Since Kirby sucks up anything imaginable, it was only a matter of time before the character began selling hamburgers. That time has come.
On Tuesday, a listing for a new game, Kirby Fighters 2, mysteriously showed up on the Nintendo eShop. Almost as soon as it appeared, it disappeared. Then, last night, without the faintest splash of fanfare, Nintendo released the game into the world.
The latest episode of People Make Games is excellent, not just because it focuses on Nintendo’s legal hero John Kirby (who the character is partially named after), but also his pioneering civil rights work.
