Kirby Air Ride (Brand New, Factory Sealed)


gcg0229_1 - Brand New factory Sealed - These are the original rare black label factory Y-sealed versions, not the later released yellow-top "Player's Choice" version.

Developed by HAL Laboratory, Inc. and Published by Nintendo of America Inc., "Kirby Air Ride" was released for the Nintendo Gamecube (GCN) in October of 2003. Originally conceived to be a game for Nintendo 64, Kirby Air Ride found its way to the GameCube. This is a 3rd-Person Perspective racing points action game (kirby's first) that takes you to the stars and beyond in an addictive and enjoyable adventure. Based on past Kirby Titles and patterned after games like Super Smash Brothers, you've never seen the puffy, pink hero move faster than he does in this game. Though the controls are simple, Kirby Airride delivers much more than simply racing, it is packed with fun modes, cool options, and great displays that will be enjoyed by the whole family. Kirby Air ride has different types of warp star vehicles that you can race (choose from over 20 karts), each one with different racing styles and strengths. There are 8 race tracks, brilliantly designed, ranging from "Mushroom kingdom" types to galactic star fields. And all you have to navigate them is your analog stick and "A" button. Simply press the A button to slow Kirby down, and hold and release to deliver a nice charge to make a speed boost. Of course there are various obstacles on the course and items for points. You can also have Kirby do various special moves to attack other racers and get an edge. And with one push of a button Kirby can steal his enemies abilities and use them to his advantage. The fun of this game makes it one of most sought after games around. It is great in multiplayer mode, as you can play with up to four friends (different color Kirbys for each) on a split screen. Kirby air ride also features LAN support for link-up play if you have the connectors. The graphics are nice, and the sound and music enjoyable. There are three distinct play modes (making this a three games in one package), including Air Ride (basic racing), Top Ride (top-down perspective) and the City Trial mode (classic with mini games). Kirby Air ride is a game that can be recommended to anyone, young or old, because of its simply design and challenge. It is a great little racing game, lots of fun to play, especially with friends. The development title (and what it's often called) is "Kirby's Air Ride." The common abbreviation is KAR, and in Japan the name is "Kirby no Air Ride." Includes all artwork, manual, disk and case. - Rarity Rating for New "B-" - Kirby Air Ride Game review by "Prince NES Gamer".
