Loveable pink marshmallow-lookalike Kirby is 20 this year (he's looking great for 20, too) and Nintendo is putting together an anniversary compendium on the Wii to celebrate two decades of his existence.

The announcement came on Saturday at part of a Nintendo Direct event, and there was no hint as to what games would be included on the disc or when exactly the game will be released. More information soon, then!

Kirby's debut came in 1992 with Kirby's Dream Land on the GameBoy, before progressing onto the NES in 1993 for Kirby's Adventure. Most people, I'd wager, will probably remember him from SNES titles Kirby's Dream Land 3 (never released in Europe, boo) and Kirby Super Star.

More recently we've seen Kirby in 2010's Kirby's Epic Yarn.

Nintendo put out a similar celebratory package for Mario's 25th Anniversary, which scored an 8/10 on despite being an utterly hideous PAL conversation.
