Even when ignoring the game’s main story, Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe has plenty of content to offer. This is partially thanks to Merry Magoland, a central hub for the title’s subgames. This hub has special missions that can help players unlock new items, including special masks based off of popular Kirby characters. Long-time fans and newcomers alike will want to keep track of all Merry Magoland missions available!

Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe — How to Complete All Merry Magoland Missions

Though Return to Dream Land Deluxe is a remake of a particularly beloved Kirby title, Merry Magoland is practically a new game itself thanks to the sheer number of missions it boasts. There are 100 missions for players to complete. Many of these missions are generic subgame specific tasks that can easily be lumped together. These generic missions include:

  • Play the specified subgame for the first time.
  • Win in all difficulty settings for a specified subgame.
  • Complete all other missions for a specified subgame.
  • Wear a special mask for the specified subgame.

Each subgame has its own unique mask that players should wear to clear their missions. There are also some extra missions that aren’t tied to a single game. It’s fairly simple to keep track of the basics, but players might have a tough time handling more difficult missions. It might help to go over the tutorial of each subgame again by pressing X on their difficulty selection, as certain missions will heavily test your knowledge of the game’s mechanics.
