Kid Kirby was a cancelled Kirby game that would have been developed by Scottish developers DMA Design. Ltd. (now known as Rockstar North). The game was to feature an infant Kirby, sporting a pink curl. It also would have been controlled by the SNES mouse.

Not much else is known about the game in general, but it was likely cancelled due to the poor sales of the SNES mouse, and the game reportedly not functioning well with it.[1]. As a result, the game was cancelled and has not been dumped online in any way. Out of all the unfinished Kirby games, this one has the least information available, with only a few sprites from the game being available[2].

No, there is at least some evidence of the game existing as it was advertised in a Nintendo Power issue even if it never came out and not much information has surfaced on the game since. I'm sure about the sprites from the game being leaked shows that the game did have some development before being cancelled.

From the sprites and level design shown, this looks like it would have been some sort of pinball-type game, or at least it seems like that to me. Is there any additional information on what sort of gameplay this would've had?
