, but is still being Spark.
- Kirby's Robot Copy Ability hat/appearance highly resembles Samus Aran's helmet, but silver instead.
- Bulb Kirby and Lava Kirby are similar to two Copy Ability mixes seen in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.
