Kirby's Avalanche: Rewritten

Hack of Kirby's Avalanche


Kirby’s Avalanche is infamous for being the one game where Kirby not only has a large amount of dialogue, but acts uncharacteristically rude compared to his other in-game depictions and very different from his usual cheery self. The game also has very stoic dialogue for many characters, backed with a decent amount of Engrish.

This hack rewrites much of the game’s dialogue to be more consistent in tone with the rest of the series; most notably, it makes Kirby nicer. Not everything is rewritten; some scenes are replaced entirely, while others are only slightly adjusted or even completely unchanged. If this game got an official release today with a new script, I’d like to think it would be something like this.

In addition to the normal patch, the download includes an alternate patch that also replaces all in-game references to Avalanche with Puyo Puyo (aside from the title itself). Apply whichever patch you prefer.

v1.1 Changes:

  • Adjusted dialogue for Poppy Bro Sr., Whispy Woods, and Kabu. Some lines used to have missing punctuation due to length limitations, but not anymore!
  • Adjusted some text box widths to be consistent with edited dialogue.
  • [Puyo version only] Rewrote parts of the tutorial to use Puyo Puyo terminology.
  • [Puyo version only] Replaced mention of “Avalanche” in ending with “Puyo Puyo”.
