This is the Japanese release of Kirby’s Dream Land 2. It’ll play in US GameBoys, GBC’s, and GBA’s. But the language will be in Japanese. Which shouldn’t matter much. It’s Kirby.
Kirby’s Dream Land 2[a] is a platforming video game developed by HAL Laboratory and published by Nintendo for the Game Boy handheld video game console. It was first released in Japan on March 21, 1995, and was later released in North America on May 1, 1995. It was released in Europe on July 31, 1995.
Kirby’s Dream Land 2 continues the adventures of Kirby from Kirby’s Dream Land and Kirby’s Adventure, adding three animal friends to aid Kirby in battle. It can be played on the Super Game Boy, and gives slight changes to the game, such as adding a custom color scheme, a special game border, and a few new sound effects.
Kirby’s Dream Land 2 was slated to be remade for the Game Boy Color as Kirby’s Dream Land 2 DX, but was cancelled along with Metroid II: Return of Samus DX. The original game was re-released on the 3DS Virtual Console in Japan on February 15, 2012, in PAL regions in May 17, 2012, and in North America on August 1, 2013. Kirby’s Dream Land 2 is also included in the Kirby 20th Anniversary Wii disc Kirby’s Dream Collection.
