Overview

Kira Kira Star Night is an indie 2D platformer developed and released by RIKI for the PC (with a ROM format compatible with the Family Computer) on August 11, 2013.

Created by manga artist and illustrator RIKI to celebrate the Famicom's 30th anniversary, Kira Kira Star Night is an 8-bit game that has players controlling young girl Fami-chan as she walks and jumps to collect stars moving around in patterns synced with the game's chiptune music (from artists BUN, Tappy, Robokabuto, and hally).

The game was originally sold in indie circles in a CD-ROM format (with both the ROM file, an emulator, and the game's soundtrack) with a bonus booklet (the "Kira Kira Star Night Perfect Book", including guest illustrations, the game manual, and a developer diary).

Updates & Ports

DX

The game later received an enhanced Famicom cartridge version on October 6, 2016, known as Kira Kira Star Night DX. Released by Columbus Circle, this version features numerous quality-of-life updates and a new alternate series of stages with a new soundtrack (consisting of new songs by famous game composers, including Takeaki Kunimoto, Yuriko Keino, Yuzo Koshiro, Nobuyuki Shioda, Manami Matsumae, and Yasuhisa Watanabe).

Along with the standard cartridge release, the game received a limited arcade release (as Kira Kira Star Night AC) and a limited event cartridge release (as Kira Kira Star Night DX the GOLD, or Kira Kira Star Night DX: Tournament Edition). The arcade version was made for a select Akihabara store and its funds were donated to disaster recovery, while the event cartridge were distributed as prizes for a release event. Both versions were later included on the "Kira Kira Star Night DX Perfect Book" appendix CD-ROM.

This version later received a limited-edition North American release (by Limited Run Games) on March 19, 2021, featuring a NES-style cartridge, instruction manual, soundtrack, enamel pins (w/ pinboard), and companion book. It was released in-tandem with similar editions of the Famicom music albums 8Bit Music Power and 8bit Music Power Final.

Furusato Nouzei Fujimino-ban

The game received a second update, titled Kira Kira Star Night: Furusato Nouzei Fujimino-ban ("Hometown Tax Payment, Fujimino Edition") on June 20, 2018. Made for the Japanese city of Fujimino, this version features a revamped "Level 2" mode (with Bit-chan from 8Bit Music Power as the playable character and a new soundtrack). It was originally released in CD-ROM format, with a later cartridge release (self-published) on April 13, 2020.

exa

The game later received an enhanced arcade port (for PC-based exa-Arcadia hardware) on June 11, 2021. Titled Kira Kira Star Night exa, this version builds on the Fujimino-ban version with enhanced support for HD displays and a new third playable character.
