Nintendo just announced Kirby’s Epic Yarn in Japan under the name Kirby’s Knitting Wool with this teaser video of Kirby bouncing on dinosaurs.



Did you catch the yarn King Deedee with puppet strings at the end? Japan gets to fight him first on October 14. Kirby’s Epic Yarn comes out in North America three days later on October 17.

    Can anyone else say “best looking Wii game yet”?

    • Code

      Although maybe I’m off base, but you might be biased >w<'

      • MrRobbyM

        Haha, I just mean visually. But yeah, opinions. (and I’m not even a big kirby fan. I just really think this ava was cute)

        • Code

          lol, yeah true, I have to admit although I’m not keen on the characters being fully transparent, the game is just so well animated, it looks very crisp.

  • KHSoraKeyBlade

    Loved the yarn King Dedede, this game is looking more and more brilliant every time I see the trailers

  • You sure it’s Kirby’s Knitting Wool? AndriaSang has it as Kirby the Yarn, huh.

    • Ren

      The original name is Keito no Kirby, wich translates to knitting wool’s kirby, or kirby of kinitting wool. Both names sound better than the literal tranlation, but it’s not like it matters, since we already have the ocidental name, Kirby Epic Yarn. You don’t see most people calling the kirby games as their japanese name, Kirby of the Stars.

  • Tom_Phoenix

    I hate pink…yet, I cannot help but find this art style to be endearing.

  • Advent_Andaryu

    I’m so excited for this game!!

    • thebanditking

      Im so worried about this game. Does anyone know much motion is used with these controls? I have always liked Kirby games but much like Skyward sword if this has too much motion I am out.

      • RX79V

        I think it will be something similar to New Super Mario Bros. Wii.
        As long as it is not as crazy as Wario Land Shake (with just way too much Wiimote shaking), I am all for this Kirby game.

  • RX79V

    There are lots of cool ideas in this trailer.
    Unable to die irks me a bit, but I still can’t wait to see the finished product. (Proceed to mark the release date on calender.

  • When I first saw screenshots for this game, I couldn’t really imagine how it’d turn out, so I didn’t think this game would be good..
    Totally changed my mind after watching this trailer :o
    The gameplay looks alot different compared to other platformers and alot more unique than the other Kirby games. Can’t wait!
