In the long-awaited return of a platform game classic, the cute and adorable Kirby is back in a remarkably stitched together world of fabric and yarn, with beautiful graphics, unique gameplay and two-player co-operative play. Jump, battle … and darn your way through this epic.
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. This imaginative wild and woolly adventure launches across South Africa on February 25th 2011.
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 music 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 when Kirby’s Epic Yarn comes to South Africa in early 2011.
