A diminuitive pink creature orbiting in space called "Kirby" crash lands into Dream Land. Once getting acquainted with the citizens who live there in Cappy Town, he begins to defend the town from the monsters that King Dedede
, the self-proclaimed ruler of Cappy Town, orders from the evil Nightmare Enterprises.
In the midst of a peaceful slumber, Kirby
and his spaceship take an unexpected nosedive to an unknown planet, and crash into Dream Land! There, Kirby
discovers that the locals are being ruled under the whims of King Dedede
, an ambitious and somewhat cruel fellow who has a hobby of buying evil beasts for great deals – beasts which he often sends Kirby’s way due to his hatred of the pink puffball! Behind the scenes is the Emperor of Darkness, Nightmare, who controls the galaxy and manufactures these beasts. After King Dedede
destroys his spaceship, it seems Kirby
is in for the long haul. Can Kirby
help the people of Dream Land and stay alive in the process?
