The original Kirby Air Ride first hit the selves back on GCN in 2003. I didn't get the game until 2008. I played it and love it so much I forgot the reason why I sold it later on that year. But then after Nintendo WFC shutdown I decided to head back to my GCN and purchase Kirby Air Ride again and I must say it's so much fun that I don't know why there hasn't been a sequel yet! They could've at least make an HD version for the Wii and add Online Multiplayer! Does anyone else think so? I really hope....that Nintendo decides to go that route again with Kirby because it was something new for him and it was successful.
