I’m sure many of you here have played Kirby’s Adventure for the NES, or at least its Game Boy Advance remake, Kirby’s Nightmare in Dream Land. If not, you’ve hopefully seen the television series, Kirby: Right Back At Ya!, because the main antagonist, Nightmare, is appearing as an Assist Trophy in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. games.

“He will engulf the stage in darkness, and fighters will need to brawl blindly for a while. Look out for the effect before it goes dark, and play it to your advantage.” — Masahiro Sakurai

According to Sakurai, the blinding effect that Nightmare casts on the stage will even screw up CPU opponents—as will reversals and other effects that are intended to disorient human players.

I, for one, am really excited to see Nightmare Wizard in the game. I’ve personally always felt that he stands out above the likes of Marx, Zero, Dark Matter, and other bosses as the true villain of the Kirby universe. And come on, just look at that badass pose he’s striking in this picture. Bring it on, Sakurai.

Our Verdict

Colin McIsaac
I first played Donkey Kong Country before even turning three years old, and have since grown into an avid gamer and passionate Nintendo fan. I started working at Zelda Informer in August 2012, and helped found Gamnesia, which launched on February 1, 2013. Outside of the journalism game, I'm an invested musician who loves arranging music from video games and other media. If you care to follow my endeavors, you can check out my channel here: http://youtube.com/user/pokemoneinstein I was rummaging through some things a while back and found my first grade report card. My teacher said, "Oddly enough, Colin doesn't like to write unless it's about computers or computer-type games. In his journal he likes to write about what level he is on in 'Mario Land,' but he doesn't often write about much else." I was pretty amused, given where I am today. Also I have a dog, and he's a pretty cool guy. I don't care for elephants much. I suppose they're okay. You've read plenty now; carry on.
