Retronauts Episode 540: Kirby Part 5

"...and the rest"

Almost two years ago, by request of Patreon supporter Anthony Oliveira, we recorded a podcast all about Kirby. Yet Kirby is prolific, and one episode wasn't enough. So we recorded another and another and another and...well, this is it. Part five in a five-part limited series.

For our last Kirby-specific episode, host Bob Mackey, guests Henry Gilbert, Ray Barnholt, and Anthony Oliveira cover Kirby's other games, ones that focus less on platforming and more on whatever else Kirby can do. Turns out that's a lot!

Description: We've covered every Kirby platformer to date over the course of four episodes, so what territory is left to trod when it comes to Nintendo's pink puffball? If you're a Retronauts listener, it may not surprise you, but Kirby has starred in a shocking amount of games that involve more than just left-to-right traversal. On this episode of Retronauts, join Bob Mackey, Ray Barnholt, Henry Gilbert, and patron Andrew Oliveira—who sponsored this installment—as the crew examines the many, many Kirby spin-off games. This episode is so exciting, you may have a mass attack!
