Kirby Turns Into Things, Awesome Things

Kirby's Epic Yarn
No matter what else happens today, Kirby’s Epic Yarn has really surprised and charmed me – entirely because I wasn’t expecting the game, but more over that I certainly wasn’t expecting to care quite so much if the little guy did come back for another adventure. As I said earlier, the amount of side-scrolling being seen in several games today makes me feel ten years old again, but it’s the entire virtual fabric world Kirby brings with him that drives that nostalgia home.

The minute game footage began to play, I was immediately remembering the first time I played Yoshi’s Island, and that’s something I never imagined I’d say, type, or emote in any way.

Of course Kirby can also turn into things, and you can catch some art for said transformations after the break – including the always important massive robotic tank.

  1. Yoshi’s Island was the first thing I thought of as well. I am only disappointed in the subtitle, especially announcing it right after Epic Mickey… it made it sound even more lame. Magical Yarn would have even been better… but… Epic Yarn? Really? I don’t buy it!

  2. It’s so sweet and cute I had to get an insulin shot. Love the artstyle and design choices made. When I saw the title it got me thinking “Canvas Curse but using yarn to “draw” the path” and then I got surprised in a good way. Another $50 that needs to come out of somewhere…
