Kirby Dream Land 4 (星のカービィ4 in Japan.) is a 2.5D Platformer developed and published by RECHSOFT for the Nintendo 3DS in Fall 2017. The game focuses around the adventures of Kirby, trying to defeat Dark Matter, revived after the events of Kirby: Planet Robobot.

The game is a 20th anniversary festival for Kirby's Dream Land 3, and, as such, brings many important characters back from it.


One day, Kirby is out wandering in Dream Land when he notices the Love-Love Stick embedded in the ground, where he left it in Kirby's Dream Land 3. Suddenly, it explodes and sprays Heart Stars across Popstar.

Directly after this, a large darkness envelopes the land; Dark Matter has returned! The alien kidnaps important denizens of Popstar, such as Meta Knight, King Dedede, and Whispy Woods. Furious, Kirby goes after Dark Matter, ready to defeat the swordsman at any time.

The levels are similar to Kirby's Dream Land 3, featuring a character in every level that must have a certain goal fulfilled to getting a Heart Star, required to get 100% completion. However, this time, there are multiple characters in the levels; one blatantly shown on the level icon, another hidden in the level, and both having conflicting goals, adding to the replay-ability.

There are a grand total of 102 levels, including the bosses & bonus levels of 8 different worlds and Hyper Zone, an area unlocked by 100% completion.


As a callback to Kirby's Dream Land 3, all the characters use a pastel style with crayon-drawn backgrounds, and Kirby, King Dedede, and Dark Matter reuse their sprites from KDL3.
