Nintendo has announced that it will archive the performance and make it accessible for replay for anyone who won’t be able to watch the concert live. According to the tweet from Nintendo, There will be no simultaneous interpretation for any other languages. The performance will exclusively be in Japanese.

According to the anniversary concert’s official website, original medleys of songs from previous games in the series will be played. And the fun part is that Kirby will be present too. You will see him enjoying the show on a sizable LED monitor.

“This event is a musical event in which you can enjoy original medleys of songs from past titles in the series while reminiscing on your memories with them. A large LED monitor at the venue will also feature a moving Kirby!”
