The blu-ray boxset will have all 100 episodes in HD quality. The Twitter post also states that there will be more information coming soon about the release and pricing.
The anime first aired in Japan between 2001 and 2003, with the North American release coming to Fox’s 4Kids lineup in 2002. The anime was a collaborative effort between Studio Sign, Nintendo, and HAL laboratory, along with help from Studio Comet.
As of right now, it is not clear whether the Kirby: Right Back at Ya! boxset will be getting a Western release or not, but we can always hope.
