Kirby's 3D World is a fan game for the Wii and 3DS. It's a lot like Super Mario Galaxy because Kirby goes on missions to get stars and other objects to save the world. It seems to be a mix of the first two phases of Kirby GCN and Super Mario Galaxy. Quite a few fanon characters are in the game. In this 3D platformer, three other players can play as Meta Knight, King Dedede, Waddle Dee, or they can play as Puffballs available in 16 colors. They can play as 3 other helpers that the character chooses. There are also unlockable characters that require medals.

The story starts with a view of Pop Star from space. Then, a huge amount of rainbow stars fall to Pop Star, followed by a narration: "The Star Festival is at the end of the week! This is a festival that occurs every 5 years! Harmless rainbow stars will fall, producing wonderful new species of plants. Everybody gets to make a wish! But rotten and sinister ones will backfire, unless an evil spell called the 'Dark Day spell' corrupts Pop Star. But that will never happen, because only one species can use the spell, and that species is extinct. On Monday, everybody went down to Star Castle to make spectacular decorations! But little did they know everything was about to change!" The camera zooms in on Pop Star and views the Star Castle and how everybody is making decorations and having fun. Kirby goes inside (this is his first time at Star Castle) and meets Starlana, the magical puffball who watches the cosmos. "This is looking to be the best Star Festival ever!" says Starlana in her smooth, silky voice. Starlana tells Kirby to follow her into a room to their left. Kirby follows and inside is a giant star in a protected capsule. "This is what gives Pop Star it's power; without it, Pop Star would plunge into darkness! Promise to keep it a secret?" she asks; Kirby nods, acknowledging that he can keep it a secret. He goes outside to work on his and Jane's project for the Star Festival on Saturday: the crystal star statue. It looks a little like a star, but not quite. Kirby and Jane go down to watch the stars, which will get brighter every night until the end of the Star Festival on Saturday. But then, something bad then occurs. All of the stars get sucked up into a dark cloud. One cloud forms a sword, another forms the Dark Matter Swordsman. The swordsman grabs the sword and millions of Dark Matter minions form and head over to Star Castle at lightning speed. Out of the dark clouds, Zero comes and commands them to take the power source of Pop Star and use The Dark Day spell on Saturday to rule all dimensions. The Dark Matter swarm takes the giant star. The swordsman grabs it and and flees. Kirby chases him, but right when he almost grabs the main star back, the Swordsman creates a gate behind him with a giant 4 on it and Kirby crashes right into it. Everybody catches up to Kirby and Starlana says that Kirby needs to collect 4 mini-stars to open the gate. She explains that mini-stars can be found all over the place and that the Dark Matter has made many star gates; it's up to Kirby to find them before the Star Festival starts. Before Kirby leaves, Jane tells Kirby that she'll work on the project while he's away. Meta Knight, King Dedede, and Waddle Dee join in and they head for the first world: Green Dreams. The adventure begins!

After opening Green Dream's star gates, Kirby can't seem to open the last one leading to the next world. Starlana says he's going to need a boss star, a special star that opens special gates. Then Kirby looks behind him, and sees the next boss star! But Whispy Woods takes it. After defeating Whispy, Kirby goes down to Water Wonders, and by the time he gets there, it's Tuesday.

After Kirby defeats King Squishy, he opens the next door to world 3: Desert Hills. By the time he gets there, it's Wendsday. Then he defeats Firebrid and opens the door to Future Fun. By the time he gets there, it's Thursday... Will Kirby make it in time?

After getting to Dark Matter's town, it's early Saturday and he has to defeat Dark Matter and Zero before it's too late! When he gets there, he fights them with the Rainbow Sword. After a long fight, Kirby is victorious. Kirby goes back to Star Castle, where they all celebrate! Then, the rainbow stars arrive and create new species and plants. After the game is done, Starlana says there are some secret stars that unlock The True Arena. Go and Find them Kirby! Then the credits roll.


Kirby can walk in any direction and can do 4 air puffs.The objective is to collect stars to get past star gates blocking the way to the final boss.
