The "5 Games in one!" feature of the game came from Masahiro Sakurai's need to keep the player's attention and interest in this SNES game, as he believed that massive games that were on the market at the time might overwhelm players or bore them with their consistent and continuous gameplay.

Sakurai also revealed a scrapped 6th game that was going to be available in the pack: "Kagero Mansion". This game would have featured Kirby's mouth "sealed shut". The pink hero would then have to utilize different items that represented copy abilities to get by.
