'Kirby's Epic Yarn' (Wii) Gets Euro Release Date

by Rainier on Dec. 3, 2010 @ 12:18 a.m. PST

Kirby's Epic Yarn introduces an amazing new look based on animated yarn and a world of cloth and textiles. The creative approach is woven directly into the gameplay and allows the ever-morphing Kirby to take on a variety of new forms.

The cute and adorable Kirby returns after almost a decade in a remarkably stitched together world of fabric and yarn. In Kirby’s Epic Yarn, exclusively for Wii, help Kirby battle enemies, jump over obstacles and transform himself throughout this classic side-scrolling platformer with a twist.

A game for all ages, children, grandparents and serious gamers alike can enjoy the twists and turns of Kirby’s exploits together in a co-operative two-player mode. In Kirby’s beautiful and ingenious environment, literally everything reflects the game’s inventive textile theme. Whether by grabbing hold of zips or swinging on buttons, Kirby can explore the fabric environment, revealing secret areas and hidden items!

Not only is Kirby himself made of wool, but you can now transform him into an amazing array of new forms, such as a dolphin, a UFO, a steam train or even a giant robot. Due to Kirby’s new woolly form, he has a new form of retaliation to replace his infamous sucking attack. Kirby now uses a yarn whip to thrash and disarm enemies, unravelling foes or rolling them up into balls of yarn to fling at anything in his way.

In this charming adventure, Kirby is thrown into a fabric world called Patch Land by the evil sorcerer Yin-Yarn and transformed into woollen string in the process. Yin-Yarn has wreaked havoc by breaking Patch Land into pieces. Kirby, joined by the plucky Prince Fluff, has to track down strands of magic thread to sew Patch Land back together. Look out for the infamous villain King Dedede, his entourage of pesky Waddle Dees and Kirby’s mysterious long time rival, Meta Knight.

In amongst the battles, dramatic transformations and the quest for magic thread, Kirby also finds time for a spot of interior designing. Look out for two themed items and a piece of mmusic in each level which you can use to decorate new flats near Prince Fluff’s castle – enabling Kirby to make friends and unlock new challenges.

Kirby’s Epic Yarn is the first new home console game in the Kirby series since 2003’s Kirby Air Ride for Nintendo GameCube. It is also the first ever Kirby game created exclusively for Wii. Whether you plan to help your mother save Patch Land, or play as Kirby while your best friend controls Prince Fluff, there will be something to enthral you in this enchanting game

Key Features:

  • The look of the world is stunning, but it's also interactive. Pulling on stray threads might reveal hidden areas. When Kirby literally goes behind the scenes, the virtual fabric warps and bends to show his location.
  • Thanks to his versatile yarn composition, Kirby can take on a variety of forms both in his common actions and when he transforms into powerful vehicles. When Kirby dashes, he zips around as a car. In water, he turns into a submarine. At times he can even transform into a massive robotic tank, a UFO and other vehicles.
  • Two players can play through the entire game together.
  • Gems and collectible items are scattered throughout the environments for players to find.
