UPDATED: Thanks to the ESRB, we know which ones will be added.

UPDATE: The ESRB has added listings for Kirby 64, Kirby Squeak Squad and Kirby Return to Dreamland, which indicates they will be the three games in question. The original story is below.

A lot of classic Kirby will be coming to the Wii U in North America this week to celebrate the pink ball's birthday.

Nintendo of America sent the confirmation as a Tweet earlier today:

The three games have not been revealed, but there are eight candidates among systems currently available on the Wii U. They are:

  • Super Nintendo: Kirby's Avalanche
  • Nintendo 64: Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards
  • Nintendo DS: Kirby Canvas Curse, Kirby Squeak Squad, Kirby Super Star Ultra, Kirby Mass Attack
  • Wii: Kirby's Epic Yarn, Kirby Return to Dreamland

Note that the N64 and Wii games plus Kirby Squeak Squad are all available in Europe, and Kirby's Avalanche is on the Wii Virtual Console in all territories.

Gee whiz, I sure hope they do something like this for Metroid when it comes around! Like, you know... RELEASE ZERO MISSION IN NORTH AMERICA?!

Does Wii Count as classic in the sense they're referring to?  I'm guessing not, but if so, I really hope it's Return To Dreamland they load on the Wii U E-Shop, that game is crazy how it's retained its price.

I would buy the crap out of Return to Dreamland.

Pretty sure Return to Dreamland was already released. Or maybe it was on EU eShop...

From a quick google, it looks like just the JP E-Shop so far.  That increases the likelihood it could be one of the games in my mind, though.

In Europe we have Mouse Attack (Squeak Squad), Crystal Shards, Epic Yarn and Kirby's Adventure (Return to Dreamland).

My dream three: Kirby's Epic Yarn, Kirby's Return to Dreamland, and Kirby: Zero Mission.

Oh, excellent! I can finally get Return to Dream Land at a reasonable price! I hope that takes son of the steam out of the jerks on eBay.

Kirby 64 and Return to Dream Land are two of my faves, I'd recommend them for anyone who hasn't tried them.

I don't own Squeak Squad, but I think I'd rather get it for DS and play it there.

ARGH!

I just gave Gamestop like $30 for a USED copy of Return to Dreamland like 2 weeks ago.

I just can't win.
