This week in the Nintendo Download, it’s Kirby’s birthday, and the company is celebrating with a sea of pink! Almost all the additions to the eShop are Kirby related, from a new Kirby: Planet Robobot demo, to the DS’s Kirby Mass Attack, to the long-awaited digital debut of Kirby’s Epic Yarn. There’s also Kirby’s Dream Course, which was a golf game where Kirby was the ball.

The only thing that would complete this would be a side of pink pancakes from Kirby Cafe, but alas, we don’t have those in America yet. For more deals and discounts, browse Nintendo’s press release below.
