The only screenshot for the game.

Kid Kirby was a cancelled Kirby game intended to take advantage of the Super NES Mouse.

The game was to be about a younger Kirby, sporting a pink curl, and it would've been developed by Scottish company DMA Design, Ltd.(also known as Rockstar North). The only photos ever found of Kid Kirby were found in a Mexican Club Nintendo magazine issued in 1995, and in an Ex-DMA employees Flickr account[1], including images of levels and sprites that would've been featured in the game. Not much is really known about the game in general. At one point it was revealed that Kid Kirby was canned because of the Super NES mouse flopping and the game not playing well with a regular controller. As a result, the game was furthermore cancelled and never saw the light of day.
