Last week’s episode of Gamnesia’s Nintendo podcast featured Liam Robertson, better known as Tamaki from Unseen64, as a special guest, and towards the end of the discussion we took questions from listeners like you. One of you asked what he knows about many Kirby games that have been cancelled over the years, and most specifically the cancelled GameCube game Nintendo showed off in 2005.

Check out the discussion video above for our full discussion of these games, or keep reading for a brief, brief summary.

Robertson explains that many of these
Kirby games ultimately fell through for one reason or another, but many of their core ideas have returned for future installments. The GameCube title, for example, featured a totem mechanic that surfaced in Kirby’s Return to Dream Land on the Wii. Other Kirby concepts were more vague, but a lot of their rough gameplay ideas have ultimately manifested themselves in Return to Dream Land or Kirby Triple Deluxe.

Colin McIsaac
I first played Donkey Kong Country before even turning three years old, and have since grown into an avid gamer and passionate Nintendo fan. I started working at Zelda Informer in August 2012, and helped found Gamnesia, which launched on February 1, 2013. Outside of the journalism game, I'm an invested musician who loves arranging music from video games and other media. If you care to follow my endeavors, you can check out my channel here: http://youtube.com/user/pokemoneinstein I was rummaging through some things a while back and found my first grade report card. My teacher said, "Oddly enough, Colin doesn't like to write unless it's about computers or computer-type games. In his journal he likes to write about what level he is on in 'Mario Land,' but he doesn't often write about much else." I was pretty amused, given where I am today. Also I have a dog, and he's a pretty cool guy. I don't care for elephants much. I suppose they're okay. You've read plenty now; carry on.
