Kirby Dream Realm is a 2.5D and 3D Kirby platformer for the Nintendo 3DS made by Pika Productions and published by Nintendo. Like most Kirby games Kirby goes through unique colorful worlds while using his signature Inhale and Copy to use his enemy's abilities. This time Kirby can travel in 3D in some parts or a whole level. Using Nintendo Network communications up to 4 players can play minigames together. But if IR is used than the same can be done but with the addition of 4 players assisting you on adventure mode. The game is the reference of 25 years of Kirby.

Unlike most Kirby games Kirby Dream Realm is a 3D platformer allowing the player to control in all directions. But like most Kirby games Kirby and co. can inhale and spit enemies and swallow to copy a certain kind of enemy's ability. Kirby also can be in 2D in some parts of levels. Some copy abilities vary on the dimension like Beam, in 2D it attacks vertically starting from up then down and in 3D it goes horizontally from right to left. In Kirby Dream Realm the player can store three items in bubbles in the botttom half of the screen. The player can play six different sub-games as a small and fun distraction, in these Sub-Games the player can play as some other characters unlocked in story mode like King Dedede. When a player joins in and chooses the same character as one player then they become a "recolor" of that character. In normal levels there are three to four collectibles called Bonus Orbs that unlock stuff when enough are collected.The bit of Kirby Dream Realm is the bit of Kirby Super Star Ultra and bit of Kirby Mass Attack.
