Kirby Super Star Ultra

Parents need to know that this is a remake of an old Super NES game recommended for ages 3 years and up. The game contains a series of short platform-style games, some perhaps too short. It's E-rated, with mild cartoon violence that includes the use of a sword and some shooting. Recommended for ages 3 years and up
age 6+


KST Is a awesome game and like all Kirby games, geared towards beginners. But, like all HAL games (EarthBound, Mother 3,) this gets a little dark on the end of some modes (Milky way Deans, the TRUE arena,) but NEARLY not as much as other games has has made. (Mother 3, I'm looking at you.)

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Easy to play/use
